In the water after a long winter restoration

Here are some pictures of our boat being launch for the first time since we bought her, and after a long winter of restoring the boat, everything from new deck and topside paint, heat/ac, windlass, teak, new plumbing...

beee-uuuu-teee-ful...

For those DIY guys, and those who want to be, could you lay out some of the costs for what you've done? (and the priceless cost of your own labor.)

I think it would be helpful for people that want to have a fixer-upper to know how much can go into it.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
