Reprieve!!

Thanks to the super effort of my neighbour Robert Sweeney who stepped up to the plate on Lorri's and my behalf, and to the kind support of 34 other neighbours who signed Robert's petition, the City Manager of Mission is tearing up the ticket issued to us by their zealous bylaw department on Monday, and is giving us another two weeks to finish the boat.
I have already arranged for the boat mover to launch her next Wednesday, which gives me plenty of time to finish up the rudder, paint the areas under the shoring, and jack her up to accept the hydraulic trailer.
I'm going to relax tonight!
