Having just joined the forum, thought I would say hello to all. I don't have any questions at the moment, but i am absolutely positive that I, like most of you will ask for advice and assistance from the community.
My boyfriend and I are working on putting the Pearson
42' in at the 1000 islands in the coming weeks. We still have lots to do, getting the fundamentals functional, cosmetics will happen sometime down the road. As I fit in the 5' deep bilge
, but rather narrow opening 14" I was given the task of chipping out a solid mass of hard foam insulation
that was saturated with rather nasty stuff, accumulated and permeated over at least 15 years of everything including the kitchen sink. I persisted and got it done and am glad to see the light of day again. Most current
task for me is to some fibreglass work , alas its in the bilge
, so it seems I will be back in there again for another stint.
I wouldn't do it if I didn't love the idea that the work we put into her will make her stronger, fitter and more reliable when she's asked to carry us around the globe. All our efforts, no matter how smelly, tricky or arduous make the journey an experience worth living. Its the beginning of the voyage.
Will keep you posted on our progress.
