After months out of the water, receiving repairs, renovations, and a few coats of fresh paint, my beloved Wedding Gondola is back in the water.
John Kerschbaum from Minnesota arrived a few days ago to keep up the tradition of rowing with us for V-Day. As soon as he arrived, we put him to work, contributing to the Wedding Gondola painting project like only another gondola owner can.
This afternoon, when the paint was dry enough, we launched her and rowed back to our docks in Newport.
It was a nice windy evening, and we were treated to a good stiff gale to row against.
What a great rowing experience, not to mention the workout we got.
After we reached the dock, we pulled the masking tape off and checked the bilge for water - no problems.
Tomorrow we'll dress the gondola and she'll be ready for passengers.
Here are some of the photos from the day:
