All systems go…

Bushranger has launched! After two years and one month she is finally happily bobbing in the water. And may I say, she is looking rather spiffy! All decks have been scrubbed. Eisenglass (clear plastic windows) have been installed on the bridge. All walls, floors and accoutrements dusted, wiped down and disinfected. Any and everything that could be washed in a washing machine was laundered. Victuals bought and stowed. Maintenance undertaken. All checks completed. Sea trials successful.

That is what we have been doing this last week in unbearable heat and up to 91% humidity. 

We are ready to go!

Our broad brush plans have already changed thanks to Hurricane Ida. She has decided to make her presence felt here, in the Maryland/Delaware region. We set sail at 11.30 this morning to high-tail it over to Rock Hall three hours away on the eastern shores of the Chesapeake. We have opted to stay snug in a marina securely tied up for the next four days, by which time we hope Ida will well and truly pass us. High winds and rough waters, thunderstorms and flooding are forecast. Bit of a bummer!

Such is Life!
