Randy,
Was the waterline on the stern at the correct level? The paint seems a lot higher than what I am used to seeing. I was curious to see how it turned out once the boat is waterborne. Congratulations on a long hard journey You guys have done a fantastic job!

We are looking into that it came off the Higgins pans I think it is the dynamic water line,

How are your pumps doing? How much water is in the bilges? We had to watch ours for about a week until inlet flow leveled off. We were going by how many times an hour the float op bilge pumps would come on.

WE WERE WE IN THE WATER FOR 2 HOURS, FOUND A FEW LEAKS, 2 STRUT BOLTS, PORT SHAFT SEEPAGE SOME ON THE KEEL. WE FIX MOST OF IT YESTERDAY, WE HAVE SOME LEEKS IN THE HIGGINS BILGE PUMP BUT THE ELECTRIC SYSTEM WORKED FINE. SO WE THING SHE WILL GO BACK IN THE WATER AROUND THE 28 SO SHE CAN STAY IN THE STRAPS FOR A FEW DAYS. THIS WEEK WE WILL TEST THE FRESH WATER COOLING SYSTEM AND OIL SYSTEMS FOR LEEKS.
