Whoa! Gorgeous work. It's probably better that mine will never look like that. I'm just too afraid I'd damage it.

Hey Scott, sorry about tying up the lift. Bad day! Got Down East Yankee is back in the water late afternoon and I helped Allen get Frisky ready to go. You going to be around tomorrow? If not, I'll get some pictures of the splash.

Even though my day was less than wonderful and you drove 2 1/2 hours to see your boat launched and didn't get it in, someone comes along and reminds us that it could be worse. Like this poor guy that stuck his pretty tug in the mud close to high tide after you left. That is the channel at the end of Band C dock.

I dont mind that you needed the lift today. What I do mind is me driving 2.5 hours only to find out from a customer (you) that I'm getting delayed. One short phone call from the Ladd's could have saved me a 6 hour round trip. You can bet I was seething on my 2.5 hour drive back home. I dont really have anything nice to say about Ladd's. (Acutally that is the nicest thing I can say about them)

Thank you everyone for the kind comments. Frisky is almost three months into her overhaul. We are chomping at the bit to get our boat back. Weekly trips to the 'yard' have only added more stress to my life. Hopefully we will be back at our marina by next weekend where life is much more relaxing. Ill post more pictures then!

I missed the splash. Had my head in the engine room and when I looked up, Frisky was already tied up. Looking good! Put on the rub rails and shiny trim pieces, she'll be ready for the photo shoot.

It really is true that every boat is a compromise. The two major compromises I had to make were ; 1) I wanted a sailboat and 2) price. But all my other needs and wants were fulfilled by this boat. When making my decision I made a list just like all have recommended with wants and needs, then I sat down and chose the boat that best fit that list from all the boats I had looked at over the last 7 months.
I sorry to have to tell you this but a Nordic tug is not a sailboat.....

Whats funny is i was looking for a sailboat and am now leaning heavy towards a trawler with at least a 4,000 mile range.

I know it's not a sailboat. That's why I said it was one of the major compromises I had to make. (you even quoted it)

"The two major compromises I had to make were ; 1) I wanted a sailboat"

Regardless, 2 years into ownership, I am convinced i made the correct decision going with a trawler over a sailboat. We really enjoy the amenities, the outside views from the interior spaces, and the interior space that our boat provides over a sailboat. YMMV

I am guessing we know each other from Sailing anarchy and our friend Rimas!
