OK, it's not as bad as it sounds. Trouble is my 3-year-old Australian Shepard. Having her on the stern deck was an improvement from her running from port to starboard and back to port. Once she got up where she could survey the lake she settled right down.
I should have spent the day in the shop working on the spars and rigging, but you just don't get many days like this in January. The sun felt good and was too hot for anything more than a t-shirt.
Once I got back and washed down the boat, I fitted the mast. All is well, but I do need to enlarge the hole in the floor boards where the mast passes though. I needed to pull the boat out of the shop to do that anyway. Right?
