She looks and sounds great, congrats be proud and enjoy. It's a shame we have to go around looking like a cheshire cat :mrgreen: after a launch but it will calm down after a year or two to just a permanent grin :)

Wow! Picture perfect textbook launch. Brought tears to my eyes. Congratulations Tim. :D :D :D :D
Now, if Jamie and me get our "A's" into "G" we might have 3 boats for a gathering. :wink:

Jamie has his work cut out for him though, 6 days work a week and 1 day for family and boat. His lovely Wife was very supportive though. :)
By the time I have built a boat, I'll be ready to build a boat....

Inspiring! She looks and sounds fantastic.

Its amazing to see launches from the other side of this big blue marble. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Give me 4 or 5 more months for my lakes to thaw out and I will be doing the same thing.

Tim, congratulations! I really like the way she moves through the water. I see so many classics that have such a bow-up attitude that you have to stand or sit on the seat back to see where you are going. Your boat/the Monaco has a really nice ride and it sounds great. Both videos are now in my youtube favorites list.
