Two Gondolas Painted, One to Go, and MAN! Am I Sore!

We got the first gondola striped and splashed bright and early.

Sarah showed up with gondola number two just in time to throw it on the trailer after gondola number one was wet again.

The sanding, scraping, and painting went much more quickly the second time around, but I discovered all sorts of muscles that were sore today.

There's nothing like aches and pains to remind you that you're not invincible anymore.

Sarah was awesome, making the whole "hey, let's paint a boat in one day" thing possible.

Thanks Sarah - you rock!

Here are a few shots from the day:

Gondola number one on the way back to dock with fresh paint. Not too terrible of a shot, considering the sun was in the exact wrong place.

As you can see from this shot, today was windy. Really windy.

The ferro reflects the illuminated sky, with the lights from lakefront homes in the background.

Tomorrow, we'll make a run at gondola number three.

I've gotta get some sleep!
