A Crazy Plan to Launch the Shantyboat in the Ocean [Video]

It’s true. We launched in the Santa Cruz Harbor yesterday and pulled the boat out into dry dock. Freddie Mercury wouldn’t start (dead battery) and so we needed to get a tow from Monty, the nicest boat-tow driver ever. For the next four days we are going to be doing intensive work on both the hull of the boat and everything topside.

Okay, so we’ll see you down at the harbor for the next few days.
