...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!
