The Dynamic Duo.
Ten days ago now, but still well worth telling. They came back, The Nutters. Supersam and the lovely Marianne once again humbled us with their attendance at the workface. This time I’d remembered to bring the new palm sander and the supper (see High Times), and the wheelhouse shed the rest of her peeling varnish and grey weathered finish. Didn’t really take long either as all of us attacked it simultaneously. Best of all, if you turned the stereo right up you could still just about make out the tunes over the buzz of sanders. Everyone got really excited as the bridge really started to look the part, and on the Sunday we wiped it all down and threw a load of teak oil at the wood and the results- wow. This weekend we’ve continued the work and soon it’ll be time to reassemble all the bits. I can’t wait.
Students, up for anything, Bless ‘em.
