No photos to post but ORCA was refloated at noon yesterday and all caulking was tight and strong. The boat only weeps water as expected. New genset was test run and all fine there. Only electrical issue remains in the use of the inverter to charge the housebank of batteries. The breaker will not hold and trips after only charging the batteries for a few minutes.
The boat was delivered from Everett to her new homeport of LaConner and is berthed awaiting her continued life as a fisheries research vessel as well as salvage jobs and who knows what else!
