    Ground crew 1 : "What do you think is under that plastic"?

    Ground crew 2 : "One of them fancy sailboat yachts, I suppose"

    Ground crew 1 : "Then why didn't they just sail it here"?

    Ground crew 2 : "Might rip the plastic doing that"

    Ground crew 1 : "Oh, that makes sense"

    The Hand Is Home



    The Hand in the cradle









    Not quite dressed yet. But deck layout and interior quite a bit different from FOX

    Clicky










    Interior spartan, dark and thoroughbred racing machine. Will follow up with in depth report when she's
    fully dressed...

    Tha Hand In Buoy Mode



    Slight hiccup in mast stepping adventures today prevented crew from getting the entire rig together,
    but crew has been busy getting her stripped down to Inshore Mode... pipe berths, nav station, cooking station
    head all removed. Maiden SF Bay voyage is imminent!
