Here's a shot of The Floating Empire, making her voyage to her new home, witnesses in attendance.
The Floating Empire sails off on her new adventure.
I'm sentimental about stuff in my life, and this is no exception. The Empire has been our home for going on four years. We built every inch of her, sweat and blood literally in every screw driven, every board cut. I'm so very happy not to have had to break our little ship, and delighted that she's in the hands of someone who will give her the care she needs. We're off to new adventures with Tesla's Revenge, new creations, new places, but still. . . .
