Bligh, I'm guessing you are back in the water now that my boat is setting where you were. I didn't realize you were at Ladd's.

Funny. I drove up there this weekend and saw my boat missing and your boat in my spot! I drove around a bit and found where they moved me to. (Still there)

I got there about 9 AM Friday, your boat was moved and mine was in your spot drip dry. Alan shuffled some other boats, put two in the water and pulled two more. He then helped pull the trans and bell housing on mine before calling it quits for the day. It was his birthday, 83! He is amazing.

Did you paint the boat yourself, or does Alan have a painter working again?

No I didnt paint it. I had my fiberglass guy do it at Ladds. Hes still working on it. Another 2 weeks or so and we should be done. Ladds is doing a few things for me and painting the bottom.

I'll be conducting TF Super Secret No Notice On The Spot Refrigerator Inspections and will check out Frisky for any spare IPAs. I sure hope you do better than the last time I checked out your fridge!

Update:
Hoping to splash on Thursday. Hull is polished and wax is going on today. New carpets and cushions being installed. New mast installed. Hydraulic pump is now mounted on engine and a new belt guard is installed on the 5.9. New rub rail will be installed at the slip.
Hoping for no new issues!

Let me guess, you're a pilot.

Not sure.. buff and wax 2 or 3 times annually.

Oh, wow, beautiful. Nothing better than a nice bright red hull. We had one on a Tasman 20 Trailer yacht, many moons ago.
Ok, no excuse now, Captain Bligh, for not changing that 'disturbing' avatar pic. She deserves to be up there - and more in posts as well.

Found this old photo I had recently scanned in. Brings back happy memories of when the kids were young. No surprise why we called her Princess Leia...

P.S. - She's beautiful.
