Finis, and Off We Go!

We did it. The Eileen Farrell is ready to go. John the welder put in his last day and we're loading up our stuff.

Now we have to figure how to steer this puppy and make it go where we want, so we're heading out to the Vermillion Bay to run around in circles for awhile. Still have a few odds and ends to pick up and provisions to stock up on.

Had lunch with some cruisers yesterday in order to pick their minds with a thousand questions and they pretty much came to conclusion we were nuts, but then we knew that.

Hi Lorenzo, Joyce
I'm glad to see you got out on the water, from the picture on your blog the seagulls enjoyed the trip too.
