I weighed the Squall this weekend (Cetacea Page 67) and she lost another 14 pounds. 207 total pounds (should be about 125 pounds).

Total loss since 2002 is 277 pounds.

Hopefully this table makes it in one piece

She might benefit from a vacation to Phoenix, AZ. Might speed up the dry time.

Jim--Many thanks for collecting this data and sharing it. In a world where the past was yesterday and the future is the next ten minutes, it is nice to see that someone is working on something over a period of years and keeping some records.

JimH -

Hoping the drying will continue.

Several thoughts to ponder:

1. Phoenix is a great idea by 17 bodega, but Alaska Airlines wants too much for oversized/overweight luggage.

2. I thought of a friend's living room as he keeps it warmer than my garage, use the Squall as a coffee table as she dries, but would be too tough to get her up to his 3rd floor.

3. My wife is wondering when she'll get more room in the garage. Answer: Never! She already has a complete sewing room.

4. Hope the Squall gets lighter faster than I get older. I still have to replace foam, fill holes, gelcoat, etc. I have already varnished the two seats (7 coats each, 11 years ago).

Hopefully this table makes it in one piece

Perhaps she has reached equilibrium in the Juneau climate. Is it time to seal her up again and enjoy some sailing?

I think your right about the water loss,,its time to change the humidity around the boat in the garage

jimp--Great job on keeping records. Are there any pictures? I found some pictures, but was wondering what it looks like today.

picflight--No new pictures. Still looks the same up against the wall sitting on her transom with the bottom to the wall. Loaded with old dropcloths, sleeping bags, box fan, Costco sized boxes of Ziploc bags, and assorted other things that need a temporary home.

The total weight lost in the Squall since 2002, or 13-years, is [292-lbs]. If we assume the lost weight was all from water, this suggests that the volume of water that has been evaporated out of the foam in the hull was

292-lbs x 1-gallon-water/8.34-lbs = 35-gallons-water
