Monday was a fairly typical morning. I had gotten up a little earlier than usual. While the kids were still asleep, I had a couple of cups of coffee and went into the garage to work on the boat. I mixed a minuscule amount of epoxy, because there wasn't much left to be done.
Using a Q-Tip, I swabbed the inside of the holes I had drilled in the frames. This added the second and final coat of epoxy to water-seal the bare wood. Then, I left it to cure for 24 hours.
Tuesday morning started off with a similar pace... slow, and quiet. I sat in the boat with my 2nd cup of coffee, and routed the wires back through the water-sealed holes & back into the kwik-clips.
I put the leads back on the battery. Then I put the lid back on the battery box, and strapped it down. I bumped the bilge pump switch over to manual, just to make sure it was working.
And just like that, all in a whisper...
The boat was done.
