Re: Minuet gets her tail feathers wet for the first time!

Thanks for the kind words. Kathy's grandkids live up in Leander, so we do plan to bring her to Austin. In fact, we scrounged the mast, mainsail and trailer all from your area.

Now if you could do somethin' about the level of that lake....! 8)

See launchings tab for an update, too.

Minuet gets her tail feathers wet for the first time!

Kathy and I have been working very hard to get our Minuet "Spirit of Jessica" ready for an upcoming event that we have been using as a goal for completion.

Re: Howdy from Katy, Texas!

Thanks for the compliments. It's been a very fun project. It is tough having the "big" boat on the west coast, but I hope to change that following the completion of our Minuet. (one project at a time!) It's been fun reading the posts from all the Aussies. Kathy and I have a bit of a connection as we...
