From a Wreck of a Deck

December 29, 2016

 

 

Now that it's complete, I have thoughts. We have thoughts. But I think an emoji here is worth words on how refurbishing a teak deck is explained: 😳

-

I'll leave all the technical 'how we did it', 'required tools and materials', and the 'step-by-step technical explanation' for another post (which Joel can spearhead). For thus segment, I'll just cover the emotional outcomes of refurbishing an entire teak deck.

-

1. It's a test of patience.

2. It's a lesson in teamwork.

3. It'll require a little bit of letting go.

4. It takes some improvising.

5. Happy hour beers are a must do.

The patience is from the work. It's tedious, monotonous, requires concentration and is slow going. Seeing the fruits of your labor requires patience.

I like working as a team. I like the encouragement, the support, the extra set of hands, the companionship. If you're more of a sole proprietor, be prepared for Lesson # 3.

Sometimes you have to let go and let be. This job demands attention to detail. It's a perfectionist pergatory.

-

You'll improvise. With everything from how a tool is supposed to be used to when to have lunch.

-

Find a local watering hole. In all of your sweaty, sawdusted, stink enjoy your end of day beers.

Best breezes and serene seas, pirates
