Can't really think of much more to say right now. Pic says it all.
We actually do know how you feel. When we were building Peace, we had to destroy our first build of lower hulls when we discovered that the ply we were using was all defectively manufactured even though it was stamped as best quality marine ply. It was delaminating in the shed. We had to cut it up and start all over again. So we know how you feel.
The cure for how you feel is to clean up the mess and start again. Ruthie Wharram phoned us and gave us the courage to do that for Peace and it did work for us. She just told us how it was for "Jimmy" and how they kept having to struggle through all sorts of problems.
When we looked at your shed, it looked pretty strong to us, but now you can look very close and see where it needs to be stronger. Piero had his shed collapse once with the boat inside and he had to make changes to the shape. His used to be shaped like a church and is now even more pointy topped. It has given him no trouble since. The recent snow you had up there was wet and extra heavy, but that is part of what you need to expect in NE.
How about you folks come down for a warmer complete with mulled wine and lots of hugs? We are usually in shorts and tee shirts, bare feet, and folks go swimming with fishing gear all the time. When you finish your boat you can cruise these waters. COURAGE!
Love, Ann and Nev
