the navigator gets attention between squalls

What a truly marvelous thing a heat gun is. Such power to be able to shoot heat at a boat in an arctic blast, or warm the bottom of a tub of epoxy in your hand and burn the hairs off your fingers before they feel warm at all.
And to think that the electricity that powers the heat gun was stolen quietly from the sun (such as it is) and stored in our great big batteries.
But I'm awfully glad I don't have large areas to coat with epoxy because that would just be an exercise in frustration. If it comes to that I will be better to put thoughts of the boat away for the duration of the cold weather and start building the wooden spars instead. But there is still plenty to do before it comes to that, and plenty of totally unrelated things to do as well....
