She's cruising down the road on air... headen to her permanent "bath water"... so she can float amongst the rubber duckies... while you “closely” view all the mermaids!

Best Continued Luck!!

Looking forward to more picts, especially of her SPLASH!

Thank you guys for your best wishes.
While taking her out of the building site, there was absolute attention to side growth to avoid scratches. Before the boat was loaded, we spread lots of polish cream...The power lines are easy to deal with because they only exists in the rural areas or deep inside of the country. My biggest problems are the pay toll gates along the way. I have to cross 2 of them in 165 kilometers of highway.
That's where the trip becomes expensive.

Those tolls have overheads to squeeze under... or one side with open air height. Also, how do they judge the road fee; cubic space, weight, # of tires, value of property... or...??

I'll be cha “a dollar three eighty plus tax” (lol) doesn’t even scratch the surface on charges for that beauty!

Fernando - Continued good luck be with you, yours, and your baby!

They had open spaces at the out edge of the road. A smart business man came up with the idea of making a steel structure of about 25’ height connecting the pay toll booths to the main offices. When a big wide tall load needs to come through, they charge to open that metallic structure. This operation takes about 20 minutes to open and 15 to close, they charge regardless the size, $3K per operation in this road. Yet in other roads, these fees go up to $12K.

She is looking great, Fernando-that is going to be a trip to remember for all time. But, man, is she going to be beautiful in the water, where she was meant to be!

Fernando, this voyage is epic. The only appropriate way to conclude will have to be a photograph of you and your bride smiling with pride on the fruit of your labor floating in the harbor. From my point of view boats are never as beautiful as when their owners are aboard enjoying them.

Continued best of luck to you both.

I have to say that I've had many creations that I had to haul places, and I never trusted anyone but myself to do it. I can't imagine what it must be like to have such a precious cargo and then have to trust someone else to treat it the way you would. I gotta hand it to ya! Something like that going down the road must be getting lots of attention.

Very much attention indeed.
Out of the Highway, we cannot ride during daylight.
We cannot ride during the weekends
We crossed all the good roads so far and now we are at the top of the mountain ready to go downhill to the beach.
Now it is the hard part and it starts either tonight or tomorrow night, depends on the highway patrol. It’s only 45 miles in controlled speed but the road is to narrow and there are 164 curves. In some places the truck will have to maneuver back and forward to be able to turn. I am sure that whatever starts by night, ends early in the morning.
After arriving, I’ll be mounting the flybridge, rigging the mast and several other small things. So, between 15th and 18th of July she will splash.

However, we did not wanted to assist the loading operations. We were a phone call away.
During the unloading we will be doing some shopping. My heart cannot handle such tension and I am paying a lot of money for transport and insurance

We are already in the marina spending the weekend. As you can see, it’s raining….

What a trip! I understand why you want to avoid the congestion of Sao Paolo. Will the home port be way north in Salvador?

Wow-Fernando-I did not realize you were so far from the coast to start with. I followed that road into Ubatuba on Google Earth, and I do not envy you. I don't think I could stand the tension after all the work you have out in. Best of luck and my best wishes are with you (as are all here as well).

Show us some pictures of the great result!
