Launch Day at Lake Macquarie

Yesterday was launch day at Lake Macquarie for our new boat. The boat is a 42' medium to heavy displacement semi-custom cruiser built by Bluewater Cruising Yachts at Newcastle NSW. It looks pretty sleek now but we're going to fix that by adding a hard dodger, stern arch with davits & all the usual cruising goodies. It has to be finished so we can sail it to the Sydney boat show in 2 weeks time. Sorry no pictures of it in the water as I was too busy finishing off the remaining food and refreshments. I might post a few more pics here as the rest of the stuff goes on. Oh, I nearly forgot, there's a tall stick thing that has to go on in about the middle of the deck as well.

We've named the boat Sabbatical II hence my username change from Eleebana. There was already an Australian ship registered as Sabbatical which is why this had to be No 2. The name was chosen as it exactly fits our purpose for the boat. We still have a business running that is managed and I have told them I'm taking a sabbatical of about 12 months. After that I'll tell them some more.

Re: A few more pics

See you at Sydney - or at least your boat! Before I (saw the light/moved to the dark side) I gave a lot of thought to a Bluewater Yachts built cruising mono.

Re: Launch Day at Lake Macquarie

Congratulations. That is one really amazing boat!

I am a big fan of Bluewater yachts, sadly being so beautiful and darn well built also places them out of our reach for the moment.
