Wednesday is OK so far

Last night we had a couple of heavy downpours.  This morning has been OK but now it is overcast and gray.

We dinghied over to Gallows Bay to pick up a few things for the mast project at Ace Hardware and St Croix Marine.  We also picked up a couple of post-mast project items for this evening... a 6-pack of Dos Equis and a nice hunk of pork loin.  And, for instant gratification, we each had an ice cream sandwich... heavenly!

It's difficult enough to be building a mast in a parking lot without the added troubles that the weather causes.  But, one must work with what one has available and be thankful...

Here's Bob yesterday glassing in some extra reinforcing biax cloth to the interior of mast half #2. We're going to have to order another 3 gallons of epoxy from Raka soon.

So It is Going...
