Ok Pookie, Do the Honors....

"Spaulding, get your foot off the boat!"

- Judge Smails, Caddyshack 

Saturday, Oct. 1 was the boat christening ceremony.  First the launch at Quail Lake, where several friends gathered, mainly to see if the Huerfano would actually float.

Followed by some illicit champagne (city park = no alcohol) and a toast to the Huerfano.

Then, with some trepidation, it was time to push her off into the water.

Some rides were enjoyed by the faithful, all glad she floated just fine.

All were very appreciative of the fly-over, specially arranged with the Air Force, prior to the AF-Navy game :)

Then it was time to winch her back on the trailer and head back to the Marland Boat Shop for burgers and beer with many friends, including many of those who have helped so much in the boat build process.
