Hi Pat and everyone . It has been a while since I last posted. If you will remember I started a project called "The Sea Witch -A 1995 dodge b1500 cargo van. work on her still continues to this day but I wanted to update my blog with some new pix. Since we last spoke I have renamed her the "Whydah" in tribute to the famous pirate ship of Captain "Black Sam Bellamy" she was sunk off of Cape Cod in 1777 only 2 of her crew of 146 survived. in recent years she has been discovered and archaeological studies of her continue. I went with a sailing ship theme with my van- always loving the ocean and the adventure it holds. I have already attended a van rally at Gratz, Pa in her and she performed flawlessly! since the trip I found a set of fiberglass running boards and have done some added work to the interior as well..This past Wed. I suffered a stroke that has left my left leg and arm partially numb and this makes doing any work a real labor of love since now I only have one good hand to use since I use the other to grab onto my cane.Oh what is a pirate ship without a sword? Si here are a few pix of the wooden sword I made to accessorize.
Since the stroke some feeling has returned- Thank God!
