Yesterday I was concerned that epoxy I had applied to the area forward of the opening for the centreplate was not curing, but by late afternoon today it was dry to the touch.
For the past couple of days I have been blessed with ideal conditions for preparing the underside of ‘Sandpiper’ for further applications of epoxy and paint, but I have only had brief moments in which to carry out the task. That was because life has been too hectic with demands upon my time. The theme continues; because this morning I was unexpectedly called out to assist one of my daughters who was on her way to an appointment, but she couldn’t complete her journey because of a flat tyre. This afternoon I attended a function at the church, and this evening I did not want to forgo my customary walk.
Tomorrow I shall be a chauffer for one of my grandsons, and I shall also be his locksmith. He would like me to install a good quality lock to his living accommodation which happens to be 75 miles from where I live! How long these things will take is anyone’s guess. Therefore I doubt that much progress will be made on preparing ‘Sandpiper’ for the water.
