"It's like déjà vu all over again." Yogi Berra

As baseball's master of the appropriate comment said, "It's like déjà vu all over again." Once again, decks cover the formerly-open hull. Light in the berths is reduced, but the potential for water-tightness considerably improved. 

Much sanding is happening today, and the cabin top is underway -- pictures of those parts will follow.

Here are Robbie and Trevor working on the side decks. Fore and aft areas are glassed.
All but side decks glassed in this one. Featured on the left is the vacuum that starred in the last post!
 At this point, things seem to be going really quickly. I think this is partly because everything that is being done is being done for the final time. We don't have more decks to add after this. Today Robbie and Trevor are working on the final cabin top. We need to get glass cut for it -- but only once.  This is too wonderful a project to use phrases like "light at the end of the tunnel" for -- it's a happy build for us, and it's all light. (In fact, as you can see in the bottom picture, it's actually happening in a nice, light tunnel!) But we are getting a sense of the arc of the project aiming towards completion now.

Of course it's easy to ruminate philosophically at this point and ignore the reality of ten coats of paint (four inside, six out) to go! 

Déjà vu all over again indeed.
