Disappearing Snow

Work continues on the spars: planing, ripping, and notching staves for the mizzen mast, main yard and boom; varnishing and painting the boomkin; and, installing new (more suitably sized) hardware on the mizzen boom. Gluing up the spars is next. The main mast will come later - hopefully after gaining some experience with these smaller spars.

We were out of town for five days. When we returned, most of the snow - but not all - had disappeared. The main barn doors are still snowed shut but I can get into the barn to begin setting up to resume work on Gardens' hull. Maybe, if we go away for another five days, the temperatures will warm a bit more... and work on the hull can continue.


  1. Hmmm....we got 5 inches on Monday night, and are supposed to get another 8-10 tomorrow night. I feel like something isn't fair about that.

    1. Hmmm... words fail me... but I guess it could be worse: we could have gotten 5 inches on Monday, and could be looking forward to 8-10 tomorrow night...
