Thanks!

Hard to be sitting back relaxing waiting for the grandkids to arrive knowing I could be doing stuff on my boat. Oh well, probably best to decompress for a while.

Just spent the last few hours reading your thread, an amazing accomplishment for you, the work looks top quality and you know it's done properly, I hope the first cruise goes well, take some painkillers for when your jaw starts hurting from grinning too much...

No "good job" smilies on here so I borrowed one...

Fighting a cold at the moment. I wasn't terribly productive in the yard today. Have a small list to get accomplished before splash. Hoping to get it together Friday and splash late or first thing Saturday. Cold front is coming in with high winds which may delay the splash. High winds on the bay can push water which yields abnormally low tides in the winter. Because of my draft, we need to launch within a few hours of high tide.

Hope you bounce back from your cold soon. I have little doubt that your slowest speed while under the weather is still light years ahead of the glacial speed of my team. In the past week, a pulpit got cut to shape and a couple coats of varnish got applied and sanded. Whew....take a break guys...you must be exhausted!!

Standing by for a splash report...Good luck, Ted!

Take your time. Remember the worse thing you can have on a boat is a schedule. Stay safe.

Al, sorry to hear about the slow progress. Hard to have patience when the work seems straight forward and their spending their time on another customer's boat.

Man I hope I'm turning the corner on this cold! This sucks!

Will post splash pictures when it happens.

Dave, threw the schedule away a year ago. Just want this to happen before real winter sets in. Hope your cruise is still going well.

Over 4000 miles and haven't had a bad day yet! Hanging out in Longboat Key for two months. Should cruise Fort Meyers area around the last week in February and then on to Marathon. Hoping our paths cross.

Longboat for two months!

Hope you have some day or short trips planned so you can see the rest of the area.

Dave: Longboat Key? I live here and the Red Tide has chased us off the Island for at least half of the last 50 days! Where are you camping out? I'll drop off a bottle of wine.

I'll be Fort Myers then, one way or another. Hoping to head South first week of January. Will definitely get together then.

Well, I met the Fryedaze crew this morning for coffee and was delighted to find out that Capt. Dave was as much of an introvert as I am. Betsy, on the other hand, makes up for the lack of social skillls in both of us.....sufficient to give the Fryedaze vessel a social mark well above average. That Monk Overseas 42 is the best conditioned boat I've seen of that year and style, absolutely gorgeous. I'm even more encouraged now that once Ted arrives with his awesome Cherobini, the chances of us being able to avoid the Moonstruck dominated east coast event is better than ever. The remaining fear is that Ted's late splash will be more of a splat than a splash, and his perfect paint job will have to do ice-breaking duty till he gets south of the Chesepeake.

No launch yet, wind was blowing 30 knots on Saturday. To tough to safely handle the boat out of the slings in those kind of winds.

Sean is working on my bill. He points to the garbage can.

All the rolls of tape and masking plastic used on the boat. Instead of logging each roll, he just throws the spent tubes in a box to be tallied at the end. Same for sanding discs, paper, and mesh. There were several big boxes of sanding supplies.

Engine started right up, very quiet, very smooth, no vibration! Love my Deere. Generator fired right up. Have a few of things to work on, but overall 98% success!
