    I just read about your fall, that is a nasty one. A reminder to all of us no-longer-all-that-young people to be careful on ladders, they do have wards at hospitals devoted to them.

    OUCH!!!

    I've had a couple of folks that I'm close with go through that.
    I know OUCH!!!

    I've had two spinal fusions and haven't "worked" for 21 years due to that.
    You have OUCH!!!

    I respect your pain
    Respect your OUCH!!!


    BTW, killer build!!

    Thanks Lloyd. Progress is a bit slow, at the moment. I'll get back on the horse soon.

    That fall does sound very nasty. :(
    I fell down the companionway of our sailing boat once, backwards - for a split second I was airborne, and wondering what part of me would come into heavy contact with something first. My noggin made contact with the sole a micro-second after my ribs had an altercation with the edge of the engine box (this probably helped to slow me down a bit on the way down which was useful....).
    Fortunately my ribs were just a bit bruised, none broken, but still painful.
    Meanwhile, I am enjoying your building thread very much.

    Boat is successfully moved, with the shelter rebuilt.

    Ace photos John, she is looking very impressive and awesome indeed!
    An awful lot of hard work has gone in so far - and there is still a lot more required. I am tres impressed by your staying power and dedication.

    Some great camera work there, and the best look yet at the shape of "her". I have to say, that outside chamfer, and the forefoot, looks spot-on, but may shed some water outward and upward, a little spray knocker forward there might be an idea.

    Yeah nice to get a good look at the overall shape of her.

    Got a name picked out yet? I suggest "Blue Ribbin'."

    Thanks, Mr Efficiency. I think you may be right. A little spray rail might be a very good idea.
