Our Great Escape From the Work Yard to the Water

The day has finally arrived. After taking a junk boat sitting in the graveyard to do a complete overhaul on it, we’re now ready to move it to the water!

With rain like we’ve never seen before in south Florida, our launch was pushed back an extra few days as we scrambled to finish last minute projects in the work yard. With the exception of a little paint peeling off the bottom as it stuck to the jackstands, our launching went as smoothly as we could hope for and we are now peacefully floating in the water after gazing at it for two years.

A few more weeks of projects at the docks and we can finally get ourselves on the move!

Cheers from the WATER!!

  1. M &n J,

    Just got to see the video and loved seeing the boat in the water. I have just finished traveling across Labrador and landed in Newfoundland, without much, if any, internet along the way. The boat looks great! You must be feeling so satisfied, even knowing you still have work to do. What a job, what a commitment. Congratulations.

    If you are sailing north, just keep going (!), I am currently on the northern tip of Newfoundland and planning on spending the summer exploring the whole island. Looking forward to seeing the next video on your final prep and continuing to follow your travels.

    Again, Congrats.
