Progress on the jPod has been slow since summer & it is tempting to be depressed about that. The only difference is that I am trying to keep up with teaching in addition to daily life. Yet, I am happy to have a job even if it distracts me from the build.
A while back, Senior Management began the doors for the jPod. Then life, for us, got really chaotic and the doors
where neglected. Given the months that have passed since our move & my surgery, the original doors warped. Recently, I have not focused on building parts for the jPod but rather disassembling the doors so I can flatten them out & fix them. This has taken some time but I think it is almost there. I have also reworked my original design to keep them more rigid. Right now, I am waiting for the glue to dry on the internal skeleton on the right door. If it works, as I hope, then I will do the left door. However, I will not work on the left door until I am certain the right one is functional. I am tired to delicately disassembling parts.

While working on the door process, I insulated the inside bulkhead between the galley & the cabin. I have also purchased Helmsman’s finish that I hope to spray on the inside walls as a sealer & finish once it is above 60 degrees outside.
