Busy Bees

It’s been a busy time.  Not only has Boyd run all sorts of electrical wires throughout this old boat…

...note not only the plumbing, but the wonderful electrical outlet in this under-the-sink bathroom cabinet

….and installed new and wonderful plumbing…

...cool plumbing stuff, eh!?

...new shower sump...

…a new shower sump…

…but he is now installing a new wall for the kitchen (fine, call it a galley if you must!), and that new wall is turning into quite a project. We saw a product online that was a tube of epoxy that mixes itself as it is extruded (using a standard caulking gun).   Well, let me tell ya’, don’t believe everything you see on the web. The epoxy was so thick that it had problems getting through the extruder, broke two caulking guns, and ultimately had to be manually dug out of the tube and mixed in an old margarine tub.  So much for new and improved products!

When your caulking gun quits, your only course a action is to apply the goop to the wall by hand (or stick, in the case).

To be blunt, this stuff is terrible.  The only purpose I can think of for this product is if you want an excuse to buy new caulking gun (it will break your old one).

And the wall finally went up, with much gnashing of teeth!
