Someone Put a Hex on my Skiff!
OK… with all of the weather challenges, newbie mistakes, budget constraints, etc…. One might read this and wonder if that is true. But seriously….. no joke…. Literally…. Someone put a HEX on my boat! Last night CW and I went out to the garage to start drilling holes in the transom and this is what I found hanging out in the flotation foam of the bow.
Being that I live not a quarter mile from the banks of the Ohio River I suppose this is no grand shock but it still made me smile…. Even though it might technically be a Hex (assuming my absolutely crappy entomology skills identifying this bug correctly as a Hexagenia Limbata) I will instead consider it a good omen and a harbinger of things to come.
Now if only I can finish this boat before the first snow. Ughhhh!
