Yes, we're still here in Vero Beach. I did get my survey completed and the report back so I sent that to the insurance guy for a quote. I also got my paperwork I needed to register my dingy so I got that done. Now we are waiting for the numbers for the dingy, and some parts for my generator to arrive and we will be ready to head north. I sure hope we can get everything completed early next week so we can get underway.

We are in the water and we have almost everything operating normally on the boat however we can't seem to get out of Vero Beach. I need to get my survey completed and get my dingy registered before we can get underway. I need the dingy so we can anchor out and still get to shore and without it we are restricted to marina slips which are way too expensive. My surveyor is supposed to be here Thursday morning to finish that up and I hope I can get my dingy registered by then as well. We are really ready to head north!

This post marks the end of the building part of the life of the Molly B and the beginning of a new life on the water. Linda and I are looking forward to living in our new home and seeing all the wonderful country accessible by water. We will try our best to keep you informed as to what, when, and where we are. Hope to hear from you from time to time.
The day of the launch is here and the start of a new chapter in our lives aboard our new home. It's been a long time coming, but I think it is all worth the effort. The launch didn't go without some problems but we got some of them fixed and headed north from Ft. Pierce to Vero Beach FL. Once here I had to tear the fly bridge apart again to fix a hydraulic leak in a quick disconnect. You can see the disassembled boat deck in the bottom picture.
