On the trailer and ready to go at Sacket's Harbor, which is about 60 miles
north of Dick and Anne's home in Syracuse.
Dick and Anne on the water at last
and floating very high
Motoring away under inboard power, daggerboard rudder well up but
GREY HOUND still handled very well
Coming into the dock for the first time
Unfolding the starboard side
and then the port side
The 44.7' (13.62m) mast setup and ready to raise
on the way up
and almost there - the raising system again worked very well, with mast always
under complete control. It could also be done single-handed
Leaving the dock, unfolded, and ready for anything
Pushing the daggerboard rudder down
and coming back for the launching ceremony
which was superbly done by Anne
Time to relax and celebrate in beautiful Sacket's Harbor
It was a little windy out on the Lake for the first sail, which then took place
the next day - photos soon.
In the dock, where the very high beam and folding strut clearance can be clearly seen,
a major improvement with all latest Farrier designs.
