Back in the water at last

The bottom paint is finally done and ‘Imi Loa is in the water! I haven’t written about our boat buying/transporting experience yet but it was quite a process. It seems like forever since we bought her and today she finally feels like ours.

‘Imi Loa being lowered into the river in Portland – May 6th, 2010

Now we go to work! There is a long list of things to get done, at the top of the list is getting the engine running better and inspecting our rigging so we can get the mast stepped. Oh, and cleaning!!

Not quite ship-shape yet.

  1. Congrats on being finally launched! We’re barrier coating & bottom painting right now…hoping to be in the water in the next week or so, weather permitting. Good luck with the cleaning!
