I've been a bit busy and distracted by life outside boatbuilding, recently, which is why I haven't had chance to blog. Frustratingly I've also been slowed down by having done something to my (other) knee, which makes if painful to walk and excruciating to kneel on. Ibuprofen is helping. I've even rested it, but the psychological trauma ensuing from that is probably worse than the physical trauma from using it!!
