Triton #503 is launched

After completing several projects, including the tilt-up outboard well on Triton #503 Salty, we launched the boat at a local Brunswick area boatyard. We took Salty on a 17 mile test trip motoring to her new slip near St. Simon's Island. The 6 HP 20-inch shaft outboard motor functioned as expected, pushing the Triton at 5.5 knots in calm waters and up to 5 knots bucking a slight chop in 15 knot headwinds when we got into the sound close to the ocean inlet.
