Not exactly a boat but still a triumphant moment for me.
After sitting since the 1st time I flew it in February of 2009 I finally "grew a pair" and put this one back in the air today. Having so much money wrapped up in it made me a nervous wreck every time I thought about flying it. But, after a couple years of trying to sell it without having to ship it and lowering the selling price a few times.... decided that if I bought it for what I was selling it for it wasn't that expensive. It's actually a good flying plane. With exception to the landing I couldn't ask for better.
