I decided that enough had been done on the boat to let the Constance Marie get wet. We launched her on Friday, August 23 - my mother's birthday. I was determined to get some fall sailing in with my wife. The Down the Bay cruise was right around the corner, but deep down inside I knew the Constance Marie was still too sick to go very far from the mooring field. So we sailed in the harbor outside Charlestown and Susquehanna Flats and learned how to sail the basics with my wife, our oldest son Jordan and our friend Dale.
Who knows what next year will bring? More resurrecting power that's for sure!
That yellow flag is the Scottish Flag of St. Andrew, many regard it as the Scottish Battle Flag
