All systems are go for launch. Provisions, life support (beer), field supplies and telecommunications experiments (DirecTv dish) have been loaded aboard. Everything is A-OK!
I was really worried about the water test. The last thing I needed to find was a hidden leak prior to launch. But she's a good ship with a long life ahead of her and maintained an even strain.
After finishing the drydock tests I gave her a hand wash with some Surf City Garage Wash-n-Wax and made all preparations to get underway. Quartermaster, set an open course for The Virgin Sea! (or Texas Motor Speedway in this case.)
