Don’t you wake up some days in a confused state? If not, I thought the title of this post might help.
“Every morning, Greggery drives his little red Volkswagen to the ugly part of town where they keep the government buildings.
Boy it’s so hard to find a place to park around here!”
But since Zoot Allures is a sailboat and not a little red Volkswagen, lets get on with it. Which I’ve been trying to do but have no time. I only managed to get down on Saturday and attacked the cockpit wood. I sanded it all down with the same technique. (40 then 80 grit with the orbital and mouse sander). That WoodSkin stuff could just as well have been varnish. There was so much wood dust I’m surprised there is any wood left! I was covered head to toe and so was the entire cockpit. It just makes me sad seeing so much wood going to waist. Never again. It took half an hour just to hose and clean the cockpit…. and myself (and I took my first of the year cockpit shower….brrr!). Naturally there are no pictures…. otherwise there would be no camera!
After letting it dry in the sun and having lunch with my neighboring retired geezers (who made a mean steak!), I had fun laying on 3 coats of Owatrol D1.
Another nice note is that the tiller bracket came in and I gave it a dry fit.
And if Kostas didn’t come by I wouldn’t have any idea how I look with a tiller and a mustache! Why the “‘stache”? Well, I went to check out a gig last week and 98% of the men (who god knows weren’t really men) think that Leonidas is still recruiting the 300. Jeeeez! So the first thing I did when I got home was to to shave it off and my shaving thing ran out of batteries! The chicks seem to like it soooooooo………
ps…. Damn you Greggery! I’m one of those “slowly aging very hip young people”! Since it’s my birthday (why, thank you very much), I’ll leave you with this. It’s a long composition and the video isn’t very good…. but I dare you!
“…..Because now at last,
Greggery Peccary’s exciting new invention had made it possible for everyone to find out
How old they were!
What hath God wrought?
Unfortunately, there were some people who simply did not wish to know!”
