Back in the Saddle (or water)

Today was splashdown.  After 5 months on the hard, and lots of personal hours doing some substantial maintenance, ei' Lean is finally back in the water.

A few minor problems - a leak here - a leak there - all to be expected but nothing to sweat.

It was a short 5 mile shakedown and all went as expected.   As we headed south on the ICW to our Marina most of the traffic was northbound snowbirds as is usual this time of year.

We then ran across the Nina and the Pinta.   Interesting reproductions.....  or where they?  Did we enter a time warp?  Hummmmm

Finally we headed up our channel leaving the ICW to our Marina  (about 1000' S of MM 200 on the ICW for you salty dogs) and the day was complete.

Now for a thorough cleaning of the interior - then Cape Lookout the weekend after next.
