Bella Luna hits the Water

In the factory
Friday April 20th was a very exciting day for Debbie and I.  Bella Luna hit the water in fine style.
The following pictures are of the boat leaving the factory and traveling the 1 km to the launch site.  The road is very skinny and overhead wires and branches are very low.  The workers had to use machetes to cut branches and brooms to hold up the wires.
The driver of the truck used to tow the boat was a very experienced and competent driver.  He did an amazing job of negotiating the roads, turns and launch ramp.
