The moment of truth is at hand! All being well Pirate goes back in the water on Monday next. The props go on tomorrow - including the two in the bowthruster - and that means all the underwater work will be complete. All the electrics are in, the new bilge pumps have been installed, the cabin top has been repainted and the outside helm position completed - and good it looks to!
Assuming she takes to the water on Monday the engines will be filled with oil and coolant, dipsticks marked, last checks complete and on Tuesday we should "fire up the Quantums" for the first time. Can't wait - Christmas will come early - I hope!!
