She finally got launched last Saturday.  It was a light air day, which is perfect for learning my new boat.  She ghosted along like a dream in practically no air.  Launch photos and a few videos follow.  The older gent in the launch photo is Don Rausch.  He's my boatbuilding mentor, and the guy responsible for introducing me to B&B Yacht Designs.

Having a problem uploading videos.  I'll attack that later.  In the meantime, here are a few more photos.  My photos won't rotate.  They are upright in my file management system, but not here.

What is the length of your oars and have you tried your boarding ladder yet? If so what are your thoughts. Thanks.

Steve W:  I'm not a beekeeper, but I do like to play with words.  The (non-plywood) materials are all locally grown, and the boat's a honey, so...

 

Alex:  The water is too chilly to try the boarding ladder, at least to intentionally try the boarding ladder.  I'm waiting a few months before I do that, hopefully.  I think the oars are 8' long.  I'll measure them later on, and get back to you.

Now it's time to thank you all for all your technical support.  She is a much finer Honey than she would have been without all your assistance.  Soon, I'll post a photo of my mizzen sheeting system, so stay tuned.  But thanks, everyone, for the help.
