Are you launched yet?

Blah. My engine is still not finished with its refit ... so it doesn't look like I'm getting in the water until the week of 4/23 ...

Are most people launched yet?

Re: Are you launched yet?

Still have about 5 days worth of work to perform before I'm in the water. scrubbed and sanded everything above the rub rail today--damned old muscles are really sore now. Tomorrow I have to remove the bow-pulpit roller for the anchor and replace it. Next Saturday, the masking tape goes on and the painting begins. Should be able to paint the topsides in two to three days if the weather cooperates. Than I can get in the water and begin having fun.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: Are you launched yet?

Well I'm still on the trailer in the barn...BUT I'm finally past the tearing it apart and working on it stage...

Got everything (but the bottom) painted that's gonna get painted and am in the "recommisioning"/loading 'er up stage...

Cushions, Curtains, Stove and Grill go in today and thinking I might just cook and camp out tonight on board...kinda getting used to the old girl...Heck low is only supposed to get to 50's tonight...(snow on Monday )

Unfortunatly between now and Memorial weekend it is my "busy season" and throw in a couple graduations on the weekends I probably won't "splash" till first week June...

Re: Are you launched yet?

Spent the winter in the water. I was between jobs the last two weeks of March and spent several days installing a new iPod interface stereo, an X5 Autopilot and Raritan head. Did a short haul on the 27th to clean the bottom/running gear and replace zincs and moved the boat to our new marina that day.

Last weekend we did the sea trial calibration of the new autopilot so were on the water for about an hour (it was blowing stink and we had no sails on).

Today my fantastic better half went up the mast to re-install the lazy jacks and re-tape the spreader boots. After those tasks were done we got the main on but the wind was too high and directly on the stern so we just chilled a while til the winds layed down some then got the genny up.

As I type this from our slip, I expect we'll go for a shot sail tomorrow.
