After almost 10 months on the hard Eagle Knight splashed and motered to her new slip without a hickup.
Some work is left to be done befor our first sail however..as the riggers made a few mistakes so sails are not hanked on yet. And there is a few other odes and ends to tidey up, but before summers end she will once again slice a wake in her new home waters of Puget sound.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks Guys..

After parking her in her slip and my wife and middle daughter leaving for soccer practice I setteled down to a few brews as I waited for the fridge to come down to temperature the warm afternoon sun warmed my face. I almost felt like spending the night but alas..another soccer tourniment starts early tomorrow in Gig Harbor 60 miles away.

So she sleeps alone tonight in her new birth...patient... wavelets kissing her hull...waiting... yet more waiting.
