We got Sweet Pea up on the rails the other day to repair a leak. I will add that this was one of the first up on the rail jobs I tried without George, who makes it look so so easy. 2 hrs later and 4 tries, I had to call in the expert, and of course he made it look so simple. Ugh, anyway, I guess I can look at it in this way. I am in my 60’s and still learning stuff like a kid, and that part of it all is wonderful. I accept it and all part of the journey. How many people can say they know how to run a marine railway? Sadly more would say who cares, but the jokes on all of you laughers when there is a emergency need at a hot babes convention and someone needs to put a boat up on a railway.. Ya, who’s sexy now? Okay okay I digress into my morning bitterness. Today I am exploring a different color study for Sweet Pea. The idea of havering a beautiful Trawler with such wonderful lines and its all painted white drives me nuts. But it is a look, so today with the help of Photoshop, I did some sketches. Oh! I did some sketches.
Of course none of this matters since the Boatress has veto power and could say, Nope. and then I sit.. wondering why I am alive and tormented by my obsession to wonder in an ocean of subjectivity… At least I have a boat to float around in.. And Kirby paints to keep me moving. GO KIRBY, GO KIRBY!
