My new boat splashed

This is the link to the video of a 44 Antares navigating the narrow streets of BA.

Big Day | s/v two fish

After 10,000 hours of labor, at 8:38 a.m., Two Fish splashed. She weighs 20,000 pounds and 7 ounces and is 528 inches. *Mother, Father and boat are healthy.

Commissioning cruise is in 10 days. I will sail from BA to Uruguay then back to Argentina. Planning for about 800 miles over two weeks. We will see. So many systems to check and learn.

Good pics. You look like a very proud parent, but are you sure it's yours, I can't see a resemblance.

Very funny Neo. Our bows are identical. She is mine for sure. And USCG paperwork to prove it.
