Day 158 – 20 September 2009 – What’s Next?


We are approaching a milestone.  The “Whiskey Plank” is the last plank to complete a ship’s hull and traditionally an occasion for a celebration.  It will not be whiskey in our case because I do not drink, but a celebration is in order for this turning point.  We will soon be turning her over to work on the inside.
