It floats! It floats!

The boat went in without a hitch last Wedensday. My thruhull repairs held. The motor started ok. The only hitch was the wind. It was too windy to put the mast up.

So, we were going to raise the mast Thursday but some asshole tied up his boat at the mast crane and left for the evening. He screwed over half a dozen guys wanting to raise their masts too. What a jerk.

Sooo, the next day the wife and I went to the marina early in the morning to raise our mast only to find our mast burried under more masts. I lost it and left. (With the wife of course).

Now its raining.

Getting closer to launch..

Went into work to finish up the winter overhaul of the mighty outboard. (I had the motor stored in the hospitals boiler room). It started ok in the boiler but when I installed it on the boat it wouldn't start. I have 'til Wedensday to get it going. That's all.

Warning! White winter skin!

The two photos are of the leaking thru-hull sealed off. Still have to fair it up and paint it. The other shot is me, sans shirt on April 2nd! In Canada! 25 degrees Celcius! Wow!
