She Floats!

18 December 2008 | Stuart Florida
Lots of sunshine - 28C
Another 5 hours of cleaning and organizing, last minute solar panel repairs, close all the thru-hull valves, and lift the boat up 4" to remove all of the supports, and then repaint the bottom where the supports were.

Off to the market to pick up more food supplies while the paint dries, and then back to boat to drop it in the water.

The inboard engine started immediately, and I backup down a long narrow channel (not easy when you cannot see the rudder) and drive around to a nice spot on the dock.

Connect to shore power and shore water, and we start to test things to ensure everything works. So far so good.

Tomorrow should reveal any problems.

The marina bill was so large it exceeds my Visa limit (which is $20K).

So it goes.............

A few days of charging batteries and flushing water tanks, and then we're off into the deep blue ocean....
