I spend the first part of the morning in my second home – the Dentist. Yep more root canal stuff. I ask Mohawk Mori sensei how many visits he thinks this will take. ” Neil san, this will take months.” So be it. My visit costs me 880 yen.
Back to the boatyard to continue the good work. I am now enabled and have made a lot of progress on the more cosmetic side of the restoration.
This is so much fun. I am making visible progress and the finishing line is in sight. The Becher’s Brook of electrics still has to be jumped but I am feeling confident.
All the running rigging, like halyards and sheets, is black after years of Okinawan mildew. I put them through the washing machine.
I buy more sunscreen.
