    Yeah I've got a couple more weeks in California then I go back home for the rest of the year. Hoping it gets warm enough to glass soon.

    It's getting close to glassing weather (I hope!). I need to start some glassing myself. Then onto the rigging.
    Where in California are you??

    Tyvek suits aren't too horribly priced on Amazon. I bought a 5-Pack and didn't itch one bit :)

    Yup I have about 20 of them. I cut out the bulkhead and found a nice surprise. Some kind of animal had been living in there. All kinds of nesting crap cactus skulls ect.... Took me 3 hours just to get it all cleaned out. Put a damper on getting the stringers out as I had planned.
