The Hill 16 – First Sea Trials

Probably the most anticipated (and anxious) moment for any boatbuilder or designer during the construction process is the first launch.  Does she sit on her lines?  Does she look good in her natural environment?  These are only a couple of the loaded questions that are answered at that exact moment.


A couple late nights as the launch date grows near.

Ready to roll. 

Hitting the water for the first time. 

A huge sigh of relief as she settles on her lines. 

Finally throttling up after a painful break-in period of the motor. 

Looking good at speed.
