Week 35: Invitation to a party

It is time to celebrate. Gypsy is back in her slip and while there still is lots of work to be done we have passed a milestone. We want to invite all of you who have been following our adventure to come and celebrate with us. If you are in Portland Sunday October 4th please drop by. The time is from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. The place is Rose City Yacht Club (RCYC). It’s a potluck party and BYOB so drop by and see Gypsy and have a good time. We will have food in the clubhouse and tours of Gypsy.

So besides thinking about throwing a party, here’s what we’ve been up to inside the boat.  This week we started working on building the cabin furniture. To make sure it will fit, we are making templates that we will use to cut out the plywood parts. Then we can epoxy in the new pieces.

The templates form the seat and will be used to cut out the plywood.

  1. Hi seagoers,Thanks for the invitation!  I’ll be there in spirit with you.  The VSO opening concerts are that weekend so I won’t be able to join you.  Raincheck please?  Love what you’re doing!  Mom
