…in a not accomplishing very much sort of way.

Seven weeks after major back surgery, Nancy is starting to paint the insides of the cabinets.  We figure they’re as clean as they’re going to get.

One coat of white Kilz Primer, then one coat of white Rustoleum.  Presto-chango: CLEAN!  If you’ve never painted the inside of a boat before, it’s an incredibly crampy job.  No way to be comfortable.

Today we glued the reinforcement on the cracked tops of the water tanks.   We used special G-Flex epoxy that sticks to flame-prepared polyethelene.  Quick tech note:  If glue sticks to polyethelene, how do you clamp it?  Hmmmm.  Hopefully we’ll have pictures tomorrow of the successful repair.

We also got to the bottom of the bilge sump.

Craftsman Screwdrivers are guaranteed for life, so we’re good there.  Under all that gooey goodness was two to three inches of asphalt I had to break out with a hammer and chisel.  I’m not kidding.

I’m not wearing a shirt because this crap will wash off skin but will not wash out of fabric.  It’s nasty.

We had a couple of great friends come by the boat today, offering to help.  Lots of things to do.  Thanks to Matt and Mark.
