Looks like a quality repair job. I'd have no problem going offshore in that boat once it's finished.
If it was fresh water I'll bet those engines will clean out and fire up and you guys can be on your way.

i will post more pics of the boat repairs and answer a few more questions tomorrow. to clean up the floating questions, yes there was a first attempt at raising the vessel with float bags and it was un successful as it tried to come up with the bags it continued to try to roll. once the coast guard on scene didn't like how things were going the decision was made to bring the crane barge in to lift her up. i would like to especially thank brian and phill from tow boat for doing as they told us they would from the beginning and accomplishing the task of raising her. we would also like to thank ICE environmental, local DNR, and the USCG for all your time and efforts.

This boat will have some big history.
I hope it gets restored.
Keep up with the great updates.

can we get T-shirts made? this will be the most famous Viking Yacht in history when she is running again. I will definatly go see the boat when it is finished, think of what we would have missed without THT!

You know, another good non-humorous name might just be "Phoenix" (Rising from the ashes...) Sign me up for a T-shirt!

So yesterday I posted 5 or 6 names that I thought were creatively humorous. I just checked back in, and it seems that it many on THT lost their sense of humor overnight. I used to know a guy that used to always say, "Eff 'em if they can't take a joke." I think that fits. I have read every post on this thread, and my heart sank when this boat did...again. But I never see value in a boat's name unless it is funny. Make somebody else laugh. For example, I know a dentist who named his boat "Mental Floss". Another named his "Morning Wood". These make me chuckle, and dammit if laughter is not the best medicine. In summation, lighten up Francis.

I am not ashamed to admit that I find myself checking this thread 3-5 times a day. NEMS, thank you for the updates you are posting. We understand you have your hands full at the moment. Hope to see you on your way soon and getting that beauty restored and back in the water.

I would def. sign up for a tee as well.

But I did imply they are idiots. A misfortune would be a tornado coming out of nowhere hitting his boat.

Knowing a hurricane is coming for a week and not moving a million plus dollar boat...

That's not a misfortune.
Hurricanes are 500-800 miles across. you can only move them so far. we have gotten several large destructive tropical storms here in the Northern neck. Not even hurricanes. I had a 35' Contender through two of them. One the storm surge came so quick even before NOaa et al said anything I could not even get to my flooded boat slip. I watched as the surge pushed my contender through the roof of the covered slip. Several near by boats sunk that day. Mine, amazingly, only destroyed the outriggers. The crazy strong Contender hard top actually pushed through 1x6 and tin roofing!!

The next storm I begged a mega trailer and got the boat out in time.

My point, i think, Sandy caught a lot of rich and poor, novice and salty boat owners together.

tight lines

I have thought the outboards were a pretty good and cost effective way of moving the boat and it proved successful. But now so close to home I gotta believe taking the time and money to get it running may be better put to use by towing it the rest of the way..... You could get a tow boat there from his boat yard in a day and half. Time to tow vs running on outboards is a wash...... Then let the clean up and restoration begin at home where you have more of your own resources....


Good luck the rest of the way.
