 Finally IN The H2O

After four years of work, she is finally in the water. I am still working on some minor mechanical problems such as engine alignment, timing and such but hopefully it will be a great summer of cruising and dock life.

By the way Cutter, forget the dock life - get out there on the water! Stay away from the drinking and social outcasts on the shore and navigate new waters or anchor out and appreciate the wind, sea, and sun. Social life on the dock will get old after a while. I had 10 years of boating on a 32 footer. The best times were on the water, the worst times were at the dock.

ncrunch,

Your wife is a keeper. Even the seasoned veterans at the marina did not know that she is a Silverton. There was a slight change from the original 1985 model, extending the cabin hand rail further aft, where the name used to be placed. So I am guessing in 1987 the name was omitted at the factory. An artist friend of mine is taking care of that soon. I found a silverton logo and he is cutting it on his machine. She is not the prettiest Silverton ever built, but the cabin layout is outstanding. And since that brand has a reputation for rock-solid hulls, I felt she was worth refurbishing.

Your other point is well taken although this is a small marina and you won't find the huge dock parties here. It is only about a half a mile from my home, so the wife and I do enjoy sitting there in the evening after work at times. I have a great view from my bridge. I am on the outside row, stern facing the bay.

Nice to hear from you all again! Yes Dennis, this has been totally consuming. Once you add in the usual chores, the wife's broken ankle and going to work to earn more $$$ to spend on her....where did the time go!! Hopefully I can re-balance my life again, yet it has been a labor of love.

Cutter, yes Silverton is a great boat - I am sure it is worth refurbishing. Dock life can be fun when folks are as nice as I am sure they are further north. We had some great times also in Montauk Harbor looking out on the Bay on from someone else's flybridge (with permisson, of course). I could get into hundreds of stories about the people we met and experiences we had on our boat. Most of them were great adventures that we never want to forget! Have fun and the best of luck to you and your wife on the water.

Well done indeed.

It certainly looks like you've done a fine job, but come on, out with the details man. Never mind what still has to be done, what kind of fun did you have in the last four years, details, inquiring minds need to know, Laughing out loud.

More pictures wouldn't hurt either.... Laughing out loud

Good to see you back Cutter.

Best of luck.
