Sacrifice my health...? No Senior! But my wife tells me the same. She think I´m sacrificing my health as well. I try to tell her I am relaxing working on the boat. I feel fine when I sit on the chair beside the hull, thinking of all the nice days we gonna spend out in the sea. Fishing.... Sleeping.....

I´ve got home from the hospital day before yesterday. They ( the pump mechanics) stopped the heart and restarted it again. And now everything works as normal.

Today I´ve gave the pulpit the fifth layer. And 25 minutes later there was a fly sitting in the vernish. No matter at all, I have to grind a little, and put on the last two layers. They should be semi matt or silky matt.

Tomorrow I will start cleaning engine room and fuel tank compartment.

Working forwards by small steps. It´s far too hot for working on the Trojan. Average temp here in Norway, in summertime is usually between 15 and 20 degrees C. But thees days temp have passed 35. And that´s too hot for working. So yesterday and today I have finished the two last layers with varnish, silky smooth and nice. Totally there is nine layers on the pulpit.
