Ready

After a week of sanding and painting, my home is ready to get back into the water. The I can get a good nights sleep again as I don't sleep to good on land.

Re: Ready

Thank you for the kind comments folks. Looking forward to splash her tomorrow. A week is long enough out of the water for me and her.

Beautiful boat, FC. I was hoping to see you on the upper bay today. A little chilly, but great sailing.

Re: Ready

Its a DIY boat I just bought the naked hull from a company that went bust and built the rest. The deck and cabin I made out od laminated ply and then glassed it over. Yes she is sturdy and weighs in at just shy of 23000lbs not a sprinter by any means but once she gets going, she can keep up with the more modern boats quite easy. But she comes into her own when it stat to blow a bit.
The dry stuff is ... length 35' beam 9'82 draught 5'6" mast height 48'
Thank you for the kind comments.
