I can quit any time I want...I swear

It's been hard sitting in Raleigh studying this weekend while my dad has all the fun. I seem to have some kind of addiction. Anyway, Dad got the seat sides fully filleted and glassed into the soul of the boat. I think everything below the level of the seat tops is done now except the centerboard trunk. The centerboard is now full glassed and the leading edge rope is ready to be installed to protect the board from impacts.

We also managed to find an adapter that lets us hook the orbital sander direct to the shopvac. The clumsy hose is much easier to deal with than epoxy dust and invisible fiberglass slivers. The holes in the bottom of the sander pad suck all the dust away. A winning combo, just try it.

With any luck, I'll come home after my exam on Wednesday and install the centerboard trunk when Dad isn't looking, Muahahah. Meanwhile, its the plank...I mean books for me.
