Time to raise the black flag once again for another Pirate Ship update! The original plan was to have it back out in the yard immediately after we were done painting it, but an ever-increasing stack of other jobs didn’t allow for many personal projects. It also didn’t help that we’ve been having one of the rainiest winters of the last five years. For the better part of 2 months, we had to set it aside and wait for fair winds and clear skies.
Today, we decided it had been long enough. It’s been a couple of days since we’ve had rain, so the ground was dry enough to take it back outside. We even sent her on her maiden voyage (though we didn’t have any champagne, so the ship might be a tad cursed).
After a quick ride around the block, we think she’s found her final resting place. Even though she appears to have run aground, we got plenty of honks and waves from the freeway, so she seems to be doing her job well. We haven’t decided on a name yet, but hopefully that will happen in the next week or so. Stay tuned for more updates!
