The mast was wrapped with thin foam and the rigging secured to it and then wrapped with plastic stretch wrap.
Then it was loaded atop the boat and the vessel was shrink wrapped for the long haul to San Diego.
It was an uneventful three day run down to San Diego though she did draw a quite a few looks and she rolled onwards dwarfing the truck. She looked huge shrink wrapped.
The following day the boatyard lifted her gently off the trailer and lowered her into the water.
Four years building and she was finally floating! It was an incredible day and an amazing four years!
There are so many people that helped along the way and I am forever grateful for the help and encouragement to git-er-done! I could not have done it without you all! Thank you thank you thank you!!
