Floating Again :-)

I am very pleased to say that at long last, Boogaboo IV is once again floating! Here's to another great season on the water. It couldn't have come at a better time, my friends. . . .

 Before it was time to float, it was time to polish. Here, Anchor Girl & I enjoy our first dinner of the year - a little dry, but just nice;

I couldn't have done it without Anchor Girl's hard work and help. So much so, that we were able to get more than I was hoping for polished in only a few days;

Thumbs up to the guys  for coming in on a Saturday morning to get us launched!

Wevvy took advantage of the weather on Sunday getting a super shine on Docked Wages

Some video from launch week;

 At last! Our home is welcoming us once more :-)

Relaunch 2013 Has Begun :-)

We took a drive up to the boat yesterday for the first time this year (!!) to discover that the marina has already put the first two boats in for the season. Despite the brutally cold weather we've had over the past couple of weeks, they were able to start bubbling the ice to get things moving along.

 The plan is for the staff to start dropping the boats from the covered slips on Pier Two this week and then moving on from there. With any luck, Boogaboo should be floating in two weeks :-)

 Here's a look down the channels, close to our slip. Although there is still about 50/50 ice coverage, things should be cleared out by weeks' end - if the warm weather that is promised materializes. Fingers crossed!
