« Part 8: Bottoms Up--Bottom is Done! Part 9 of Stevenson Projects Weekender Sailboat Build series Part 10: Keel Completed...bottom "dry fit" onto keel... »

Well…its about time, right? Sorry I have not updated the blog in 6 months…but the truth is I did not do too much on the boat for about 4 months…

BUT…a little more activity in the last month…starting with the “Boat House” we put together over Thanksgiving week…

I had had the boat sitting out on the patio for a few months in the sun…which is not real good…and then with the rain I had put a tarp over it…unfortunately the boat will not fit in the one car garage with all my tools (my shop)...which is one of the reasons I was affraid to move forward—-with the boat in parts I could always slip the boat into the garage…which is what I did…put the boat up on its side and slid it back into the garage…

We searched for some carports and my wife found this one at Walmart for about half of the price of others (I think it was $280???)...Also the size is perfect…if not toooo big…sorry honey!!! its 26’x12’ so I thought it would give me 3 feet on all sides when built and I actually have tons of room inside…

OKAY—-I AM GOING TO ADD SOME BUILDING PICTS AS SOON AS THIS IS POSTED IN BLOG #10…stay tuned…

jamie…it is really nice…no heater though!!! (as I say this from buuurrrr CA…)

jack—-”viking boat” is what everyone says when they see the boat in person…hopefully when the deck is on it will change…but it certainly does look that way now…

thanks lee…

You need to get a Hagar the Horrible hat when you work on it…

HAGAR WAS A VIKING CARTOON CHARACTER IN THE FUNNY PAPERS. IT WAS FUNNY TOO, KIND OF LIKE THOSE VIKING COMMERTIALS ON TV.

Buuurrr??? Did you actually use that word in the same sentence with CA? Somehow I just can’t see “buuurrr” someplace where you can have a building with cloth walls.

Sorry, winter in WI makes my cranky.

Glad to see you’re back at it. Happy new year!

LOL Tom!!! I knew I would catch the ire of all my true BURRRRRR friends across this cold land…

I will tell you that it is 10 am and there is a lot of frost out on the roof across the street!! It is supposed to stay in the low 40’s all day!!! LOL…but sunny…

Actually, in the winter, on the clear sunny days—-those are the cold ones…rain expected tonight and through the next week…so it will warm up…

I think i can picture Hagar…
