Those of you who are bored with rudder stuff, please switch channels.
Mixing the epoxy is highly technical. It is a 100:1 mix, which means 100 parts epoxy to 1 part hardener. Great precision is needed to get the mix right.
Anyway, it is the most beautiful day as I mix the magic lotion and smear it over the rudder with a sashimi tray, which does the job very well.
While the epoxy cures, I go to find the Black headed Munia again.
I go home for the best lunch I have ever had.
Spring is here and suddenly there are butterflies everywhere.
Throughout the afternoon I gently work on the mast. I smell the sea. I smell the wind. Sailing season is coming in.
