Karl, I would also compliment your work but am concerned you might start to get a big head. :lol:

Hi,
Thank you all my friends for the compliments and Tony is right but only paint fumes and smell got to my head and therefore I am glad to smell clean fresh air for the next few days before I tackle the last paint job the cabin floor from frame A to C. After that I hope it will be clear sailing through mounting the deck hardware. This is my plan till the end of this year leaving the fitting to trailer and bunks and final sail rigging to the New year before next May.
Greetings from Karl

Hi George,
You did send me a picture of a hand drawing of the sail rigging per email, but if you could send me also pictures of your deck fittings near the mast it would help me for sure. I do not understand what you mean me having used a lung ? I will concentrate today on preparing the cabin floor for painting. The last bit of painting where I need to switch on the gas heater for a couple of days.

Karl, I'm guessing he meant "lug" rig.

Looking forward to seeing your lug rig. I am strongly considering going that route as well.

Hi,
Yes George must have meant lug rig. Today I was back to sanding the cabin floor before I can paint it and because I loathe sanding so much I only managed to finish half of the small cabin floor. Then I got a funny picture sent from my sister should I not make it onto the water with my boat next Year I could always use one of these:

In my family there is still the thought prevalent that my sailboat will not float and sink like a stone on splashing day that is why they rather want to push me into direction old age home and the transport vehicles there.
I am looking forward to the big splashing party and with the first sail on the boat I have the support of my brother in law who is a real captain who is sailing every Year a couple of weeks on the Adria or Baltic sea. Nothing can go wrong wrong wrong.
