The guy with the tractor was not available on Sep 11, so we waited a day. It later turned out that Sep. 11 wouldn't have
been a good day to celabrate a boat launching.
The engine was fitted, and then removed. A piece of plywood was bolted to the transom to keep water washing over the outboard
cut-out, because the ramp was pretty steep.
The boat was hauled about 10 miles to the launching ramp on the Lamine River. It was backed down the ramp. The bow hung up
on the trailer a bit, but we pushed it off without too much dificulty.
The temporary extension to the transom was removed and then the motor was bolted on and the control cables were connected.
After 13 1/2 months, the boat is launched. I'm now ready for a vacation.
