The Phoenix is back in the water

I know you're wondering why, after the Hudson River Expedition, didn't she go right back into the water and stay there.

We only have dock space for so many gondolas, so after she arrived home and was offloaded from the truck, we float-tested her for leaks and then pulled her out again. The vinyl lettering had to be removed and then I had my paint and gel-coat expert give her a professional buff and wax.

Then she sat in dry storage until today.

Each Valentine's Day, we put a few extra boats in the water, and haul some out afterwards.

Tonight I had the honor of taking out a dinner cruise on the Phoenix.

Here is a photo I took while rowing.
