Pictured, is the wood that I will epoxy together to make a four inch spacer for Carl’s windlass project. He has been working hard re-coring the deck where the old windlass was mounted. If you remember, the old windlass was 36 years old so it was a matter of replacing it or re-building it, we chose to re-build it. Our newly re-built Ideal windlass should arrive sometime next week and we will be ready to drop it in place.
As I begin to epoxy the wood together, I snapped this picture of an early morning sunrise in Boot Key Harbor. We just had a cold front pass through so there are quite a few clouds, but there is still beauty. We have been in this mooring field for about seven months now with the exception of one month in Coco Plum. Carl and I have both been working at jobs and trying to refit the boat at the same time. It will all come together soon and we will be on our way.
