The first sighting!

It's our Rustler!
It’s our Rustler!

This is it!  Our keel!  The photo was taken in the mold shop, and the hull is still in the mold – unfortunately.  We’d hoped that we’d see her being lifted from the mold, but it wasn’t to be.  We missed the timing by only a day or so too.  Nick (Rustler Yachts) was so sweet about it, and we were compensated by climbing the rickety scaffolding to peer into the mold from above.  As we wobbled on said scaffolding, we were amazed at the size of her – almost wanting to check that Nick hadn’t made the next size up.  Still, she’s underway, and we’ve been promised a photo diary.  Watch this space!
