Well I had a great pizza/birthday party with my family last night and a great visit with my Mom and youngest sister today. Candice, my sister, is a very accomplished Brazilian Jui Jitsu competitor and I had never seen her compete. Well I still haven’t seen her compete yet but I did get to see a practice and it was very impressive. It was more impressive to note that neither her or the coach were breathing anywhere near as hard as the rest of the group. Amazing fitness. But this isn’t a blog about my sister’s athletic prowess but it is about the ongoing saga of finding epoxy.

I now have in my RAV4 enough epoxy to complete hull 816!!!! I got to East Cargo Marine about twenty minutes before they closed and managed to get what I needed; at least I think I did:-) . I couldn’t decide whether to get the 5 or 8 inch deck plates so I got one of each and I’ll see which perform better. I went with the West System epoxy as that is what they had although there was some System Three stock there it only had a few items and no containers of epoxy or resin. The total bill was over three hundred dollars but I am pretty certain thus will do for more than one boat. I am on holidays now so I am going to go gangbusters on completing hull 816 and then get ‘er wet and start learning to sail.

I’m just heading out from Winnipeg now, just stopped at the prerequisite Tim’s stop before hitting the highway…its a Canadian thing LOL:-) ! More progress photos to come!

I haven’r had any of Tim’s coffee in many a year.

The only one near us is in the Air Force Base. They must have had some Canucks stationed there.

My son-in-law has family in Winnipeg. That was where he was born and the rest of his family is in Toronto area. So I’ll have him look you up when he goes up to visit.

I’d like to get out to Ribstone or Calgary some day. Ribstone is where my parents met and had a farm in the 1930’s before they moved to Ontario also.
