Various events have transpired against me maintaining momentum with the renovation of ‘Minnow’. Today, shopping, housework and tiredness sapped any enthusiasm I had for continuing the work. Rain and dismal weather contributed to my lack of motivation - even for spending a quarter-of-an-hour working on ‘Minnow’.
Winter is on the doorstep, followed by spring, but unless I can regain momentum, ‘Minnow’ may not be ready for an early outing next year. Weather plays an important part in my progress, because my garage is not insulated against the cold, and for the most part I require the door open for setting up my Black and Decker workbench. There isn’t enough room in the garage for the bench when the door is closed. Essentially, the majority of items I make for the boat are shaped and assembled on the bench which I place in the open by the garage doorway.
With cold weather approaching, my prospects of rapid progress are remote, but whenever I can motivate myself and conditions are suitable, I shall endeavour to carry on the good work.
