Guess what ?

Floors !!!

I know. It would probably be easier to keep building but its not the point really is it.

Little job done

Ok I have to admit defeat on getting so much done this month, the floors
I believe will be back from galvanizing tomorrow or the day after but
it may be next week before we scrape the funds together to pay for them.
I set up the keel and stuff in the shed again today and measured and cut
the galvanized bar into lengths ready for the ends to be treaded.

Still here

I've been looking at the blog everyday but had nothing to write until now.
Got a phone call this morning form the forge making the floors and it seems
they are going for galvanizing tomorrow. Bit behind schedule but getting
somewhere never the less. The only other thing thats been done is buying
the galvanized bar that will make up the long deadwood bolts, I need to set
the keel etc up in the shed again tomorrow and figure out what lenghts I
need to cut them and then they'll be sent somewhere to have the ends treaded.

At a stand still

Things have come to a complete stop at the moment due to the floors not
being ready, I was expecting to have them yesterday but now it will be
next Friday and the soonest, There just isn't much else I can do.
That said, once we get the floors things can really kick off and I'm setting
a goal of having the keel and major timbers bolted in place before end of
the month. But for now I'm sitting and waiting
