Re: Splashing tomorrow
Congrats, I'm jealous. We were supposed to launch on Mon, but delayed a week. No good weather window to bottom paint.
I splash with all thru hulls closed and open them one at a time. Charge all batts on shore and test the bilge pump.
Extra lines and fenders at the ready, but the marina probably takes care of that.
Our marina will not launch you without an operating bilge pump. Some actually want to close all thru hulls and put their batteries back aboard from the dock. Despite this precaution, I've seen one boat go down at their slip, each of the past two years.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
