The mold for Makin Memories new swim platform has begun.Hurricane Irma put the brakes on the process due to the craftsman’s having to evacuate. We dodged a bullet and Doug is back to work and ready to begin. The last swim platform was rotten at its core and we began to notice extreme flex at the port end. The new platform is slightly larger (deeper by 3 and 1/4 inches) and will be raised three inches higher on the transom. I added a couple photos to demonstrate the process.
To Sail beyond the sunset
Come, my friends,
‘Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
