The space between the L5, and the S1 vertebra located immediately below, is where much back movement occurs, and therefore much wear and tear. I`ve had a disc lesion at the L5/S1 level for years, impinging the left S1 nerve root. Narrowing comes from the injured disc between the vertebrae being forced out of place,it then presses on nerve roots. Regular year swimming has been my management tool, building back muscle strength, to hold everything together. You are supported in the water while swimming, thus avoiding loading injury areas. Anything to get rid of referred sciatic leg pain!
Hope it goes well for both of you. Work at conservative long term management, avoid the knife if at all possible.

Good explanation. In my case the L5/S1 area was stressed by working on the boat. I was on the flybridge, hand sanding the teak at the base of the windscreen. Lots of sitting prone and twisting, kinda jerking while sanding. No immediate issues, but some muscles issues that the physio worked on. Then the referred pain hell - pretty much lost Feb/Mar this year. Back of knee, calf 'cramp' type pain, and later numbness down left foot and little toe. MRI confirmed issue, and surgeon figured steroid injection was worth a shot in may case as I had likely just pinched the nerve rather than suffered from long term disc damage. I am delighted with results I can tell you. Surgeon says very unlikely I will need to o back to him.

Matt
Doing both sides sounds pretty ominous. Hope your new job will not stress the area. Not sure whether you have had much referred pain but trust me, you don't want it. I'm 64, but you're young. Make some changes to what work you do if need be, but really look after your back from now on. Solstice needs you in good nick, and there are heaps of big fish waiting for you. Don't let some back issues screw things up longer term mate.

"Fair" is a pliable word. You can fair the sides of tour boat. Or, you can go to a fair. Some times it is a fair day. A woman's skin can be described as fair. Could be that the cost of something is fair. Might barter for fair trade on items. People can have fair hair. - And On and On..... fairly to oblivion!


So, it is fair to say that one thing as important as fairly well fairing your boat is for you to be sure to give your back fair time to heal before you find yourself flat on your bed trying to find a fair way to convince yourself that it was fair to trade health for sanding boat sides to fair, a fair way too early, before your back told you it was feeling a fair bit better!!


To be fair about this post: I must tell you that both my son and I have had basically unfair circumstances happen to our backs over the years, both his and mine occurring a fair ways ago.


To be fair about it all, I just gotta say, Life taint always fair!


Therefore I recommend you be fair to yourself and Flic by taking a fair amount of time to recover fairly well before attacking SOLSTICE fairing that will effect a fair manner of extra stress on your back before it has had fair time to heal.


What I say is only "Fair" and for you to take time to heal fairly fully is also very "Fair"!

Lol you're a goose

I'll be right mate. Thanks for your concern tho.

Being a contractor I do more physical work in my day job being on the tools as a carpenter than I do sanding SOLSTICE but can't take time off. No work no pay :-)

I do have weekly physio appointments and only plan to do a couple days of sanding per week so I am behaving.

:-)

This afternoons efforts. Scaff moved fwd now it's time to sleeve the port hole opening before glassing and filling. Last section to be done then I can barrier coat the filler with epoxy then spray high build primer on the entire Starboard side of SOLSTICE before moving to the Port side. Bit of an achievement to celebrate with a BBQ party at the boat I reckon

Popped down to make sure the tarps are all good for tonight's storm and while I was there I made, fitted and epoxy glued the last porthole of the starboard side. Tomorrow I'll fibreglass it in place before continuing with the fairing then barrier coating and priming woohoo so excited about that

You keep screwing around with her pretty eyes and soon she's gonna want more expensive mascara! Keep her going bro!

BTW, noticed you have side winder power saw showing in one photo... in Australia you guys use worm drive power saws too?? More powerful and accurate - IMO https://www.zoro.com/skilsaw-worm-dr...Q&gclsrc=aw.ds

Screwing around lol. Mate you know I have no plans so technically there's nothing to screw around with lol.

No mate I haven't seen a worm drive saw.

I use a Makita 7-1/4" circular saw which I'm sure y'all have over there too yeh?

IMO - Circular saw compared to a worm drive saw is similar to a hand saw compared to a circular saw... well maybe not quite that pronounced - LOL. But, no shat... you should get your hands on a good worm drive baby - I believe you will be impressed at the extra power and precision and maneuverability!
