Happy 5th of July! Also, the Unofficial Start of Summer!

Yesterday was a beautiful day. Perfect for celebrating the Red, White, & Brew Blue.

Finally got around to my heather ale. I made my own recipe this time around.  My first time doing so, but I couldn't find any recipe that matched what I was looking for.  I should know by the 16th whether or not I've poisoned us. If it does turn out well, I'll be sure to share what I've learned in this process!

The boat thing is going well.  I've got 3 1/2 bulkheads cut out. 

We also built this great little work surface today- 3'x8'.  I've been working on an IKEA desk for the majority of this project, and I'm starting to really feel it in my lower back.

I now officially have all of the plywood needed to build Rio. I'm more than excited about that fact- knowing that someday a little ship will rise from those plywood sheets.


  1. Yay! Lotza real live parts, and finally loads of sunshine ahead. Bring on the buildies!

    1. Indeed! Checked the forecast and NO RAIN IN SIGHT! Hope you're able to get out on the water!
