Christmas and New Year have come and gone. Nights are long and days are short. There
has been snow and rainbows but it's stayed warm and bright within my garage (now
known to all as 'The Boat Yard').
A couple of tricky dimensional problems caused much stress for a while but all in
all, it's a challenge I have embraced, all be it, with more hope than experience.
She's not much to look at the moment even though two months have slipped by since
I started to build.
The slow curing epoxy is second only to watching grass grow but messier to work with.
However, she has developed a presence. Currently she is not seaworthy and the Jumblies
may well be better advised to stick with their sieve, for the time being at least.
Reluctantly, I confess that I have been speaking to her on occasions and yes I have
kissed her curving form three times now. Some would put this down to the fumes from
the epoxy but those with a more sensitive and understanding soul will realise we
have already started a shared trust.
