I wasn’t wrong about the winter like weather yesterday and last night – we woke up to a dusting of snow. And oh, does the creek look pretty! The bow thruster tube is now in the boat and the glassing will probably begin today. I would find it pretty intimidating to cut a hole like this below the waterline but if you are a professional, you have faith in your skills. Fits like a glove. I’m not sure if you could see how thick this boat is by the sample I showed yesterday. This part tells the full story. If you count the layers can you tell how old the boat is – just like a tree? On another job we are investigating a window leak and Pat was able to spot the problem – there is a large gap at the upper corner where the holes were mis-cut. We can’t, as professionals, just pack this full of silicone – it will never work for the long term. We are going to build the corner up and then reinstall. That should solve the problem.
