and I thought I had it rough putting up 560 sq ft of allen block wall and moving my pool filter,pump, chlorinator, and installing the heat pump for my pool. Looks like your pool is not only self contained but self regulated as well,no chlorine needed...lol

It would be a hell of a lot better if it hadn't leaked!

But we have a new liner here, which I think we can double over and still cover the original area. A pal is supposed to be coming over to help me get it stretched out.

An awful job to do by yourself.

OK, back to the end railing...I think this is the first trial fit of the corner.

It is not a 90 corner, so I couldn't just chop it at 45 on the big miter saw.

I hated to do it, but I had to drill a whole bunch of countersunk screw holes in that varnished wood!

Since then I have smoothed the joint out, got the corner post bolted on, and the first coat of Helmsman is on.

I'll have more on the Helmsman Urethane tomorrow.

I just checked the marine forecast, and it's 10-15 knots with the current satellite showing quite a bit of cloud coming in. It's crystal clear here right now, and the milky way in Cygnus is showing up well.
