Zen and the art of sanding

Today it finally happened: I was able to achieve sort of a zen-like trance while I was sanding. While pressing on with the tedious job, I was able to zone out and think of more pleasant things to pass the time. As a result, work seemed to go a lot faster today. And most importantly, enough parts are now prepared that I am going to start drilling and stitching tomorrow. It will be interesting to see the hull take shape. All this prep work should have its benefits. The instruction book says after the final 220-grit sanding, the parts "should need little or no further finishing" after assembly. And that would be just fine with me! Total hours 19.50.
