Essentially the boat is finished. I do a few final jobs.
There are only two small jobs, make lid for sea water hole thing and weld nut onto center plate winch so I can use a ratchet to raise and lower it quickly. These are Kiyuna san jobs but I cannot find him. No worries, the weather has been grim, er by Okinawan standards. Launch is imminent.
I drive up to Ogimi to wallow in Irises. There are acres of them.
