Here are some pictures of the launch of an old bateaux that has not been in the water for over 30 years. For those years it was a lawn ornament. To a large degree it was a joint project with many hands on the project.
I can say that it was a thrill to be there at the launching and to hear the pop pop pop pop of that engine .

At the ramp and going down

Still on the trailer

Kissing the water for the first time

Taking a good deep drink
( maybe this is the boat version of a
French kiss)

Coming into dock for the first time
The lucky owner ( David) is in the front)

Tying up - note the dirty Tee shirt and suspenders on the guy at the back of the bateaux

I had a really good time visiting with the Louisiana boys.
