She's back in the water

After a 5 year rebuild, she is back in the water and happy.  It was a memorable day.  Below are pics.

Congratulations from Sweden! I am also the proud owner of a long keel HR ( Monsun 31 ). Some advice: DONT try to steer in reverse! Turn the boat by quick bursts of propeller action ahead and reverse. Find out what way she wants to turn dependending on what way your propeller moves in forward. Stay on a spot by this action and slowly move the boat around its axis. Then move AHEAD where you want to go. If you try to steer in reverse in wind your will end up anywhere the wind tursn you. Perhaps in a concrete pier for example. Take care Pat and Have a Good Watch! Tor in Sweden.
