August West 1
First thing in the morning, while it was still calm, I removed the tarp from the boat, preparing her for moving indoors soon. A few weeks earlier, during another warm spell, I’d taken the time to dig out the boat from snowbanks and move her to location near the shop; though we hadn’t had any more snow since then, and in fact the melt had continued, it had been nice knowing that the boat was nearby and ready for me whenever I was.
Much later in the day, after I’d wrapped up several hours of work on another project, which included getting the second shop bay ready to accept August West, I moved her indoors, where after removing some straps and tie-downs, my first order of business was to lift the mast off the deck to get it out of the way for the project. For now, I rested the mast on some sawhorses in the shop; I had a little mast-related work on this project as well.
