    Paul's been doing such a great job sanding, gluing, filling, painting,
    waiting, measuring, etc...

    We finally had a chance to take Amphi out (she's been in the garage
    recovering) this past Sunday. We plopped the kids in the back seat and
    headed down the boat ramp and floated off for a test drive.

    Rosalie, our 3.5-year old, kept checking to see if there was water in
    the hold, but amphi was dry as can be! We managed to drive from one
    bridge to the other (30 minutes), with only the engine (getting too hot)
    giving us trouble.

    Now, I have mastered the bilge plug removal technique from 30 years of
    opening her up after a swim -- it's pull and run, basically, so as not
    to get too wet. This time Paul pulled the plug and a small stream of
    water dripped out. Whoopee!!!

    Everyone should be as lucky as me. First an Amphicar, and then a man to
    take care of it! Gotta gluvit.

    Sorry we missed Celina. Thanks for all of the photos! It's weird to see
    so many Amphis all together...

    If you're riding ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then
    to make sure it's still there with you.
