Default Launching our catamaran and first ever Sea-trial

Here is the eagerly anticipated, long awaited, critically acclaimed launch video. It has been a long time coming and massively overdue. This video also includes our first ever sea-trial.

Take a look at this proud family basking in the joy of a successful sailboat renovation and getting a small taste of operating their restored vessel.

Thanks Cowboy and yes, it was a great day steve_h - and every time I check the bilge areas and find it completely dry, I wonder what I was ever worried about.

Default Next Phase

Well the plan is to day sail up the Keys to Miami where, if everything is going ok, cross over to Bimini and down into the Bahamas, past Nassau and down into the Exumas.

At that point, make a decision on whether to continue on towards the BVI, or go back to the States.

All depends on how our boat is doing mechanically and if anything major comes up when we shove off.

We sailed our boat six times before setting out on our circumnavigation. The catamaran was new, and we did not have time to do lengthy sea trials because it was late in the season. We survived, and you will too. Enjoy.
