Too Hot to Varnish (or Anything Else)

It was 105 at my house in Big Lake yesterday so for the past couple of days I've been working on getting the boathouse ready. We all know this gorgeous weather ain't a gonna last around the PNW so I'm getting ready for the change so I can keep on working on Oh Joy.

Here's a couple of shots of the house.



It's 18'X40' so she'll fit right in there.



The lighting appears decent and we've just finished washing 30 yrs of dirt out so it'll be better than having yard dust blow onto everything. Best of all, I can spray in there.

Oh Joy's just hanging out, baking in the heat, waiting for me to get her indoors.



She sure has some nice lines don't she?

Patience is the key to sailing and boat repairs. It seems the group likes this boat a lot so it should be worth the wait. Always fight the battle on the day of your choosing. It's been too hot to work here too.

Looks good Charlie but you you'll need to cut a hole in the roof for the spars.

Nope. They'll be on saw horses getting refitted themselves. She'll just fit but if or when I lengthen the bowsprit, she won't anymore. She's always had a bit of weather helm, especially with the Mizzen up and a bit more room between the Staysail and the Headsail would make life easier when flying dual Headsails. I'm probably gonna hit up my old buddy Bob Perry for this one though.
