Working on My Sole!

When I was leaving the boat today I forgot to remove my knee-pads and I ran into the man who lives on his boat next to mine. He asked me what I was working on and I told him, "My sole." He looked at me... looked at my knee-pads, smiled and said, "I guess when a man is working on his soul, he should be on his knees." (I'm pretty sure he knows I am a Minister). I smiled and told him my prayer life had doubled ever since I started refitting my boat!

The sole should be finished tomorrow. Even adding 3/4" hardwood plywood atop the existing sole still was not enough to clear the forward restraining strap for the new forward tank. I still  had to carve out the hatch for it to shut flush!

Here's a few pictures: BTW, there are many more pics posted on Annie's Facebook page...  https://www.facebook.com/sv.dreamboat.annie.

Fair seas and God bless!
