Floating right side up is a good thing!

Congratulations on a successful launch! She'll serve you well for many many years.

To quote Col. Hannibal Smith of "A Team" fame-"I love it when a plan comes together"! Built way inland, trucked down the mountainside to the water, she floats upright, goes faster and uses less fuel than expected and looks absolutely gorgeous! That is one beautiful boat, Fernando. Congrats on a job exceedingly well done. You'll have her home just in time for Spring and Summer!

She's beautiful! Congrats on a successful road trip and baptism! Looks like she can handle big loads of food, drink and people before she settles to her boot stripe! Looks 'just right'!

I am now back home, or better, back in my house.
We have had the most exciting 3 weeks of my life. As all brand new boats, we still have 15 items to adjust and we are on our way to do it, basically, electric/electronic issues.

We are now going to work on that and in October we will take Rainha Jannota home in an 850 miles trip’
Thank you all for your comments and please accept my apologies for the delay in pictures. Please do not hesitate to visit our Flickr site with all pictures concerned.

Fernando, the picture of you and your beautiful bride on the foredeck speaks volumes. Together you created a fantastic boat, now get ready to enjoy the adventure together.
