A special thanks to Udo Nixdorf of Georgetown and Tobermory for putting all this together and being a good neighbour to Sally!
Yesterday was our scheduled day for picking up the Sandpiper so Chris Rogers, George Graham, Grant Reynolds and I took a Ferris Beuler Day Off to fetch her....
|Sandpiper just emerging into first water - it is raining!|
|Chris, Udo, Sally, MB, Grant and George|
|She trailed beautifully and got lots of attention at our Timmy stop in Owen Sound|
|Safe home to the boatshop, now we just need to make room inside...|
|Done! but a bit tight.|
|George and Grant sponge out the rain water.|
So thank you Sally for a wonderful gift that will see some kids get sailing! Meanwhile we need to scrounge a few little things including the Yanmar, brass port lights, sitka spruce, deck fittings, etc, etc. Should becoming part of the Sandpiper's future appeal to you - come on out!
