Thanks Fuzz, OQ, Jeff and Lee. :D

By raising the waterproof line on the cockpit's aft bulkhead 4", increasing the size and capacity of the bilge pumps, and tackling the bar in moderate conditions only, Skinnydip will not be troubled.

The video of the bar this morning shows suitable conditions.

Today I've been doing the fiddly job of tacking together the panels (some old, some new) that form the new bulkhead at the aft end of the cockpit. I decided to tack them together in situ, to get everything aligning to existing structure as closely as possible. Packing tape has been used to stop the bulkhead bonding to the hull or sole at this stage.

After its gone off, it will be removed for further detailing and fairing. It will then be installed and glass taped to the hull.

Well some days you end up working ugly.

If you're doing rework, you usually start working ugly.

Today I worked ugly go to whoa. :wink:

Clearly our standards for working ugly are just a tad different :wink:

Agreed that for each of us, what is an acceptable and unacceptable standard varies. But who's watching? Who cares?

But IMO, working ugly is the same for all of us.

Sometimes we feel good about what we are doing. Other times, we accept that it's shit that we need to work through, to get to the next good moment.

My 2 cents ....

Well and true statement. I always say " it looks bad now but just wait till I finish!" Sometimes that could mean it will look better, other times not so much. :wink:

Agreed OQ!

I cleaned up yesterdays work this morning, put some protective glass over parts of it, trimmed it up this afternoon, and it doesn't look too bad! :wink:
