No More Sliding Into The Hulls! (MJ Sailing - Ep 252)

We're back to work on our boat this week, and making progress in a very important area - the steps!!

** If you want to help out with Fish For a Cure, click here!! ***

For the last 18 months, each time we've wanted to get from the bridge deck into the hull we've had to slide down the chamfered panel. But, that stops now as Matt begins working on our three sets of stairs leading into both hulls.

I also revisit an update where I show the work I've been able to accomplish lately with fairing, and how I've fallen in love with the 3M lightweight body filler as it also works as a guide coat, telling me where I need to add more filler.

Lastly, we begin to install PVC pipes to eventually run conduit through. Not really our first choice in products, but sometimes you just can't get the supplies you were really hoping for and just need to move forward instead.

We hope you enjoy!

Much love from Annapolis!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
