Be ready to adapt
It seems as if every day we arrive at the boat yard, our plan for completing projects changes right at the beginning. No matter what we think we’re going to do, some challenge will send us on a different route. Yesterday, for example, I had two projects in mind, both of which required a drill. Unfortunately, our much-loved cordless drill from Home Depot seems as if it has given up the ghost, or more specifically, I think the batteries have. I guess rechargeable batteries do not like to be left unused for 2 years.
I loved this drill! 🙁
With our drilling projects thus shelved, we went back to the work that we had been doing the past several days, compounding and polishing the hull. One thing I know for sure, no more than 1% of the people selling a boat are putting as much time, effort and money into it as we are!
We not only compounded and waxed the topsides
and above-deck areas, we did under the boat as well!
