Maiden Voyage of C~Horse, our 22′ C~Dory Cruiser

MAIDEN VOYAGE OF C~HORSE, OUR 22′ C~DORY CRUISERWe finally had our first opportunity to put C-Horse in the water, which was pretty important, because we brought her home by way of Indiana without ever seeing if she floats…she does. 😉

Mrs-Mr-Padilly-WNow, I must confess, when it comes to boating, I am strictly the first mate. Mr. Padilly, with over 40 years of sailing and boating experience, is truly the captain. But I have my jobs to do, and one of those is handling the vehicle and trailer at the boat ramp.

I must admit, I was a bit nervous with the C-Dory because of her size and because she is the first motor boat I have handled (I’ve only worked with sailboats and kayaks up until now), and most of the boating accidents I’ve seen happened at the boat ramp.

C-Horse, our 22′ C-Dory Cruiser

C-Dory 22' Cruiser - C-Horse

 

Next week launches the series on my 17′ Spirit Deluxe Casita’s Glamping Makeover, but I wanted to share with you our new 2002 C-Dory 22′ Cruiser; brought home to Texas today by way of Indiana (Go Hoosiers!).

We have named her C-Horse and I’d like to think of her as the water equivalent of our Casita Glamper Free Range; although I don’t think Mr. Padilly will approve of me “glamping” her up (maybe just a little accessorizing 😉 ).

In addition to sharing our camping adventures in our Casita Free Range, we will also be sharing our adventures on C-Horse; from cruises on our own neighborhood lake, Lake Conroe, to extended cruises such as Galveston to Freeport, Texas. You can read about my travels on my Travel Blog link, to MrsPadilly.com.
