The Finale'  ~  The Launching

Waiting for Dad/Karl

Builder's Aboard!




The Systems Check-Out

 

The Launch

It's been done did...
It was too late in the day... about 3:30 in the PM, but, I was tired of the excuses not to launch, tired
of waiting for the next little thing to get done!  There's a plethora of Odds-n-Ends that pop up as you
approach your Launch Windo. 
We had a Motor (checked-out/ready) and We have (most) All the Stink'n Papers!
We have The Boat Registered with The State; We have our Boat Launch Sticker on The Trailer;
We have our Coast Guard Approved Flares and PFDs.
(called Life Jackets, in the 'olden days') 
The boat got wet, the motor ran... it took us out and back, maybe, 4 miles round trip plus some anchor
time for the Boy, Luke, to bottom fish.
It went dark on the drive back home...
Alls' well that ends well!



Yet to be Done

I still need to add the a Bench Seat at the 3rd Rowing Station.  Also, we 'need' some Rod Holders to troll
for the retarded fish as we patrol the shores of the Big Island, looking for pleasant places to explore. 
Diving, Fish'n, Snorkeling and Scuba is what we plan for The Boat!
