Larry, we'll give you a pass on the boat work. Sometimes, you just have to take care of biz. :wink:

I stopped in for a quick peek and couldn't drag myself away from your GF18 thread.
I sure do enjoy reading about your builds. Best wishes sent.

Prayers to you and your family Larry. May she make a speedy and full recovery. Make sure she is using her inspirometer every hour if she can. It is very important and speeds the healing process.

we've got a tight family network that hangs together when needed
That’s a good thing Larry, very fortunate.

I hope you Mom’s doing better, Janet said to tell you she will say a prayer, her Mom just got out of the hospital a couple months ago with pneumonia, she’s 91 and doing great now, between the Hospital and family support she will come out of this just fine.

Thanks all for the thoughts, prayers and well wishes. We sure appreciate it. Still making steady improvement, the docs say they are going to move her out of PCU and into a regular room later today.

I did the night shift, got the day off so planning to do some boat work today :D

Sometimes boat work is the best thing to clear your mind and escape from the world around us.

Yep, work and fishing are good for the soul. Raining again though, didn't go fishing. Need to.

Masked off for gluing the rub rails, We don't want glue drips on our clean primer.

Image

Dry fitted the first layer all around with screws, but the 3 1/2" wide rails took some clamp persuasion also. Got the first layer on the starboard side glued, screwed and clamped...

Image

And the first layer on the port side fitted and screwed into position..

Then it started raining sideways again. We needed some more rain :?

Wish you could send some of that rain down this way. Always seem to be a day late, lately. Sorry to hear about your mom but also glad to see she is doing better. Prayers sent amigo.

Glad to see you're back at it.

What type of Nav lights will you be using?

Hope all is well.

Gary
