The Launch - Our First Wedding Anniversary
Sun, July 01, 2012
Disasters aside, today is the day. The weather looked murky but who cares, the launch is set for 12.00. Its about 1/4 mile to the canal but it seemed a lot longer when carrying the canoe.
Gently does it, Diane complete with Squaw feathers and me with my Davy Crockett hat!
The moment of truth...she floats, break out the champers!
At this point Matt was playing the theme tune for Hawaii-5-0 followed by Titanic and Jaws as we paddled up and down the canal
Chris and Diane have a paddle so I can assess see what she looks like in the water. I am in love! She looks fantastic on the water, and the boat looks quite nice as well!
She is quite wobbly but is very responsive to steering and moves faster than the boats we hired in Devizes. The book warned me of this and I am sure we will get used to the her.
Interesting, I wonder how much they would pay me to take it away...we have the technology, we can rebuilt it!
Brilliant day, it all worked and nobody got wet!
Last of the champers before the long haul home, we must find an easier way next time.
