Dock Queen

After 22 months tied up at the dock, the "Dock Queen" err I mean "Terra Nova" ventured out of the Marina appropriately with family. The five year old and two year old were particularly enthusiastic! Those white things (I think they are called sails) were hoisted and Terra Nova actually moved. No single handing for a while but with a crew I can venture out finally. All the boat worked properly and I worked OK except for people yelling "don't do that". Not doing things is hard.

Pics to follow.

The "Dock Queen" is now "Terra Nova" again! Yea!!!! :egrin:

Congratulations Bob!
Has the USCG station on Ediz Hook been notified? Are timid townspeople fleeing inland?
:egrin:

We snuck out on a heavy fishing day so the Coast Guard was busy rescuing errent anglers on the Straights. The mountains go straight up behind Port Angeles so the timid could'nt flee!

Christian,

I can hardly wait for the redhead to grow enough to reach the spinnaker pole bail. He's going to be tall and willowy. Perfect as a foredeck guy.

The blond guy is going to be short and beefy. Perfect for s grinder.

Maybe I can just spin the wheel and yell at people in the future. Ha! :egrin:

​Woah, Christian! I'm not ready for the full size versions of the 5 year old and the two year old. I just want them to be slightly taller! Nature takes it's course.
