Skeedeen Phase 7-8


Jason was back this morning with the completed winter cover, which we installed successfully and with ease.  The fit was excellent, though–not seen here–Jason insisted on taking back the forward section so he could install zippers on each of the slots around the bow pulpit bases, which was a nice addition and really brought together the forward end of the cover.  (It’s done and I didn’t photograph that stage.  We’ll see detail on that later, once the boat is outdoors and fully buttoned up).

Now that the cover was complete, I had to remove the aft section, as well as move two of the frame braces, to leave enough room for the mechanic to come do his engine maintenance and winterizing chores in a couple days, after which I could complete the cover for good.

Total time billed on this job today:  1.75 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  Clear, 25°.  Forecast for the day:  Sunny, 47°
