I apologize for not completing this blog series. I graduated September of 2008 from the boat school, and I was unable to stay to complete the repairs to the Schooner. I was set to leave Washington State for our drive back to Texas, and the boat had not been completed. 3 or 4 of the guys who working on the boat stayed after graduation to complete the repairs and get the boat back into the water. The boat was finished and relaunched about a month later. I am in the process of compiling the remaining photos to complete this series.
As for me, I have settled into our new place, and I am have been in the process of setting up shop, while juggling other jobs as well. Thanks for all of the great responses from all of you who have followed this blog series. I hope to complete this soon.
