MV LAST CHANCE IS AFLOAT!

I have written a few times about my husband's boat building project. He and two friends formed a partnership to buy an old damaged boat and rebuild it. It has been a project for the last three to four years. All the important things have been redesigned and rebuilt and it was ready to put in the water a month or so ago. They found a leak and it had to be taken out and repaired. Last Saturday it was ready to launch again. This time it went smoothly - no leaks. It spent a night at the dock and then the next day it was towed a hundred yards up the canal to its new slip. It was towed for safety reasons and because there are some engine hookups that have to be completed.

The boys/men are happy. Here are pictures of it being assisted in its move.




ALWAYS,

I bet Ken is in 7th heaven right now! The boat looks terrific. When are they going on the big trip down to Florida?

Can you call a boat 'lovely'? Because it is! Well done!

That is a magnificent boat, and what a wonderful job they have done. I bet they are very proud of themselves. Looks like lots of fun on the horizon.
