I like eating well too!

First morning to wake up to 76° temp., it's been months of near 100° at 5 am. Hope this is a sign of building to start!

We have been seeing temps in the high 70s also. But we are also still getting into to high 90s and a few 3 digits too. Oh, and this week a tropical storm that came to be a few miles off the coast.

Hope some cool air comes our way soon. I took the SandPiper out the other day just for a ride.... Forgot my hat, forgot the sunscreen and forgot the cooler.... From 5 pm to 8 pm on the St. Johns River, 3 hour cruise. It was 98* and humid. Still a great ride, you will love that FS14 you are building.

74° at 8:30am Got the windows opened!

Got to do alot of yard work in backyard for the SandPiper. Need to level out an area, maybe put down white gravel. I put her back there for the storms, but not on a level surface.

The Stiletto (LM18) is airing out, been covered for too long! With the weather as nice as it is, building will be in full swing now...

Mom's hip is healed very well. The doctor told her she can drive if she feel like it, she just turned 88 on the 16 of Sept. I think she is doing better then me and most of my friends, hell we are in our 50's and 60's!

Are you going to toss in a picture of the LM18 among all the weather reports? Or a cup of mixed epoxy with mixing stick, or sandpaper, or the clogged shopvac filter? :lol: :)

The SandPiper (FS14) parking spot. Just need to remove the trellis and level with gravel. Should have taken a photo before clearing the jungle. The Stiletto (LM18) will stay in the carport for now. Going to build a low ceiling boat shed in the backyard after I finish her.

Looks like it will be a good spot. Will there be any sort of canopy for the Sandpiper, or sun, clouds, and stars? :)
