While everyone was defending our conspicuous passion yesterday, I turned off all my cell stuff and went to conspicuously work on stripping 30 years of paint off all the window trim on Sweet Pea. Wow, what a difference and wow what a pain in the ..well every part of my old body.
I must add that whoever decided to paint over that wood should be conspicuously shot! Ya, I said it. BTW, its a figure of speech. All you PC people just read it through that lens please. Anyway. There are still some small grains of white green and almond paint in there. and after two days of ice picks and stripper. Its still there so I am going to the varnish phase and then paint over some of it in a blended color and pinstripe brush.
The rear cabin windows are a bit more of an issue and where repaired at some point and a lighter wood. UGH, so I am gonna have to play with some stain.
I have to add this. Even though I know what I am about to say sounds rather snooty. EVERYONE SHOULD OWN A MARINA! Working on your boat is sooooo, soooo much easier. Having the right tools, and parts right there, in an environment that can be trashed. Perfection. And since I spent all my money on it, I have to do all my own work anyway. I am going to go on strike though. I pay myself nothing. I am interning for myself. Did someone mention donuts?
Confused? Read yesterdays story! Have fun!
