Log for the Week Ending November 2, 2003

For the second week in a row, the weather was not conducive to completing the exterior barn painting--except for at the end of the wee, Friday and Saturday, but by then I was deeply involved in several Glissando projects and was loathe to turn my back on them.  A heavy guilt came over me knowing that I could be blowing the last opportunity for paintable weather, but the back side of the barn will have to wait until the current boat projects are complete.  I suspect I'll get the one or two good days needed sometime this month to get the stain on the siding in the back, as all I need is dry weather and something over 40 degrees.

After many weeks of intense construction activity on the barn and shop, it feel weird to write that I basically have nothing to report in that arena.  All that remains, really, is some fine-tuning of the shop operation and equipment, and the need to complete the exterior painting, as well as build a shed roof over the oil tank to protect it from snow sliding off the roof.

Log for the Week Ending November 9, 2003

As I guessed in last week's log, it looks like there may be no more exterior barn painting this year.  The weather all week was dismal--gray, rainy, drizzly, foggy, and just plain awful--and then, when the sun finally came out late in the week, it turned very cold.  Oh well.  We'll see what happens.

Because this log is your foray into my weekly activities, I feel it is appropriate to use it not only to post the details on daysailor progress (and barn/shop, though most of the updates are over with there), but to also point you to my ongoing projects on Glissando, when applicable.  To that end, please click below to check out the latest projects, and see what I have been spending my free time doing.

Otherwise, I'm afraid there is no progress to report this week.

Log for the Week Ending November 16, 2003

Once again, the astute among you will note that this log (such as it is) has been posted several days early.  I went out of town from Friday to Sunday, so I thought I should post before I left.

With that said, however, I must apologize for this "anti-log".  I have nothing to report for this week.   Look for more and better updates next week.  See you then.

Log for the Week Ending November 23, 2003

The time to begin construction is fast approaching.  In one month, I will mark the one-year anniversary of ex- Sea Witch's delivery to North Yarmouth.  That anniversary date, give or take, is my goal for beginning new construction.  In reality, it will likely end up being after the holiday season, but in any event I plan to have the last remaining bits of interior structure removed, and the interior hull grinding complete by that date, after which the hull will stand ready for new material.

The concept and vision for the boat is always close at hand, and I thought I would take a few moments to ramble a bit about the coalescing of my thoughts, and to solidify a design direction.

Oh, and happy Thanksgiving!
