Today was the big day...Steadfast went back in the water. Keith and Mason drove up last night and stayed overnight in order to get done with some of the last minute To Do's - like removing the paint tape and putting on the prop zinc. Then at 10am the process began with lifting the boat onto the trailer and dropping her in the water. The whole time Keith was sending me text messages and my tummy was doing somersaults with nerves. I'd had nightmares of thru hulls popping when the boat hit the water or some seal or another leaking so profusely that'd we'd need to pull her back out. I DO have a very active imagination! Needless to say I was thrilled when I got the final text that not only was the boat in the water but the engine started on the first try and they had moved the boat to the guest dock.
