Well, clearly I should have been blogging all winter about many things. How big my beard got, what I look like without it. The stubborn keelbolt that resisted every method of withdrawal and had to be drilled out, 7/8" hole 19" long all the way through the bolt! Maybe even skiing with my daughter at our local ski mountain. I'll add some pics to this post. Suffice to say I've been busy but not with blogging. I'll try to do better eager sailing fans.
Now, the boat is getting really close to ready, she's all painted up but for the deck, which I'll do today, and another coat of bottom paint. A few finishing details, reinstallation of some hardware and moving her gear and all back aboard. Planning to launch on Thursday, the 15th!
