I spoke to my other neighbor today. She said she heard the explosion as well, in fact she said she felt it as well.
Its been a little de-motivating to be honest, but on the upside its pretty much agreed that I was very lucky not to have been injured. I agree.
I decided to console myself with setting out the instrument and control panel and the steering pump. This is the rough draft.
I have also drawn up and sent of for pressing the lids that will cover the lockers on the stern. Hopefully I will get them next week. I have a canopy maker coming over on Monday to start templating for the stern pram hood.
Finally the knee. I've had a long term injury to my knee from a torn cruciate ligament. For 20 + years it has been a dull ache, which from time to time flares up especially after skiing.
Well apart form having a sizable dent in my knee cap and a very large bruise my knee actually feels better. So hopefully when the bruising and swelling goes down it might be mended. Fingers crossed.
