Boat Name – Freebird

Naming the Boat……….

Today we place the name ‘Freebird’ upon this vessel, it will be carried in the spirit of adventure as those upon her seek the timeless sense of water’s calling.

“To the sailors of old – The Spirit of Freebird comes to you.”

(DRINK)

The moods upon the water are many, from tranquil to violent – we ask that this vessel be given strength to carry on, allow the keel to remain strong and that she defends from the pressures of the water.”

To the ssailors of old – The Sspirit of Freebird comes to you.”

(DRINK)

“Today we name this lady Freebird, and send her with that spirit into the waters to be cared for, and to care for all aboard. We ask the sailors of old and the mood of God that is the sea and in all the waters to accept Freebird, to help her through her passages, and allow her to return safely with her crew. ”

“To the ssssailors of old – The Ssspirit of Freebird comes to you.”

(well, you get the picture…….)

    Sure thing, we will need to schedule a rondeavu point or at least exchange contact information as the date approaches. We don’t want to accidentally pass your launch point given that I am sure we can cover more distance in a day provided I can turn Rich into a lean mean canoeing machine and get him in touch with his Minnesota roots and teach him the “Minnesota Hut” Stroke. He doesn’t know it yet, but his paddle was made for it.
