I have spent the last several days on all kinds of details. Painting the underside of the deck sheets, reinforcing the seat and seat back, putting more coats of varnish on the dash board, figuring out the wiring, the horn, the battery charger, and trying to accumulate all of the pieces and parts it will take to finish the working parts of the boat.

Sometime,s it rained. Sometimes, it was nice. Often, it was cold. I am tired. I am sore. My back hurts. My eyes are scratchy.

I think I’ll watch some football.

What a mess . . . !
