Slowly but steadily we’re beginning to tick things off the work list.
Hanging around the shed working hard with the team is great fun and although we’re right on schedule, I have to keep reminding myself to be patient, I’m busting to see Youngestround.com back in the water ready for the start line!
Every day we finish up exhausted but that doesn’t stop my brain from constantly running through a million things, even if I had the time I couldn’t think of anything else! I feel all keyed up, its like I’ve got ‘get to start line, get to start line’ chanting not just through my head but my whole body.
Tomorrow’s job list includes having the keel bolts and rudder x-rayed to check for weaknesses, glassing in cabin knees (supports), more construction on the dodger (solid canopy offering protection from the weather) and finalising the targa (frame on the stern supporting the solar panels) design.
The support we’re continuing to receive is amazing, from equipment suppliers to everyone stopping in to lend a hand with the work!
