Construction update: flipping of scow delayed
Today was to be the day for flipping the scow sections. However it is cold and damp here (high this morning of 36F or 2 C) and we are leaving the scow unflipped in the hopes some warmer weather will reappear at least for a little while and allow some of the tar-like sealant time to fully cure. May even try heating the 4 sections up under the tarp with a heat gun. If winter is upon us (I doubt it) we may be done on construction for this year. All the basic construction and underside are now done, just needs to be flipped over, holes drilled for bolting the 4 sections together, then decking and finally superstructure for the tent. So we are probably 75-80% done the construction phase.
