kbyte Beautiful boat!

Nice to see there are still some bright spots in the boat building industry.

Steve,

Glad you got to come aboard! Yep, Kon Jeni-AL is well on her way to becoming part of the in-water fleet. She was launched right after your visit and now has a mast. (as of Monday). I went down there this past weekend and asked David Norwood, owner of Carolina Wind Marina, and Thumper if I could motor her around some. She's not quite been cleared with the Yanmar people so I just putzed around the docks for a few minutes. It felt like Christmas fer sure.

I'm hoping to come back down in a couple of days when Yanmar does some trials. My Ullman sails arrive in another week, at which point I'm taking a week of vacation to sail her around some.

I must say, the little I drove her around the docks, she felt as nimble and easy to handle as my 19 foot Bayliner. (Well, not quite that much but still, very easy)

Now comes the shopping list: dinghy, life lines, etc.

kaluvic Sounds like fun...I've been a boat freak my whole life and have never been to a boat factory or a boat show?
Go figure!

Visit to new factory last week

My wife and I spent a week in Oriental NC recently on vac. While in the area we made a trip to little Washington to visit the new factory. Thumper spent 1/2 the morning with us showing us all around, visiting the hulls under construction and some of the completed boats. Best of all was to meet everyone and see first hand how passionate these folks are about their boats. They are planning on expanding at their current location, a sure sign that they plan on being around for a while. Steve Brodie was very gracious and offered to help us with any issues that may arise with our boat even though it was one of the last completed hulls from Ca. Rita in the office also came from Ca, she made us feel at home and showed us all the paperwork for our hull. She added us to here list of names and owners, a list she is very familiar with.
