Man. I knew she was a big boat, but I hadn't really put together how big. Congratulations, Ian!

Thank you all. In so many ways Meg's birth was midwifed by the WoodenBoat community. Once we start snow birding the Atlantic coast, I hope to stay in touch and meet WoodenBoaties who will at least visit, maybe sail with, reason together on moral philosophies, and always tell stories. All welcome. Agreement with my sea values or any other values unnecessary. In fact, a little spirited dialectic is always good.

As the launch showed, without diversity we'd be pretty boring.

Wow, nice ride!
Congratulations!
If you you ever round the horn (or whimp out through the canal) and come to the West coast, lets sail together. The Snipe you helped me restore would like a visit from her big sister...

There's nothing like seeing a labor of love finally come together and see her take to the water for the first time. Congratulations. Looking forward to the remaining fit out and sea trials.

Since I'm a little vague on what finastkind means, I'll go with "totally awesome"!!! Hope to see her someday down here in St. Augustine. Congratulations, Ian!

Wonderful, and another finastkind for you, Ian. I'll be keeping an eye out when you get down to the Chesapeake.

Well, that indeed is a proper boat! I say that because we all know that a proper guy built it!
God's Speed Ian!
