The boat: it floats!

The Nautilus was piercing the water with its sharp spur, after having accomplished nearly ten thousand leagues in three months and a half, a distance greater than the great circle of the earth. Where were we going now, and what was reserved for the future?
Jules Verne – 20000 Leagues under the Sea

Our thoughts exactly as we took Sey Fey on her first patch of water at Goolwa today. This is the boat Richard bought for $50 and converted it from a rats nest to a fine craft. We weren’t even the smallest boat on the water as next to us a grown man was playing with his toy speed boats. Sea Fey looked lovely.

The good news is, she likes the water and the wind for that matter. Even I trusted her (and Richard) enough to go for a sail. Now that she is proven, Rich has a few bits to finish, and we will have the official launch of HMS Sea Fey.

Some photos are below and also an exclusive video [not available] [WMV – 2.54MB] (worth turning your speakers up).
