Paint and Play

Today we started the day picking up the last of the lumber needed for Jacobs Eagle Scout Project. He is constructions boat racks to store the Sabot sailboats in the sailboat house at Fairmont Park. Today’s activities required cutting lumber and painting. Next project workk day will be construction. As for the cutting and painting the pictures are below?

Painting the boards in the rack after they have been cut and had screws put in the ends.

The long boards

So what do you do when you are finished painting? Go sailing. Jacob has gone with sailing with me before. Today Lanny, a friend, talked Eric into going out with Jacob to teach him. Jacob sailed the boat and Eric gave instructions.

Eric is not really into sailing, so he returned to shore. Jacob went out on his own. He almost went over once when he was not sitting on the upwind side of the boat and a gust of wind came. He quickly moved.

We had a great afternoon. It was then home to turn some boards and paint the other side.
