I was waiting for someone to notice <sigh...>
After the bottom sanding I had about a week long health
issue. The "next" task was paint
the topsides and we had some rain and I could not be assured of 3 rain free days.
Then (as happens) time ran out and I had to go to the US for business in November for 2 weeks. November was really my drop dead date to refloat. Knowing that after November there was not going to be time. December had a little time but no time off to get it done, Kings Cup regatta
for 9 days and two December weekends consumed.
The end of Decemebr was another last window of opportunity (about 6 days) but for those days we had again a lot of rain. In perfect hindsight I started too close to the transition to the NE monsoon and underestimated the amount of rain we would get. Now it is December, Christmas
break and a business trip to Ohio
. I am not back in Singers until early Feb. I have some personal stuff going on as well.
The boat yard suggested letting a professional take over - However the professionals are what I am trying to avoid. Not necessarily for cost but for quality control Besides I don't think they can paint
in the rain either - LOL...
So put aside all the excuses and life just overcame hobby and rather than stress about it, I have resigned to taking it up again in Feb.
Thanks for asking and bumping the thread. I am looking forward to posting
the next steps of progress.
