Just be careful and pace yourself some. Many years ago I learned the hard way that if you burn both ends of the candle for long enough your body will slow you down one way or another :help:

I learned that already. I got chronic bronchitis from sleeping too little years back. Now I sleep more.

You do a great job! As others say, you almost build two big boats, that's a hugh amount of labour. I think it's normal how you feel.
Don't forget, you're a great example for many others and due to this forum you will be for a long time!

Just keep going.

Well, we finally got back to sanding the Skoota.

And we don't like the way the primer coat looks. Just a few too many waves.

So, i ordered some 180 grit Mirka and plan to torture board it.

Meantime, will start fairing the port hull.

This mornin the RH was 28% and so too dry to tack off anyhow. I am running 2 humidifiers, but the furnace is a condensing type; so it fights me. Started to humidify about 2pm; after 8 hours, two hunidifiers are up to 39%. Our target is 55%..

Hell, 17 was our high the other day.

We are dipping to single digits at nite.

The wind is bitter mean from the north. Pretty sure Fuzz sent it here. He is probably sea tempered now; we don't get that.

This is technically cold for November, but we get highs of minus 5 a few times a year and they close schools on highs of minus 10.

First year we lived in SC they closed school because of cold. We didn't think to listen to the radio that morning so my son went to the bus stop. In shorts because the class rooms were too warm at 75F. It was 38F outside. Apparently we are a bit softer than you northern staters.

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.

We still hate the cold. It sucks. I want to move.
