Keel Breaker

Lead chopping with a 3.5 hp Poulan
A chainsaw really does work great for cutting up old keels.  Plus the lead "sawdust" generated from the process will make a great thickener to create a heavy epoxy slurry to help hold the big pieces in place.  The forecast for this weekend is looking better and better, which means we might make some big progress on Creeky.  Fingers crossed!

In the meantime, since we are stuck on this big ol' powerboat and can't afford to run it around the harbor we've been taking the time to go do some little things ashore that we've been missing.  We took Ivy to a farm stand that has a little petting zoo yesterday:  http://pennimanhill.com/  She got to pet a goat, and she was thrilled.  This morning, when we read her little book about goats she kept petting the goat pictures.  Cute kid.
