Final layers of epoxy and glass; we're ready to paint!

Well, Joel spent another weekend at the boat while I was finishing my last two papers and finals for summer semester. Now, I'm done with school for 2 months, and Joel finished applying a coat of resin to the hull, glassing the rudder, and faring the keel. Wednesday, we're both off of work, and the weather's supposed to be beautiful: 81 degrees, sunny and clear. Everybody knows what this means: Emily gets to go to Dairy King in Breese again! OK, so that's only a minor part of it; we're going to start applying barrier coat to the hull!!!!! So stay tuned, because Joel, Bob, and Emily are going back to the boat come Wednesday, so more pics will soon follow. Here are some that Joel took this weekend.

From the homefront...

Well, Joel and I were back at the boat Friday night. I finished painting the inside of the hull, and had to come home to work all weekend. Joel, however, has been staying at Boulder all weekend. We set up the bed cushions in the v-berth before I left that night, and Joel's been working on applying a coat of resin to the hull for the past two days and is sleeping in the boat :) I wish I could be there helping him more, but between my part-time job at the local house of cards (Hallmark),reading vast amounts of literature and writing papers for the two summer classes I am taking, I just can't devote as much time right now as I'd like to :( However, I know I'm off this coming weekend, and if the weather stays night, I'll be back at the marina putting bottom paint on our baby! And after that, she's going in!!!
