Feeling a little

burned out from all this boat building stuff so we decided to take a lil' break from it. Been getting anxious for a boat ride too so we pulled out the ole' boat (the one we can't seem to give away) and get her rigged for a dunking. This will be her first time in the water in over two years.

This could be fun or a disaster. Don't change that channel! :-)

Update: Got our boat ride in! :D

We had a lil' fire on this boat year before last and that kinda set me back a bit on boating. That and we did a quite a few things with the car club last year. I was a little apprehensive about taking her out but had to do it sooner or later. Boat worked perfectly.

The one thing I'm going to miss going from this to a Trawler is the speed! :?

I apologize for the crappy pics but the Admiral was definitely enjoying herself. ;-)

The CCGS Griffon docked in Prescott Ontario. I worked on her in the fall of '78 as a deckhand then went to College for Marine Engineering. I returned to the Griffon in the fall of 1980 as a Steward and stayed on her till 1985. During my time on her I went from Steward to Storekeeper to Supply Officer.

I think we're going to take a bit more of a break from the boat building, save some money (hopefully) and do a little more boating this summer. Will probably be back to the boat mid August or so.
