Let's do launch!


The forecast was favourable and confirmed by a check of Hilbre Weather Station this morning.

It's been almost a year since Project Notbad 1 was started



The big moment had finally arrived!

I called Mehmet, "let's do launch!"

A bit of banter down at PSC





Check list checked









Carl kindly did the tractor launch and we were afloat on the maiden voyage!





Mehmet you can open your eyes now!




Yesterday I'd run the engine in a bin of water and found it wasn't that keen on having the choke pushed back in but there was plenty of water churning around;
however, as we headed out towards the rough ground it was clear the thrust was lacking.

Out went the anchor whilst we had a little think and the conclusion was to play safe and head back in.




Disappointing? A bit but it was exciting and great to be afloat on her at last and to see up to 20 feet of depth on the fish finder

Going to try filling the tank with red bull next time.....

Fantastic Paul!!!!!!
I'd call today a sucess!!!!!
She floats, which is never a forgone conclusion, and the limitations of the engine have been noted and no doubt you'll resolve that soon.
Project Notbad updates are always a must read.
Keep up the good work and keep the updates coming.
Good luck!
