It's just not true:

I have not gone back into practice...I am not doing heart catheterizations as suggested by illegally taken paparazzi photos recently.

I am fiberglassing tapes into the chines of the hull and will soon be glassing the cockpit. I am not totally pleased by my workmanship and will need to do some sanding. Maybe a lot of sanding. I hope black paint hides a lot of stuff.

Thanks to son in law Ben for the protective gear.

Paddle soon...

Lttle by Little...fear of commitment:

 A little tweaking and the fiberglassing begins. After that, the shape cannot be changed.

Paddle safe...

Little by Little...
   I would be ashamed to leave a patient looking like this after performing a proceedure, but this is kit boat building 101 and this is where I left off the project yesterday. The keel has been placed, and almost completly taped, to the side boards.
   This is by no means my strong suit. I can sew a tiny blood vessel shut with precision and neatness; but when it comes to this stuff...well, I do the best I can.
When aligned, it gets turned over and the fiberglassing begins. So far, so good.

Paddle safe...
