    Well, thank you both for the kind words and encouragement.  It is good that the end is in sight with the interior.

    And thank you, David, for saying that I'd posted.  I forgot to mention it on the website.  There just seems to be so much going on, recently, I can't remember all the things I should be doing!

    I have to agree, Ueli, this is looking – what's the correct technical expression? The bees knees? The cat's pyjamas? Or supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? Whatever, it doesn't look like Annie's been idling her time away down in Nelson.

    Latest blog entry, 25th November, here.

    hi annie

    congratulations – you're doing great!
    i know, you won't run out of work in the next couple of weeks – but with your last galley pictures SibLim looks almost ready to move in…

    Now that would be a fine thing, indeed. You might have to hang around NZ - or come back again, Peter, but I don't think that would be a hardship.  You're in a fine cruising ground here, both locally and a thousand miles or so further afield!

    It does seem as if the long job of building the accommodation is getting towards its end. I continue to be impressed with the way you are creating a style that is very definitely "you", and at the same time is practical and seawoman-like. I do hope I'm going to get the chance to see this boat launched and sailing.

    Here here!  Annie, you attention detail is amazing, I hope that at some point I can cruise in company with SibLim and you.

    So do I, David, so do I.  Indeed, I hope I'll get the chance to see this boat launched and sailing!

    Thanks, Anthony.  There does seem to be a very faint glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel!

    Annie - wonderful to see that counter top go on, and fitting so neatly.  A real milestone. As Churchill might have said "The beginning of the end".

    David Thatcher wrote: Sometimes it takes a while to work out just what the best solutions might be, and to sort out just exactly what is needed in the galley. So, there is no real need to figure it all out at once. Once you spend time using the galley, and sitting looking at the area with your little fireplace pouring out warmth, inspiration will come. It took me three years to decide where was the best location for the new head compartment in Footprints. And after 8 years our new house is almost finished apart from waiting for inspiration as to how to finish off the pergolas. I only built the deck and pergolas last year, just a mere 6 years after saying I would have them done by Christmas, ( I never said which Christmas, and one should never rush the creative design process!). Of course building a boat has distracted me from this a bit, so it may be while.
    David, when this boat is launched, I want her to be finished.  I mean completely finished.  I am not a projects person; I don't want to carry on fiddling and altering and 'improving' the boat.  I want the tools to stay in the locker as long as possible.  I loathe living in an unfinished boat - I've done it too often  - and being surrounded by mess and dust.  I don't mind maintaining the outside, but I sincerely hope that I'll have to do hardly anything to the interior for at least 10 years!

    I am relying on four decades of living on boats to point me in the right direction and ensure I make the right decisions.  And if I don't, I'll live with them until I convince myself that I did!

    I think you like to have practical jobs on hand, but if I feel inspired to do anything creative, I hope it will be writing.  I may have to build myself another dinghy, sooner or later, but I think that will be the extent of any future woodwork on boats.
