We were gently eased into the water by the Sealift at the end of the day on Monday. The engine started up right away, the bow thruster deployed, and water did not leak into the boat. All in all a good start. This morning we got the air conditioning working, which is a good thing considering the heat, and started putting away the pile of stuff we brought aboard. We hope to start heading north in 8 to 10 days. Since we are not going far to start, we do not have to get every issue on the boat resolved before setting out. The aft cabin is full of sails, a life raft, abandon ship bags, and assorted other stuff that needs to be put into their right places. It is good to be living aboard again. We were getting to like living ashore in the Best Western Hotel too much.
