    Well, the rudder didn't go on, on Saturday as the box from Jamestown distributors didn't get here with the bolts. However, the trailing edge of the rudder is a lot more fair, now! Aslo, turns out that the bushing material that I use on the Wildcat will work as a bushing for the bottom of the Piper rudder. WIN.

    Little bits of progress...

    turns out that church has an 1850 watt portable generator I can use for as long as I want. It hasn't run in a LONG time, so I'll get a spark plug and change out the gas, but if it starts, I now have electricity at the boat. This is HUGE.

    The cockpit shelves got glue'd and screwed back together and the second coat of paint is drying as I write this.

    and the teal Ottertex...PVC-impregnated fabric for the cockpit cover, arrived yesterday along with outdoor thread. It's beautiful stuff, not breathable like sunbrella, but 1/3rd the price and there will be a large opening at the back of the cover for ventilation, anyway.

    The crack in the aft seat gets glu'ed tonight.
