OK - here are some pictures

We've spent the last few days figuring out where stuff is on Daydream Believer and what switches make what accessories work. We've pretty much got her figured out. Here are some pictures.

Daydream Believer is launched

The 2008 boating season has officially begun (for us, anyway). Clark's Marina splashed us yesterday and today Daydream Believer came home. Fortunately, the St. Lawrence is high and there's lots of water at the dock. After several trips up and down the cliff (the GFCI is at the house on the top and the dock is at the bottom - puff, puff) I finally found the right combination of switches to connect to shore power without tripping the breaker. Don't know when our first overnighter will be, but I think we're good to go. Handling is quite different with twin inboard screws as opposed to twin outdrives which I had just about mastered. Give me lots of room for a while. On one of my many trips to the boat today, there was a tourist couple on my dock - breathlessly enjoying the river and the view. They told me that we're very lucky. They're right - we are truly blessed!

More pictures later.
