it floats

We put it on the trailer after flipping it but we didn't get it on straight so we had to launch it to get it right.

Without the engine and other sundry stuff it is about 1200 to 1500 pounds lite so it is floating seriously high.

Flipped and in!

Wow! I can
t wait to see it fitted out. Do you think fitting out will be done for a true maiden voyage this year?
As for my boat five more pieces of fibre glass and a coat of primer and it will be turned over on a trailer have a motor put on and launched.
++++

Longrod I am seriously jealous. I could have the boat done for the clave if we didn't need an engine. As it is we are waiting on some parts. It will probably be done by the time I am on my Honeymoon mid September and Michael will be taking it out for it's first trips. Of course if he does that without me I will have to kill him.

Boat launching

Hawkey,
When I am ready to launch the boat I will let people know. Last of the glass goes on tomorrow!

Greg, stay away from that ramp at Whites Landing, I had to take my boat down to Great Pond to get it to sit right after the clave and the LOOOONG wait at the ramp. That ramp S*CKS!

Chuck and I pulled the boat to get gas and make a store run. I think Mike witnessed the 26+' bayliner trying to get out by driving all the way up on the trailer. It's just too steep to drive on all the way. This guy took like 40 minutes and nearly had the thing sideways a couple of time. I found that putting the rear rollers in driving up 1/2 way and ratcheting the rest worked. (Thanks for the winch power Larry) Worst ramp I've used, but look where it puts you.

Case,
Speaking of ramps, how's green pond?
Doesn't look like much parking there. I'm thinking after work (read leave work early) Albie runs, unless the larger cousins are in my waters.

I like the Poppy ramp though it is shallow. The last two times I've put in there though I ended up with a trailer flat. Something down there is biting the tires!
