Sea Trials

Mirage requests that the owners get familiar with their new boat and at least put 50 hours on the engines to reach the first major initial maintenance before leaving the area. This is to develop the punch list and have Mirage assistance dealing with any other manufacturer equipment defects that may occur. Most will show up within 50 hours , sometimes referred to as burn-in time. As a manufacturer they carry more weight than an individual boat owner. Reynolds Park is also convenient for the factory to make any necessary adjustments or fixes.

The official christening with a splash of Ron Zacapa Centenario 23yr old rum in honor of Mirage owner, Ken Ficket.

Of course the rest of the rum had to be toasted to Carolyn Ann. In attendance were Capt Peden, Reynolds Park Dock Master, the new bewildered owners Kathy and Joe, and Chrisy from an  N-47 Christina Sea.

Carolyn Ann waits to begin her sea trials.

Everything's a mess as we start to move in.

With a fresh coat of teak oil on the floor, we leave to let it air out.
Might as well go to West Marine and Bed, Bath and Beyond for more stuff!
