Very nice!!

Also good to know that I wasn't the only one that felt a LOT of apprehension at the first launch of my boat.

Like you I repacked the stuffing box.

But, I also replaced two of the three through hulls, one of the seacocks, all of the plumbing, and the raw water strainer all before first launch. It all worked!

I imagine that you felt a lot of anxiety until you jumped down inside and inspected everything. Glad that it all worked out!
