Launch of Monaco "Ciao Bella"

Post by Ozzieboat » Fri May 23, 2014 4:41 am

Although my Monaco, "Ciao Bella was first launched in October 2013 it was not until sea trials and some minor sorting was completed that the official launch was celebrated in March 2014. I would like to thank Glen-L for a beautiful design and faultless plans, Bruce Dow, Rich Coey, Tim Major, Craig Strike, "Forum" and "Customer Photos" contributors (it's amazing how much information one can suck from a photo even when it wasn't even the subject of the post), my turn over team, down under advisors and most of all the support of my family.

Well done, ozzieboat! Such a beautiful boat and glad we could be part of it. It truly is your hard work and excellent craftsmanship that is to be praised--congratulations! I'm sure your Gallery photos are helpful to other builders as well.

I very much appreciated the invitation to join you, your friends & family on the official launch day/weekend.

Looking forward to a another river run together in October.

Alan,

You should be very proud of your achievement in building such a classy boat. Your photos have been of assistance to me in my Monaco build in Cairns. It would be good to catch up with you at Yamba.
