I'm In...

Finally after a winter of rehab and refresh I got the Lady back in the water again...

Was hoping to step and launch tomorrow (Friday) and sail the weekend, but got last minute "volunteered" for some community service work Friday.. so I ran up quick and dipped her today...

It was last minute so they couldn't step me this afternoon, but they did give me a free slip for the weekend and are going to raise the stick first thing tomorrow..

I'll head up after work and finish the rigging...still get to sail on Saturday/Sunday...

Just realized I didn't get a shot of her loaded for the road, (I'm slipping) but she was sitting out side for a week or so while I finished the trailer details...Had a couple good rain storms and no sign of water intrusion in the cabin or bilge...so I guess re bedding rails and windows worked...



Trip was uneventful, trailer pulled down the road nice and smooth...launching went as planned (will see how retrieval goes Sunday)

Right now she's tied to the fuel dock in Washburn, cause with the mast laying on the deck (and over the bow) I'd block the pier if I was in my slip...But that does get me first in line for the crane so they can move it back to my slip...

I'll have computer on board so I will post pics tomorrow of her rigged and ragged...and then (hopefully no rain) Sailing shots from Saturday...

I still can't believe I'm actually getting to do this...

Looking great. Congratulations.

Looking at the pic makes me miss our PY26.

Re: I'm In...

I'm jealous. My boat still has all hardware, windows, and toe rail off for painting. (the deck, not the windows)
