Look carefully where I keep my ladder. It’s there because Flirt overhangs the fence and it is easier to climb up from inside the backyard than to walk around and go up over the side. Keeping this in mind, remember I have been working on the Lazerette. I wish I had.
Once the deck was off, I could clean it all out, sand it all down, and get rid of 50 some years of detritus. You can also see where I filled in the holes for the scary outboard mount and what used to be the thruhull for the bilge pump.
Once that was all done, I got out my nasty epoxy encrusted Scissors and cut up some slinky CarbonFibre and went to work with more epoxy. I cannot say enough about Fiskers scissors. I have left these out on the deck, they have been covered in epoxy for years, they have spent all this time cutting and trimming CF and they still hold a sharp edge.
I think now you can see the issue with me getting down off of Flirt. I am not 18 anymore, I cannot simply do a flying leap 7 feet to the ground without worry (I probably could, but I am going to chance it). So I had to do the most inglorious slither over the side and down to the grass anybody has ever had the displeasure to witness. I do apologize to the neighbors.
