We Have Lift Off

3 May

Well, all I can say is, “Woo-hoo!”

 Maiden voyage 2

Bushranger has finally gotten her sea-legs back! Today, Boyd and Terry (our engine expert) pushed the button on the ‘new and improved engine’, and like magic (on the first try!) she started purring — tah-dah! — Bushranger is once again more than just a floating tool room.

She slipped out of her berth like she was ready to rock and roll…and off we went!

We’re ready for a whole new perspective!
