Well, not really complaining too much because it sure beats being jobless and homeless living under a bridge somewhere...just not in my 'happy place'!!!

Anybody else not doing what we all love to do, and what is that, if not too incriminating?

Boat is 40K lbs approx.
You gluing things down today with a lack of ventilation? (Think that was meant for the boat weight thread, yes?)

Good to know.

Here's a tip...take it or leave it...if the ceiling starts to drip phosphorescent globules of iridescent slow motion goo, it's time to take a break

I'd rather be boating than working on "the list" of home improvements.

But then again, since we are getting 35 knot winds and 12 foot seas, maybe knocking a few items off the list isn't such a bad idea at the moment.

Too hot for boatwork today, so I fixed two towel bars, hung curtains and cleaned the garage, grocery shopping. Does it get better than that? Highlight of my day was when Cardude texted that he'd been run aground by the propwash of a big tow on the Gulf ICW. Good samaritan pulled him off.

You better be done with your Bucky projects by December. I coming to see you; I know where you dock!

I'd rather be cruising my trawler than running my charter boat. Just finished a week of charters. Heading up the Pocomoke river on Tuesday for 3 days of cruising and kayaking.

I'd much rather be boating than sweating my quadrantal spheres off unloading rocks in Cleveland.

Frankly, I'd rather be boating than doing just about anything else.

"..putting together IKEA kitchen cabinets grrrrrr "

Only the first one requires looking at the drawings ,

after that its a snap, and they are worth the effort.

Well slap my ass and call me Judy, FF...thanks for that tidbit of condescending information and I'm glad you are so happily entertained by simple repetitive tasks

Myself, I'd rather go boating, which was the whole point of this thread

Having laid up 11 drums of resin to create my 90/90 I'm glad too.
