I went down to the club last night to try to get in a quick sail, and then spend some quality time lying to the mooring, scrubbing the heck out of the extremely grubby deck and cockpit soles on Shrike. There was a very nice wind up, however, and the racing fleet was out, so I wound up doing rather a lot of sailing, and no scrubbing whatever. I discovered that there's at least one other boatbuilder at the club -- I caught him rowing out to his racing boat in a lapstrake Ian Oughtred pram. I ate dinner at the club after I came back in, and discovered that the club has Upper Canada Dark on draught, so I wound up sitting on the porch until 9:30, chatting with the other boatbuilder and the rest of the crew of the boat he raced on.
I made it home in time for the premiere of The L Word, season 2. It's about time they started running it here....
Tomorrow will be an early morning, as they're shutting down Humber Bay at 12:00 for the airshow at the Ex, and not reopening it until 4:00, so I need to set sail soon enough to be out of the bay before then. I'm hoping to get down to Jenco on the way, as I was told that I need a sturdier mooring line to meet club specifications.
Oh, and I started building a tender tonight: a 6'6" Tortoise. I'm on my way out to the porch for the first round of epoxy. Hopefully, she'll be in the water in time for next weekend's messabout.
