You gotta love those glory days, like the hull assembly on New Years Eve. And, after a recovery day, another day of amazing progress: We got the bottom on yesterday, then rolled it and were able to get all the bracing in for the decks.

And then there’s days like today, when one stupid stick will cost hours of confusion and frustration. I guess we had it coming. A lot of staring, walking in circles, back-tracking, and muttering. By the end of the day we muscled through and were able to get most of the hatch framing in.

In another day or two we get to spile in the decking–now that’s fun.
