Finally.
« on: July 13, 2018, 08:15:23 PM »
Finally got the boat lauched Wednesday. What a long winding road full of the detours of life that get in the way..  This afternoon the wind was honking out of the SE which really causes a ruckus for moored boats in Belfast, ME harbor.
Reminded me of anchoring out on the ledge or the canyon when I was younger chasing big fish..
Felt right at home, bizare but true..

Pebbles finally float, still has a dry bilge, & I am taking the rest of the summer off. Goodnight from Belfast, ME



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

Congratulations for succeeding in finishing the preparation and getting into the water.  63 is a good age to ease off working and enjoy life for a bit, I did it, and never regretted it.  I am looking forward to your reports.

Bob, what will be the first destination?

Not sure how this ended up under t&t, must have been the salt air :)

Norman, I think this year for me this is the destination. Still have stuff to do like wire up nav lights, depth sounder, couple of 100 watt  panels.
I need to sort what I'm going to do for an anchor roller. When it was blowing yesterday I was watching the bow & have concerns about the yet to be installed mantus anchor roller cutting the pendant to shreds.

Just to be able to head out in August for day sails around Penobscott Bay would be such a  joy.

Any sail boat regardless of size is a potential world cruiser, but a power boat is nothing more than a big expense at the next fuel dock

Bob - here's a little 'present' for you and Pebbles as a "Congrats on being afloat!". Took your image and went a little artsy on it, hope you like it. :)
