The difficulties of bringing a boat to water....
During the many years of restoring Happy Return, we never thought much about finally bringing her to the water once she was ready. So, there were a lot of last minute logistics to sort out: new wheels on the trailer, a help from neighbour Connie O'Sullivan with his tractor on Sunday morning, organizing the crane at Roaringwater pier with the Whooley brothers.
Impossible to plan in detail!
Gleaming in the sunshine - ready to go to sea!
At the pier at last - loading fenders, mattresses, sails and camping cookers
