We had the most fabulous weather, weeks above eighty, even up to 103 degress and I have been swimming every afternoon after working on the kayak. I didn't want to leave the camera in the car for fear of the heat and thieves.
Now, it has been cloudy for a week, back to low 70's. Bah. The close-up shows the repaired ding. I filled it with layers of thickened expoxy and a fiberglass patch. It's not noticible when viewing the whole deck.
This week-end we are going to Port Townsend, the first time since 2002 when I bought the kayak kit. I'll stop in at Pygmy Kayaks to buy a sea sock for flotation and maybe a few other accessories. I hesitate to make predictions on the completion date, but I have four days of work left (that is if everything works right the first time)
