The flu has our County by the throat. So far I am apparently too mean to catch it despite spending lots of time each day at the State Fair for an exhibit we put up. Take it easy...

Hatch lid looks perfect. Details...where the real time is spent.

And yet the media is claiming that the season "is exceptionally mild thanks to the improvements in the vaccine". A quick office poll shows that every single person that got the flu got the vaccine. Those who skipped the vaccine... no one was sick. Not one. We couldn't find one person who had the vaccine but no flu.

Something is odd in our office. Genetic freaks?

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Thanks Jeff! :D

Ha. Got out of bed, had breakfast, went out to the build shed. Tried to work, tried to concentrate. Felt like shit. Retreated back to bed. Spent the day there, not even interested in reading. Sweating it out. It be a real flu. :roll:

Hopefully tomorrow!

My EX would put vapor rub all over my back and chest. Then I would put on a tee shirt and climb into bed. Sheets would be soaking wet the next morning but it would kick the flu right out of me in a few nights.

Hope you feel better soon GB

Brings back memories of my childhood when my parents would make up a chest vest out of brown paper and tape, then smother my torso with vapour rub, then heap bed clothes over me to sweat it out. I can still smell the rub. :D

I've been plugging away today doing further preparation for glassing the deck, along with the deck to rub rail to hull junction.

I'm aiming to do the glassing the day after tomorrow. :D

I've started building an upturned cove running from the deck and curving to vertical at the perimeter of the aft deck inspection openings.

When glassing the deck, the fabric will be run up the cove. In due course it will be used as a structural backbone for an epoxy-filler-mix formed inner weather seal lip. It will be rectangular in section.

The pic shows roughing in of the cove with epoxy filler mix, against a temporary vertical wall covered in packing tape.
