The Old Boat Floats!

Last weekend we took the sailboat with us on a camping trip to Lake Merwin in Washington. There wasn't much wind the first few days but we put her in the lake anyway for her first swim in over ten years. My friend Jeremy doesn't live too far away from the lake so he came up to help out.

The last day of camping the sky finally cleared and the wind kicked up. We had a great time zig zagging around the lake for a few hours! (Sorry, no pictures of that, we were having too much fun and getting too wet to grab the camera!)

The only casualty was the trailer which didn't survive the trip - it got the boat home, but it's not going any further than that. If you happen to know of an 18' boat trailer for sale let me know...we want to get her back in the lake soon!

Here are a few detailed shots of the boat.

There is still a little work to do such as installing the grab rails, breakwater and benches, but nothing to keep us from sailing.
