    And after a while you have 3' books of boats (1 1/4'' each). Car parked 40' away from the carage (becouse your project doesn't fit in the carage and a dinghy, all the tools, a diesel engine, 300sqm of biax, a barrel of resin and some sacks of additives for it and something else are allready there ). Timber stacked on back yard lawn (or what used to be lawn)... and the spare time, when not building one, goes to talking about boats and so on... :D

    You forgot the wife patiently and silently dusting anchors 'temporary' stored in the lounge, putting away rolls of rope, stepping over rolls of fiberglass, vacuming wood and iron shavings off the carpets, bringing tools in when it begins to rain... :rolleyes:

    Small start there Clodgo :D

    A box of seacocks, hulltroughs and other BEATIFULL brass items in the middle of living room. But also some "boat related items" like scuba tanks, fishing gear and pelican cases for "sensitive" and "pressious" instruments around..
    Got to carry them away before she is home...

    I am covered with prickly fiberglass dust and I smell like resin. My girlfriend is very tolerant.

    Wait until I install the sauna, sound studio, and observation bubble. :p
