Thanks everyone. Allan (44C), I heard from Paul that you back from up north and it would be great to catch up.

you refer to we were starting the engines and the front was still sitting on the launching trailer, hence the bows out of the water.
We mover Ta Heke (Liquid Avalanche) from home to the local marina on the Tuesday morning, lifted her onto a launching trailer, stepped the mast
and then had a party and stayed on board that night. The launch early next morning went without any major dramas, I think I had about 3 hours sleep over three days.
