I am not one to complain about the rain. It is one of those life giving forces that many places in the world either do not get enough of or get too much of. In latter, it can be a life extinguishing event, rather than a nurturing one.
June this year has to be one of the wettest on record for Southern New Jersey. Not only has it put a dent in the tourism trade, but it has slowed work on Flirt to a crawl. It is just too hard to work on a boat when you are constantly getting wet. Even with tarps secured over the cabin and cockpit, her lack of hatches lets in just enough water to make working quite miserable. I also do not know how well epoxy hardens in such cool and damp conditions.
So, I am just going to sit inside today, my day off from work, and contemplate working on my Sprite, I can’t do much else with a downpour going on just inches away.
