Bunk primed

Bunk primedI'm back!

This winter has been longer and colder than I'd like. In turn this, along with being desperately busy at work, has impacted how much I've wanted to do when down on the boat on the weekends.

It's easy to find reasons to stay snuggled up in the wheelhouse bunk reading when the temperature outside is below zero and the heating system on the boat has to run virtually full time in a vain attempt to keep the cold out.

Anyway, work on board has not halted completely. Here you see evidence of the bunks being primed, in preparation for painting.

The idea here is the bunks are painted and sealed, helping prevent any spills, or whatever, from getting to anything which may be stored below the bunks.

  2. I can relate, I'm not getting alot done on the house right now either as its too cold to want to work much and things I want to do like painting, caulking etc wouldn't set well in the cold. So how are you liking your kindle so far? I got a new Sony reader after the first one died and still not really impressed. The battery dies after a week of not using it at all and within a few days of light-med reading ( a few hours) Takes four hours to recharge and seems to only recharge on the computer.Not exactly convienient to have to schedule my free reading time around my battery

    I hear ya Tim! Welcome back!! We have not had this much snow in the Hudson Valley since the early 1970's. We usually get a January thaw, but that didn't happen this year. Record snow falls all over the US. Kinda makes it hard to believe in Global warming :)).

    Any way, the project is looking good and it's good to hear from you after so long of a pause.

  4. I have to confess that I haven`t been down to the boat for a while it is cold! isn`t it? The northwest passage is open! I don`t know how long for but that would be a great indicator that global warming isn`t just a myth! a natural, regular occurance maybe? but no Myth!

  7. Hi Rhianna

    It will soon be summer, then the excuse will be the weather is to good to waste working!

    I'm still loving my Kindle - it's charge certainly seems to last me well and charging while reading is not a problem - it seems I've actually only charged it a few times so far.

    Amazon are doing well out of me, as I'm on about my 12th purchased book already (that would be the cold weather recently)!

    Cheers

    Tim

  8. Hi Fred

    Snow is fun - lots of snow and other people that have no clue trying to drive in it is not so much fun.

    As to global warming, there is no such thing as a good scare to to get the grants flowing.

    Maybe I can lease Lady Jane out to some university or other to do important climate research off the Isle of Wight (not to far of a RIB ride from a pub though)!

    Cheers

  9. Hi Rob

    Boats and cold don't mix very well.

    The global warming thing... time we did more space exploration so we can leave this earth once we, mankind, have completely wrecked the place.
