I have an intern who comes out once a week to work alongside of me. He's learning some techniques and approaches. He's at the point where his contribution of effort balances out the extra time that I have to put in for instruction and guidance. Here he is working my new, my 4th, Porter-Cable sander (remember my mention of my 3rd sander failing while working on the kayak?) Its nice to have the company.
Decks glued back together, installed, sanded, and first coat of varnish. Now I just need a couple more coats of varnish on the trim, seats, and thwarts. I had to make a new stern seat, I'l have to transfer webbing to the new seat. There is some fiberglass repair work to do where the has been a lot of wear and tear. I'll have it all back together tomorrow.
