We had a great experience at Schooner Creek Boatworks yesterday as we launched our Cal 20. After all the hectic preparations, it was great to be met by helpful and enthusiastic help when it was time to raise the mast and have the boat lifted and lowered into the basin. For neophytes like us, this was just what we needed.
Here’s the pictures from the day:
Today, we plan to sail/motor to McCuddy’s later in the afternoon. Before then, we need to work on our old Evinrude 6 hp since the new Mercury 4 hp hasn’t arrived yet. We were graciously offered the loan of a 3.5 hp today if we can’t get the Evinrude running reliably enough. Hmmm– maybe meeting the people who enjoy boats is best part of sailing.
