I thought that a normal 6-12 hour day was, well, normal. And the longer day might be tiring. No. a day of getting to some spot then spending 8 hours making a sail or a spar: THAT is tiring. Wowzah I am exhausted.
Summary: Saturday – Sunday one completed jib and a quarter finished mainsail, lots of sewing and sewing machine repairs. Monday: using the bird’s mouth technique to build a mast and a gaff. Here are some photos as evidence.
This has been an amazing learning experience so far and I am sure it is not about to let up. The next two days will be good too.
Now for some sleep to get me through it!
