Ok, so plans are changing daily. I'm not in control of the plan or the work... not my boat.
I've offered to help.. months ago... and went to see and help this w/e.
Everything seems to be offering up hurdles for the owner. First it was the move... the mover had a stroke... new mover found but added 2 2weeks to the time table. Then the rigging
needed a new piece from the bow sprit down to the water
line/keel... as the orrigional was calculated to be to weak (still not fixed). Then the chain order... didn't go as planned, now maybe here by end of week... but .... I'm not going to list it all here, there is so much more.
Guess I should have gone to look a month ago myself rather than relying on the owner to tell me how it's going. I'm thinking rose colored glasses are involved.
My estimate now is that they are a month out from first sail.... alas she is drying fast on the hard
and that will lead to more time in the water
before first sail.
Great people, and the boat is going to be a beauty when finally done. But I can't keep sliding my vac schedule here at work... my managment is getting pissed and I'm running out of my window where by my work demands are managable if I'm gone. This will happen mid next week and with only a "Tentaive" in water day of this friday....
Looking for opinions as to how a skipper/owner would feel if, their crew told them they that they couldn't offer help at some point. My window for helping closes and it will be late summer before I can offer time again.
Thanks for your input.
