As you can see we will do the rest of the boat on land. Gary agreed to finish the boat on land if we got scuffles and he did not have to work on ladders, so off to the rental company we went.

Was that boat for Mr. Jake, who ever it was for it has been sold. They are doing whatever needs to be done to complete the sale. The new owners are talking with Gary to paint the boat with a wild design on the sides.

SPLASH MONDAY !!!!!!!

After 5 months ,we let the boat dry out for 4 months,in the shipyard and much much work and many of B.O.A.T.'s we are ready to splash. I would like to thank Gary with GARY'S YACHT BRIGHT Houma La. for a job very well done. His ideas and craftsmanship has brought the LUNASEA to level above what I thought could be done. With over 40 gallons , 6 coats of epoxy and 2 coats anti foul, of bottom paint and 4 gallons of Imron, and reworking all running gear I hope we are ready for a few fun summers.
I was very surprised to know that most of the parts, rub rail, port lights and other moldings we needed where still available from the original manufacturers. Now we will do the top side at the dock.

I believe the buyer of the Aussie Cat is a towboat Captain for Setoon.

We launch Tuesday after being out two years.

So many things fixed, replaced, modified or otherwise messed with I'm apprehensive. Hope I got it all back together and won't have any shocking surprises. Painting the bottom tomorrow. Gathering mooring lines, fenders and all other operational stuff for Tuesday.

Eric,

Best of luck on the launch. Just went through a very similar experience. Now 3 trips and 120 miles later everything is holding and looks good. Torque checked on all the fasteners, clamps and hoses checked, temps measured, I think maybe it's safe to breathe now . . . .

Great to be back at home port,,,,, After trying to remember how the boat was tied and hooking everything up we sat on the dock ,having a cold one, looking at the great work Gary has done and then realized how much clean up we have. Being in the ship yard that long with all the dust inside and out, people going in and out of the cabin we will have a few days of cleaning to get her back in shape.

After spending the day at the boat yesterday and starting to get everything back in shape, we noticed that the boat was setting higher than normal. My son said, remember we let it dry for 90 days an coated the bottom, going back to our measurements we did before the shipyard we picked up 1 1/2" in ride height. Never thought it would pick up that much.
