Tardis Rollout

April 27, 2017  Hours spent building to date:  3,740

The Tardis rolled out of the shop today into a foggy morning (but that’s better for the varnish).

Ray and Bob Scott brought a donut buffet, bunting, martial music and of course, commemorative signage.  Tom Tolla provided aerial videography with his super-drone (people who commission $2 million homes love drone videos as their house grows and money disappears).  Chris Keenan from Essex Marine Group set the boat up on the trailer and towed her down to Atlantic Outboard for engine and controls.  So it was quite a day.

Schedule is a little vague from here since weather has been terrible and Atlantic is backed up.  But since the Tardis is totally blocking up their yard, it shouldn’t be too long before she hits the water.

Donut buffet for the rollout

Ray made this sign. Do you know what it means?

Tom’s drone flew around and took pictures all morning.

The shop is a disaster, but feels strangely empty.
