 About the project

As the boat was being put in the water the camera battery died. Fortunately, Dave had a cell phone that could take pictures! Riding high, she begins to take on the ballast water with me sitting in the stern. If you think I look tense and concerned you are correct. While the ballast tank is filling up, the water can slosh back and forth and make the boat quite unstable.
