Delivery of Seapickle II







Delivery day has arrived and with it came nasty weather. I was already nervous about the considerable jump in size from a 19ft ski boat to a 28ft cruiser, but factor in steady 40+ mph wind, cold weather, and docking for the first time in these condition in front of a crowd and I'm sure you can understand why I was a little stressed! Amazingly with the help of my good friend Billy and the two guys delivering the boat on standby at the dock to catch the boat, I was able to smoothly glide into our slip!


Billy and I spent the next 1 1/2 hours trying to figure out how to install the canvas, while Dana and Mina went to pick up lunch. Figuring out where all the canvas pieces go for the first time is hard enough, but trying to stretch and snap it into place when it's cold out sure didn't make things any easier.
