It's about time you splashed Willy Eric. Now get out there and burn some diesel.

Eric, good to see you back on the water. Willy is looking great. She looks like she is wearing a brand new pair of shoes.

Not ready to cruise yet. Not even very close.
Need to install the heater (Wabasto), hook up and do serious flushing to the domestic water system, finish getting the anchor rode together, get a dinghy on the roof, install the helm seat and lots of other stuff. Plan on rigging permanent fenders to the moorage slip and get another set for cruising. Need to pump the fuel tanks again to check for water ect and perhaps get some more fuel.

But she's floating again. It actually feels a bit weird since we've spend so much time working aboard on the hard. We did a lot. Quite a few things that have been on the to-do list for 10 years.

Something either interesting or odd is that the engine seems to be smoother. Idles at 800 warm and 600 cold .. like before. It's even smooth at idle. Haven't run her up yet under way. Interesting she did much less rpm at WOT than I expected. Don't think I have run her WOT tied to the float before. Anyway she runs at least great.

Eric, it's hard to believe you've been off the water for so long. Congratulations for your return.

You seem to have a plethora of zincs around the propeller and rudder. Was that an increase, and if so, why?

A really nice boat; sadly there are no Willard's (to my knowledge) cruising the Baltic Sea. How old or young is Willy?
