Far Rockaway, NY

Here she is...the new NOVEMBER RAIN. Fresh out of the tent. Deckhouse stripe, antennas and masts will be on/up shortly, but this is really our first look at the boat from more than 2 feet away. My mouth hurts from smiling. There are no words to explain how excited we are.... More pics soon.

It's been a looooong winter and spring. We were hoping to be in Montauk by now but fell slightly behind schedule. Ended up having to cancel our first two trips of the season but were fortunate to get the groups rebooked with other boats. A little disappointing. However, when I get on the boat and see the work that's getting done, I realize that it's all worth it. The guys at Atlantic Service are doing a phenomenal job. There are so many details that require such close attention and they've rebuilt the boat as if it were their own. Steve's been down at the shop with them for 12 hours a day working to get it all done -- the carpentry, the electrical, the plumbing...all of it. Lou Costa, of Louis Costa Pinstriping, finished the name earlier today. It looks great. Been waiting to see NOVEMBER RAIN across the transom since this time last year! We should be coming out of the tent at the beginning of the week and are hoping for final USCG inspection by end of week. If we're lucky, we'll be in Montauk by the weekend. Can't wait to start her up and take the first ride this week. Almost time to get on that roller coaster!! We'll post updates this week...and hopefully some photos of the boat underway. More soon!

It's mid-May and our first charter of the season is only a few weeks away. The guys have been on the boat non-stop and it's all coming together. Still lots to do, but things are moving quickly. We'll be coming out of the tent soon and will be moving down the block to the water shortly thereafter. We're waiting to finalize the date that USCG will come down for final inspection (when we'll finally know how many people we'll be certified to carry). Once done, we'll steam to Montauk -- should be the last weekend of the month. Counting down the seconds til go-time. Like a kid waiting for her first roller coaster ride, the excitement is unlike any other...
