7 1/2 hours to do 4 hours work

but that's Ok! It was nice having company in the shed today. My buddy Jim (Sticky Fingers) Campbell came over to help out with the epoxy job.

Jimmy's the curious type of guy who's gotta see if sticky epoxy is still sticky! :-) That's Ok too! I'm sure we've all stuck our fingers in places we shouldn't! The day's task was to wet out the fabric I hung yesterday. I figured it'd take two of us about 4 or 5 hours.

Another cinematographic feast for your eyes! Go get two toothpics to hold your eyes open for this one!

I started an hour before Jimmy got there and was 3/4's of the way down the first side when he showed up. After a ritual offering of tobacco to The Great Peacemaker we got down to business. We finished both sides by lunch time and took a break. During that time the roller sleeve permanently glued itself to the roller frame so that got tossed. Another hour and we had the transom done completely encircling the boat wrapping it all up by 14:00 hrs! It was a good day. Results tomorrow. Standby....
