One year old today

According to my records, it's a year today that my plywood arrived and I scribed my first mark on what is to become Johanna.

The time seems to have flown past, and I've learned an awful lot in that period. If I were to start again, I'd probably do some things differently; but that's what comes from experience.

Unfortunately work has stalled for a while whilst I recuperate from some surgery, but I'm looking forward to the warm weather and hopefully some pretty rapid building progress in the months to come.

The plan is to finish and paint the interior, get the decks on, sheath the hull and then finish off the cabin top. Hopefully all that will be done during the summer months. Time will tell....

Johanna, one year on.
