READY TO GO!
As you can see by the picture, we are READY TO GO!. We finished the boat today, June 24, and the yard checked out the engine and the electronics are finished.
We will splash tomorrow. However we must tell you we are launching half a boat, the bottom half.
We decided to replace all the rigging, the wires that hold the mast in place. There was some corrosion at the bottoms of the wires, and we decided it was best to replace it all in Cleveland, rather than next year in Florida. So, we are launching a large house boat tomorrow. Joy had to have the boat in the water for our Hot Dog
party on Sunday, June 27.
The rigging should be here before the July 4th holiday weekend, and we hope to leave for the Lake Erie Island either July 5th or 6th. We will be there for a week, and then back to Cleveland to restock and then head up to Buffalo for the Erie Canal passage.
Thanks for following us on our adventure.
