OMG it has been quite a winter here in Maine. Instead of working on the boat I spent all my time shoveling, snow blowing and hauling firewood. I am so thankful we got the boat inside before the onslaught began.
The storms just kept coming and it was cold. I can’t remember a winter when I heard of so many houses in our area with frozen and burst pipes.
So glad we avoided that misfortune.
I did make a little progress on the boat but even with the propane heater it was just too frigging cold. Here’s a look at some of the work.
Sliding Barn Door for the Head
If any of you have ever looked to purchase sliding barn door hardware you know how expensive it is so I decided to try to make my own. We went to Tractor Supply and found some shackles or pulleys that could be taken apart with the size wheels I wanted. I also bought some flat rolled steel for the straps and the rail.
The door itself we purchased years ago at some recycled building materials store. It’s a solid Yellow pine door that fit just right.
Here’s a look at the door in action.
I also got some finish paint on the head walls. The door is removed to do that.
Hang to the riggins,
