What did you do on your summer vacation? (picture heavy post)

My DH spent his this way.

The boat's transom (the back of the boat, where the motor is attached) used to look like this.

After 2 days of horrible, hot, sticky, itchy back and knee breaking work, it looked like this.

The "facilities"

The "toys"

The plan? To fix all of these (holes in the liner of the boat)


And to fill the entire empty transom area (you are actually looking at the back of the inside of the boat)

with 2-3 layers of plywood fit snugly into place like a jigsaw puzzle. A very important jigsaw puzzle, since the motor hangs on this area of the boat. It's a heavy motor. I don't like it when the boat becomes a swimming pool, so it (the transom) has to stay on.

Once the plywood pieces are cut, the next step is to coat them with epoxy to seal them (waterproof) and attach to the rest of the boat. That will have to come after DH works the next 10 days in a row. Yup! His vacation is over and he's back to work. Now doesn't that sound like a fun vacation?
