The birth of a boat

This was THE day I had been working towards for almost 3 years. All the work during this time was done to prepare the boat for this moment. The moment she was lifted from the cradles in the shed, deep in the bush and transported to the water. To be lowered into her element, where she would spend the rest of her life.

Day 1 of 2 of the launching of the Tokyo Express.

This video of the first day of the action is on loading the boat onto the trailer and getting her out of the shed and up onto the road where she would spend the night. Ready for the trip the next day to the water.

This video has a lot of real live video from that time.  It’s old flickery VHS video but it captures the moment.
