Waterline Systems -
Portsmouth, RI - April 27 - May 16
Guess who our VERY FIRST
guests aboard ESMERALDE were? CCA Rear Commodore
Garry Fischer and Angela Brown Fischer raced over to
Waterline Systems on Thursday, April 28, to check out
the very newest member of the CCA Boston Station's
fleet! We were absolutely thrilled by their visit,
and we think ESMERALDE passed muster. Garry
and Angela: thank you for your enthusiasm for our
project! We hope DIVA will allow ESMERALDE to sail
alongside. And Angela took the very first picture
of Dorsey & Bruce together on their new boat.
TPI/Waterline Marine Systems
started right away on the bottom job. The blue is
a signal wash so they can see where they have sanded.
Thanks, Dunes, to you and your gang, for your TLC. On the right, there she is outside with
her spiffy VERY SMOOTH red bottom.
Below, Bruce took
advantage of ESMERALDE being inside at TPI/Waterline to
get most of the electronics & watermaker installation
Esmeralde is a bit of a
mess as Bruce installs all her electronics toys.
Most everything is in place on May 11, with some final
wiring still to be completed.
