Launch Date? What Launch Date?

Why did I install that countdown timer on the web site?  To torture myself?  Yes, it now reads as though the boat has launched, although sadly I'm not even close.  I have given up trying to project a date; It happens when the boat is ready, and not a moment sooner.  So for now, I'll just leave it on the web site and chuckle (or cry) when I see it.

I did speak to the composites expert at my marina today, and he thought I'd have a quote within the next few days for the fiberglass and paint repairs.  I'm looking forward to seeing that quote, and hoping it is affordable.  Having the yard spray the boat will save me weeks of time, and no doubt do a better job than I would battling the wind, dust, and bugs.  I'll be saving a lot on labor (I hope!) because I've removed all the hardware from the boat, and I will be putting it back together.
