Not Dead

I am not dead and the Jenny did not sink.

This spring, my girlfriend and I bought an old house with enough land to bring Jenny home which is where all the tools and materials are.  The logistics were becoming increasingly difficult as the project focus changed from basic fiberglass and rough structural work to the finish details.  When I went to the boatyard to work on the hull all my tools fit in one bag.  As the project progressed this was no longer the case.

The old house needs tons of work and will be a decade or two project.  Come to think of it, the boat has become a decade project too hmmm...  Anyway...  The house had some priority work that needed to be done and then there is all the settling in and stuff and Jenny just had to wait.  Now I have to schedule fixing the house, building a workshop and getting back to work on the boat.  I really need to quit my day job...

I left off with the seacock replacement project.  The head and sink are complete.  The raw water intake for the engine will need some modifications because the replacement hardware is a bit larger than the original.  The cockpit drains will need a lot of rework for the same problem.

Today, I started a list and spent some time remembering where I left off.
