    Here is a short video about our boat being launch earlier this spring.

    Robert, great job on the video. I think it is first class in content and production. I hope you post more as you sail this season and also show things you do at the end of the season.  

    How much does it cost to launch the boat?   Will you be sharing information about the boat purchase and any work/repairs that were done prior to launching?

    If you cannot earn Volunteer Service Miles by creating and publishing this video, I recommend that the Bridge consider a method for awarding VSM credit for this kind of work that enhances membership in the PSC.

    Thank you for the compliments!

    This was a private vlog for our boat and I thought it would be fun to share with the Club.  Knowing that others are enjoying it is reward enough for me.

    Some point soon The 7 OCs will have its own website/blog.  That will include details about the boat including some of its financials.  The 7 OC's is Catalina 36 and it possess a lot of characteristics that are common on Bay sailboats.  I hope to produce a series of 'How to' video's from the projects we have planned.  One of which is dropping the mast for an overhaul.

    Kudos to you for the video, the beautiful boat, and for a successful launch!   We are just preparing to transport and launch our first keelboat, a Ranger 22, into Hampton’s Landing, then cruise her down to Quantico, where she will stay.  You have given us hope that this venture might just be achievable- thanks!
