I haven't got to do any work on my boat to amount to anything forever now. I have been building a house for a customer on a lake that's about 65 miles from my house, so I stay down there a lot instead of burning $200 worth of gas a week. Started in November and should finish next week. 

Next our house just sold and we have 65 days to build or to find and buy another. So it looks like the middle of the summer before I'll be able to get back to the build in any kind of serious way. :(  :(  :( :(  :(

I have ordered another 15 gallons of goo, but that's all the progress I've made.

I have been chiseling away about an hour a day on our 28 and it is coming along nicely. When I get the keel fared in I'll posts some update pic's, but it will be awhile yet.

The close as I have got to doing anything on this project is getting ready to apply plastic to the front of my building barn again. As I said in an earlier post we sold our house. We couldn't find anything we wanted in our price range, so we started building a house in June. We have the outside completed ( mostly ) and are starting on the inside.

 

So there has been NO movement on this 28 for a long while now. Looks like best guess of starting work on her again will be the first of April. 

Anyway I'm not posting to bore you with life issues, but to let some folks that have emailed me wanting to know if I gave up, not yet just being delayed.

Thanks for the update Scott.  I've been wondering what happened to your (boat) project.  Building a house and a boat at the same time now that would be a man-sized project!

Got our boat barn cleaned up and new plastic on the front of the building. I have two more weeks on a remodel job then I will be going full time on my house.

Spent a few hours and a few cold ones in the boat barn just reacquainting myself with my boat. I have decided when I go full time on finishing our house my two days a week off need to be spent on my boat for some R&R and some progress on the build.

Wish be luck, It's just eating me up seeing her just set there!

Bah, you don't need a house, boats are more better.  :P
