Departure day. Fortunately, after much rain the day before, and more forecast for later in the week, the weather provided a dry break for the move. I prepared the shop and boat earlier in the morning, removing the third set of stands (amidships) to simplify things, and once the truck arrived she was loaded in short order, strapped down and departed within an hour. I took the usual series of photos upon removal from the shop and the traditional “last photo” as the rig headed out the driveway (through substantially more undergrowth than projects from the early days at this shop). Arrival-day photos are here for comparison.
There will be a few short updates to come, covering the completion of the new cockpit hatch.
0600 Weather Observation: Foggy, 45°, dew point 41°. Forecast for the day: Partly sunny with chance of showers and thundershowers, 58°
