The Plover Project -- Life in the Boat Yard (Part 9)

Launch Day !!

On Saturday, May 4, 2013, Plover began a new chapter in her life and we began a new chapter in ours.

John Goodman, Gordo Barcomb, Chantel Barcomb, and my parents, Jerry and Margaret Jourdan were in attendance.

The following pictures show the sequence of events from transporting her to Hillman's Shipyard to her first moments on the water.

As we left Hillman's, Gordo said, "From this point on, you're cruising!"

Heading to Clear Lake. I'm not sure what Major is thinking but I believe it has something to do with "Oh man, here we go again."
