But with that, the problems were not over, as it continued to rain, and in addition, it stormed much of the time. For a while, I was down by the boat every night because it was storming, and the creek had gone so far over its banks that it was close to the boat flowing off the bucks (the water was at some point higher than the picture on the right). It was nerve-wracking!
But it got better, and when spring finally came, it got so hot and dry that the boat was about to fall apart - it was as dry as a biscuit.
But I did get a few things done, the boat didn't get into the water before in June, and despite the drought, there was only a microscopic leak, and it completely closed itself after approx. 30 minutes.
