What is the Scots technique for....

Postby FullCircle » Sun Mar 16, 2008 2:48 pm

.... working on the boat in crap weather.

I had promised myself to go down to the boat (again) today and start catching up on my infeasibly long list of things to do before launching, but the weather is Winter in Scotland style rubbish again, and I cant motivate myself even to leave the house, let alone do interior jobs in slightly wavering and moaning boat in a cradle.

How on earth do you guys get finished in time for launching, or do you do all the jobs while afloat in the balmy summer days?

Balvicar boatyard is buzzing this weekend - the first workable weekend of the year.

No-one is going to be in for Easter up here :)

It's been cold but mainly dry in West Yorks, I had chance to change the discs and calipers on me tow vehicle ready for next W/E so that's good.

Sorting the bits out on the mast is going to have to wait untill after the Easter trip now, who needs VHF on Windermere anyway???
