Down a new path...

My brother quit his job. Yep. After almost 10 years working for corporate America he balled up and quit. You can check out his blog by clicking here or the button on the left. He does own a small business designing and hosting web sites among other things and I just have this feeling that it’s going to work out for him.

I’m hoping that this blog will eventually be hosted by his company under my own domain name.

Then you’ll see some sizzle…

It's been a few days...

I can't believe how busy I've been lately. I figured that once the holidays were past and I was back to work I would have some down time. Wonder when that starts??
I'm trying to get the kayak finished up in time to paddle among the manatees over at Crystal River. I think I still have a few weeks before they move back out into open water.
I've done most of the trim work on the kayak...got the hatch finished, the tie-down straps are ready to mount and the final coat of epoxy went on the topside tonight.
Next step is painting the hull. I bought the paint already (at $36.00 per quart!!), a nice deep green and I may get the first coat on Thursday night if the weather holds. It can't be applied lower than 50°F and the fumes are highly toxic to breath so I'll need to do it outside. Three coats. Then Urethane for the topside, install the tie-down straps and it's done!!
I'll post up some pictures when it's done...
