76 days

It's been getting very exciting around here this week.
On Monday and Tuesday Richard came in and made a beautiful job of carving the name and home port on the oak transom.

On Wednesday the starboard shutter was put in to complete the planking !

Skippy started caulking on Monday and as we finished various other tasks we joined him.
Mark on Wednesday afternoon, Barnaby on Thursday morning and myself on Thursday afternoon. Tap tap tap.............................. as we filled the seams with the cotton that'll swell up when it gets wet and keep the water out. With the bulk of it behind us we hope to finish the caulking on Monday.
