Here's where we are right now

Now that the chicken wing contest has passed, I have had a chance to resume the Correct Craft project boat. The "covering boards" being complete, have now vacuumed off the deck in preparation for the next step: filling in the area with straight planking. Gotta make decisions, though, whether to have seams inbween planks or not....too bad Stanley isn't around anymore for consultation.

chicken wing cookoff

That's what I been doing lately...ever since in a three pint buzz, I signed up for the "wing ding cookoff". that was 2 and a half weeks ago. Since then I've been working on my special Icelandic Viking wings that will blow your fxxk'n mind man! tommorrow, Jan 20th, the event happens. Please pray that I achieve 3rd place. FYI: I had never cooked wings before signing up for this. Vote for me, the underdog.

23 strips of wood...

...went into the bow "covering boards", (i use this term gingerly). Let's shout out YOO-HOO!! for finishing this pain inthe butt portion of the boat! think about it, 23 little pieces of wood forced into bending around a curve, a curve so-o-o tight I was worried about them snapping! Anyway, this is not a time for complaining, for dwelling on bad things that could have happened (but didn't) ...nay, now is a time for celebration for plowing through this thing! Please help me celebrate by raising your glasses high and saying "Skol" in a grand Danish/Icelandic/Nordic tradition!
