I'll be there.  I got my kitchen pass. Wink  It will be nice to focus on deck laying with so much of the old stuff already removed and cleaned up.

I know it's right after Christmas...but the stores will be crowded with all those people returning gifts and bargain hunters...so avoid all that and come out on Saturday, Dec. 27th at 9 AM and let's get some more deck put down.

You know you want to come out.

Actually I do want to come out, but I'll be in K.C. from the 24th through the 28th with my parents and brother.

What weekend are you looking at for the Jan. time frame?  It will be nice to have a good portion of the bow down by the time that the inspectors come out.

Mark A,

Travis and I will be there to help you on Saturday. Let me know what you want us to do and we'll get it done.

Right now the weather looks to be 48 and sunny for the 27th.

My plan is to put more deck down, Rick wants us to focus on the starboard side working aft around the bridge.

We are hitting a slow point now as we have to figure out how to join two boards thru one bolt hole.  I have to pieces of wood at home and will come up with something (i.e. template) to speed it up.

Otherwise, it will be just continuing on using a method we developed for consistency.

See ya Saturday.

Well - last Saturday rained us out but we did get to organize the storage area somewhat.

Anyway, next scheduled work days (weather permitting) will be:

Saturday, Jan. 3rd from 9AM to ?
Saturday, Jan. 10th from 9AM to ?
Saturday, Jan. 24th from 9AM to ?

If for some reason the weather cancels and we can't make it down, I'll post it here by 8 AM and I'll send out an email by 8 AM also.

Otherwise, let's get out there and get some more deck put down.

Mark
A suggestion for joining your boards. A scarf joint, a diagonal cut where the board with the bolt overlaps the other and though not historically correct use epoxy glue.

Thanks Mark...we'll see you then.

Well it was a nice, but windy day yesterday.

My wife, Brandt, Tim and I showed up.

Brandt spent most of his time there pulling bolts that were left in place.  Tim and I prepped most of the supports aft of the sail.  We also got a section of smaller boards put in.

Unfortunately, we discovered that about 1/2 way down the deck, the board spacing switches from 3/4" to 1/2", so we had to abandon that until I can make a 1/2" spacer set.  But we did get several boards put in just forward of the A/C units.

My wife and I will be there on the 10th, I think Tim is coming again.

Who else is coming?

Mark A.,

  I remember you saying that the next two work weekends are Feb. 7th and Feb. 21st.  Is this correct?  I thought that our living histiory event weekend was the 13th through the 15th, but Correy reminded us that it's the 20th through 22nd.  Hopefully, we can get enough deck laid down on the 7th to get the event weekend people traffic away from the AC units.  See you on the 7th.

This will depend on how many people show up on the 7th.  I'm hoping for a good showing since we have almost a month to let people know.

Here are a few photos from the past two work days:

1. Tim Katzung and me prepping supports

2. Tim and me installing deck forward of A/C units

3. The work done over the last two weekends moving forward: Supports prepped (Tim and me), deck installed over induction pipe (Ed, Tim and me), deck forward of A/C units (Tim and me), deck removed, supports prepped and bolts removed (Mark S. Rick, Roger)

4.  Deck starboard, aft of sail...trying to get the walkway routed starboard so we can finish pulling deck...about the time summer and the wasps show up.

Next Work Days are:

Saturday, Feb. 7th @ 9 AM to ?
Saturday, Feb. 21st @ 9 AM to ?
Saturday, March 7th @ 9 AM to ? (this is our Annual Spring Work Day)

Please plan to attend and help us get this deck down.  Thanks,

Mark A.
