Beams, weather, distractions

Weather's been unseasonally cold for most of the Seattle area this year, and I haven't been able to summon the willpower to work outside in my boat tent in 30-40 degree weather. So, no major updates, folks.

Yes, I did get my beams out of "jail". Ian does a nice job of packing them:

I even have my very own customs inspection sticker:

I'm scheduled for a small surgery (tonsillectomy) in a couple of weeks. By the time I recover, we should be in mid-February and I'm expecting the weather to warm up enough by then that I can start making some progress again. Yeah, I know - excuses, excuses.

One of these days I need to post a picture of my floats...this is their second winter sitting outside, and while structurally they're fine, they look quite forlorn: dirty, surrounded by tall grass, huge weeds growing between the floats, etc. The paint is holding up well, sometimes I'll wash off a small section just to see the shine come back. :-)
