Sitting here at work, even after taking a hot shower, and then many hours after the fact, I still find my arms to be a little itchy and raw after working on Flirt this morning. I picked up a “flapper wheel” for my right angle grinder and spent a very busy 10 minutes grinding back all the high spots and air bubbles in her stern where I began filling in the hole I created by cutting of her “rail”
The Grinder with wheel made very short work of what would be a nasty, slow, and tedious job. Instead of several hours fruitlessly labouring to smooth the glassfibre, I sent all useless pieces off in a cloud of white dust that covered everything, including myself. Great fun, but not enough time for contemplation, other than the realization that I could accidently do a lot of damage to her stern if I were not totally focused and careful with such a powerful tool.
