Well, after spending some time in getting some 3D models put together (which will continue), getting the garage organized, bilding a garden shed, fulfilling some social obligations, and performing some badly needed maintenance on our sloop, full time building on the Westsail continues for the rest of the year (and beyond). We decided, this fall, we will put the sloop up in dry storage for a year as we decide what to do with her. Some more maintenance needs to be done, but that can wait till next summer. Next item up is to begin the glassing the floor timbers for the forward salon. This requires a special order of Baltek fillet strips, some Baltek foam, some biaxial glass and a compound miter saw. Of course CAD and 3D modeling will always continue...
