Allure 17/18
« on: December 03, 2017, 02:48:46 PM »
After several days of prep (the sun took its tole this summer) Allure was splashed on Friday. Crazy getting ready to leave home after being away so long, then the drive down to Florida, flight over and practicing my karate kid moves (wax on.....wax off)....I’m having a lazy day!
I’ll put off posting pics unless it is some neat boat I’ve saw or other “new” place or thing. Don’t want my Abaco posts to seem like Groundhog Day and after so many years here it kinda feels that way to me...  Will see how the season unfolds....would be nice to travel somewhere new.
I can say that is sure IS nice to be afloat here again!
Snow when I started the drive down....80 this afternoon. No complaints!

Frank
Some days you just shouldn't get out of bed unless you know there's going to be caffeine for sure.
I read your post 3/4 the way before i realized Allure 17/18 was a date not a boat type...im thinking what happened here.... so everyone enjoy a good chuckle on me :)

Hopefully motivate a few “on the fence” about coming over....
Or....motivate a certain “west coaster” to come back east, launch his pretty blue boat and get back over here!

Very Beautiful!  So glad to see her back in the water....  I spent a lot of time holding my breath while the various storms passed this year...

  You going to try heading south this year?  Feed the pigs, check out Georgetown?  Maybe even Conception Island?

700 Islands beacon you my friend!

Thanks Craig.
Ya gotta know you’d be that “west coaster” I’m talking about!!
Have company coming down twice this year so doubt I’ll make it too far S.
Thinking Berry Islands, Eleuthera and back type of loop.
Hoping to see Faith floating again some day.....
The islands are calling.....

She has nice lines. I like the way you have the solar panel mounted.
Did you use the bimini frame to support it?
If you can please take some detailed pictures of the mounting system. I'd be interested in seeing it.

Thanks
I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Somewhere here there are several pics of the mount, but this one shows that the Bimini already had 2 vertical supports from the stern rail to the aft rail.
The 2 panel extensions bring it up about 10inchs further to allow a slight tip forward when needed as well as full tip aft
Hope you can see on this pic

Thanks for posting that Frank.
I do remember seeing pictures of that back when she was being commissioned.
