Back on course after a short vacation and back injury.

I fabricated an aluminum radio tray and installed the installed the new waterway planks. Regarding the radio tray, this design is much easier to move and and secure.

I am not too proud to admit a mistake. Earlier today, I removed the radio tray. It was not as "user friendly" as I had hoped. Now I'm back to the drawing board. I also removed the water way planks, which were clearly to narrow.

I was happy to learn that there are at least two other Shamrock V J boats, and an Endeavor J Boat in Riverside. I believe they are all dry-docked at the moment; however, it is my understanding that at least one of the Shamrock V J Boats will be ready for the summer. Woo Hoo!!!!

No pictures today. I am grieving the loss of my table saw this evening. Not only did it commit suicide, but it decided to cremate itself.

Well… time to hit Craigslist and look for a used 10 inch table saw.

I have been spending quite a bit of time staring at the boat and visualizing what I want to do with the radio board. I think I put something together that I can live with. Maybe... We'll see...

I was inspired to work on the above deck houses this evening. They still need the joints and edges sanded down.

I’m continuing to work with Milton Thrasher to address a few issues related to the size of several parts, and missing parts..
