Relaxing for once.
It’s been about a year and a half, and yesterday, all the small projects were finished. Is there still more? Yes, but nothing that should stop us now. The good news is that HQ is ready for fun. And being able to focus back on family and boat..ing.
This week we have a very special private event and will be reporting on it after it happens. But thought you may want to see some of the final touches.
Sign made from a scrap of varnished wood and old boat letters, sitting on an old crank jack.
Doors open, stays cool on hot days.
The back wall and trim is done. I used all the wood from the old bottom of a Rivera as trim. The wood panels are from the stacks of wood, split of the band saw.
Lots of small repurposed details. This is a transmission cover plate to cover a seam of the bottom planks
The parts rooms are painted the HQ Green
The Library is not a total mess. That hole in the ceiling is where the squirrels have chewed through. I am leaving that. makes me smile
The new fridge is covered, that wrapping paper was a gift from Bob Kays. We did not know but were bidding against each other on ebay for it. HA. I lost and Won!
The Library, kitchen and storage room of T shirts and Woody Boater stuff
Scream Shoe has a spot, old cleats as hooks and the WW2 binoculars ready to find submarines Wondering what Scream Shoe is? CLICK HERE.
I do appreciate all the kind words, and yes its been all consuming, and not really boats, but restoring, preserving a part of maritime history here has been one of the true joys of my life.
The family is giving me crap that the sign is unreadable. HEY! It fits the vibe, and the entire space is ALL ABOUT VIBE!
