I don’t know whether I’m sandwiching the Tardis in between other projects or the other projects between the Tardis, but a lot is getting done on all fronts.
— I had some dental appointments that meant I couldn’t get epoxy-coated last week, so I started some light electrical work, wiring the main system fuses, the automatic charging relay that keeps the batteries topped up and some of the electronics.
— Exterior trim continues apace with the foredeck all done and a nice piece of mahogany wrapped around the cockpit. The last pieces around the deckhouse are all milled up and ready to go. Mahogany is so stable and easy to work, the trim seems to cut itself.
— Plumbing now runs up to the head sink, and all the holes are cut and pipes measured to get over to the head tomorrow.
— John helped me hoist the refrigerator aboard (not easy) and we figured out how the trim should work.
— At the Connecticut River Museum, we launched the Cappy 15 kayak and the Alva Starr Connecticut River Drag Boat on the same day. Both looked great and moved through the River with great aplomb. Almost no leaking in the Alva, which meant my first venture in caulking was a success. Also got my Jericho Bay Lobster Skiff into its slip.
