GGs, and more particularly the wooden boat building sub-interest group down the
jetty end of the porch.

I’m curious to know how complete this restoration/rebuild/new build is. 50
percent, 60, 70? I have no idea.

Any estimates? Are the tricky bits done? Plain sailing from here?

No problem Mick... He's two years from being done!

To use a familiar analogy, if Leo was working on an old timber house, 
this would be the progress report:

	site establishment -- complete
	demolition -- complete
	footings -- complete

	floor, wall and roof framing -- almost complete

	material acquisition -- partially complete

	services rough in -- not started
	roof sheeting -- not started
	external wall sheeting -- not started
	floor laying -- not started
	external wall sheeting -- not started
	internal sheeting -- not started
	painting and finishing -- not started
	furniture fit out -- not started

So, it might look like the project is better than 60%, but it is really 
way less than that...
