Oahu Update

We borrowed our cousins car, twice. We mostly shopped the first time. Finally got the rest of our West Marine order. The second time we took a scenic drive around the east side of the island and then visited the Arizona Memorial. Not a lot left to see of the ship at least when the water is not really clear.

The boat work is progressing, we have finished re-caulking 2/3 of the upper deck where we decided to keep some teak. Only the place around the mizzen mast to go. We are almost ready to paint the non-skid on the lower deck where we removed the teak. I re-sanded it this morning and need one more coat of fairing compound next.

I got the wood to make the bee hive for the folks on Fanning. I borrowed a table saw and cut all the pieces, but plan to assemble it when we get down there. It is a "Kenya Top Bar Hive" and is much simpler to construct than a conventional hive. I hope it works for them. This is what it should look like:
