Part One - Part Two - Part Three - Part Four


I was able to get two coats of blue on the fore and stern decks. I also got one coat of white on the inside yesterday. The weather is not letting me paint today. The race now is to get a launch before the ski rack goes on. Car topping with the ski rack means swapping it out with the boat. I want to launch this year.


Moby Dink is painted at last. I may get to launch on Saturday! I still need to finish the oar locks and screw down the seats.

Plan "O" is for oars! I'm sure my Niece will point out that I skipped a few letters. I couldn't see using the dorky little oars from my inflatable so I looked on Craig's List.

The boat is finished! All I need is to get it to water!

No hearty volunteers to help launch yet so I hoisted Moby to the dingy sling I kept my old Walker Bay in. Moby is 10 pounds lighter so it should not be a problem but it seemed heavier or am I being a worry wart? I will keep the car outside until we get through a wind storm. If Moby survives, I will park inside again.

12/26/2015 launch Day!
