Spring On Cape Breton - Launch Day for Easy Go

Spring has been slow to come this year. We came back to Easy Go in St. Peter's on May 15, 2011 from our wintering place in River Bourgeois. Cold and rain have been the main weather pattern of spring this year. We had below freezing temperatures as late as May 22, 2011 when we came across ice in the dinghy. Warm weather will be arriving soon!

Launching Easy Go was not nearly as exciting as when we pulled her in the fall. The trailer was adapted to fit the bottom of the boat and we had considerably less distance to haul her. She was easily lifted onto the trailer by Cape Breton Crane then backed down to the small craft launching ramp and lifted from the trailer to the water.

Lateness of the day and poor weather prevented the installation of the mast so they were left out until a later date.
