The suspense has not exactly been killing me but I am feeling the effects of several flesh wounds. As I reported earlier there is an auction for impounded boats at the local marina. At this point I am intending to attend. There may not be two nickles in my pocket to rub together. Isn’t poverty wonderful?
I have continued to do research on the Columbia 22 and I like what I have found. Many thanks to the Columbia 22 group on Yahoo! for answering my questions. This process is a little like running an inlet on the Jersey Shore. There’s nothing like local knowledge.
Should I actually end up with a sailboat out of this I will be blogging and possibly doing a video podcast about the restoration and general commisioning of the boat. If not then I may go back to my original thought of building a sailboat with similar media coverage. The idea of putting my mug in front of a camera in a room full of dangerous tools or on a boat with lots of unforgiving water underneath is kind of scary.
My postings have been delayed a bit this week because of server problems. Both of my sites were down for a day. They are once again afloat on the information super tideway so keep on dropping by for a gam.
