Even if it was a little bit of planning for the next step, or a small amount of sanding, or other finishing work.

    That's also my approach and I'm quite satisfied how this works out at the moment.

    The more little jobs you can knock off the easier will be the finishing stages of the project. When I was building my recently launched catamaran I tried to do something on the boat every single day. Sometimes this might have meant just some little part of the boat during the afternoon when I got home from work. Even if it was a little bit of planning for the next step, or a small amount of sanding, or other finishing work. By doing a little bit every day it allowed me to make better progress on the big jobs on those dedicated boat building days. So being able to knock off little jobs during the winter at least keeps you progressing towards the eventual completion of the project.

    Thank you both! It will take until spring before I can put up the bulkheads as I cannot use the shed over the winter. So I'm not going to make that much progress over the next months.

    Gosh, it's good to sit back and watch someone else get on with the work!  The best of luck with SibLing, Frank. (FanShi says that to be SibLim No 2, she has to have bilgeboards and a flush cabin!)  I shall be following your blog.

    Good on you Frank. I do like the SibLim type of hull, and its construction, and I, for one, will follow your progress with interest. I am looking forward to seeing the next exciting moment when the bulkheads are set up. It looks as though you have a pretty good workshop.

    I enjoyed looking at your blog. Thanks for posting, and please keep it going.

    Thanks for the tip, Paul, that was great reading. To better follow Annie's movements up along  the coast, I opened Google Map in another window. Recommended.

    Definitely, Arne! And another 2 hours spent on the other side of the world, "sailing" on my computer (best I can do for the moment :( ).
    Lucky Annie, and well deserved rewards!
