Sea trials

After a bit more epoxying and sanding and adding the seats, I was ready to see if she floats. We decided on Kate’s parents pool as the best place to test her out. I really wanted to see how easy or hard it was to bolt her together in the water and check for any small leaks. Here’s how she did!
I put her together in about three minutes the first time. I’m sure I can improve on that with practice, but it worked great. Granted this was a pretty calm day in the shallow Redick Sea. There’s also a pick of Morgan and Eric taking her for a row.
Only a couple pinhole leaks which can easily be epoxied. All that is left is to dress her up and properly name/christen her. That will happen next week in a lake.
