Merry Christmas And Happy Holidays

Well, another Christmas has come, I'm a bit older and wondering what the next year will bring. This last year was quite an experience with two major hospital stays for my wife and I, and I started the boat this year. Thankfully, the both of us are fine now and good health.

The weather has been warm for December and I've chaffed at the bit wanting to work on assembling frames. The epoxy requires 50 degrees or warmer and we've had plenty of that. Unfortunately, it also requires a wallet full of cash and that has been somewhat lacking due to the medical bills.

Thankfully, that too is coming to an end and 2013 looks to be a great year for us. I'm hoping to have the hull built and flipped by the end of next year. We'll see.

Since we are planning on a nice wood finish, the hull will be covered with a mahogany veneer  which will require more time to apply and finish. But I find that finish to be extremely attractive and I feel the effort is worth it. The veneer will carry up the sides to the deck and probably the cabin as well.

Anyway, here's to another year completed and wishing all of you a great year in 2013.
