Rot Progress

Mis-Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

Today was more drying of the rotted wood and some gentle removing of very rotted wood. The OFM is being very careful to not cause more damage and since he is so clumsy it takes him quite a while to do very much. So far no evidence of exterior skin damage is evident.

Tomorrow it will be time to wash the exterior caulk area in preparation for Eric to redo the caulk in the area of this damage. It was HOT today here. The beach area was packed to the limit of the land available in spite of the vicious sun.

The dampness inside the walls seems to be diminished to nearly nothing. We are certain the new dehumidifier is helping with that issue. It will still be a couple of days before we quit having a fan blowing through the cabinet.

In the mean time everyone go out and try to have tooooo much fun for us.


  1. c'mon Barney..we need a pictoral history !! Glad to see you are upbeat about this project. I had to get off the road for health reasons and miss it immensely !! I still read blogs every day. Rolling Earthquake.

  2. It amazes me how wood will fall apart after water damage. I still have more to remove over my dash, but I was able to save the upholstery. Wish you the best in getting the Castle back in shape. The young girls will curse the Sun when they get older.

  3. Hope it gets dried up soon and you can everything all repaired too, we will have some fun for you here ok?
