We laid up and carved the mast for Stella this week. A mighty thing it is. Here we are drawing the curves on a lovely piece of Sitka spruce my friend Rob shipped down from Alaska..
Creating a sixteen-sided thing.
And a round thing.
And an erection party.
Oh wait--two erections. In the same day. Did I mention I accidentally bought a sailboat on Craigslist? The cutest little Hobie Holder 14. It was too good a deal to pass up. Just the thing I needed.
We had another community work day on our friend Dave's studio. It has been a wonderful thing for everyone, and Dave is delighted. We are getting close!
Omo had a little accident on her maiden voyage. Janek is grinding off the patches.
Hmmmm. Maybe it wasn't so little.
Okay, it was a pretty good wreck.
But like a scary head wound, it doesn't look so bad once it is cleaned up. Two cracked ribs, easily repaired, and a new bit of side-panel.
This is why I don't get more done. Sunrise from my pillow.
