Splashed!

she's floating at the dock on da riva! Wasn't going to, but a couple of friends were in the mood and in a couple hours today the deed was done! We use wheeled cradles and big trucks.. it's nerve racking but basically the same as launching a smaller boat.

My new house banks was dead! the starting bank near dead! I left the inverter "on" . After getting things re charged and running the engine. I decided to ck the amp draw on the old microwave I have.. 19-21 amps.. must be a small unit. I was expecting close to a 100 amps on the inverter.

So.. my boating season begins!

The rumor of me dancing on the bow of my boat in da moonlight and less "some" articles of clothing is greatly exaggerated!

Congratulations on the Launch Denise. Nothing feels better than a floating boat. Wait, that's not true. Oh, I know...a boat never feels better than when its afloat!

Have a great season...MGM

Congrats Denise. We're just in as well and beginning our first commissioning weekend this Friday. This spring has been so rough (wet, cold, windy, rotten), its almost hard to believe the season is finally here.
