Bock Marine #3
I had a frustrating day. The weather was very nice and I decided to attack the broken hinges on the front hatch. Ken (of Bock Marine) and I had tried to pop rivet them back together. This had been the original fastner. We had great difficulty getting them to hold so I decided to put in hex head cap screws. Regular screws would not work as the heads were too big to go into the recess. After a trip to the hardware store I got everything together and fixed the hinges. I then tried to spread bedding compound on the hatch so that I could finish the job. After getting everything cleaned and ready I opened the tube of bedding compound only to find that it was hardened and I could not use it. Oh well, another day.
