Bronte Outer Harbour Marina - Boat Launch Day for Ronin

The most commonly heard expression amongst boaters this time of year is ' Have you got your launch day yet?'

Today was launch day for Ronin at Bronte Outer Harbour Marina. After a long winter sitting on dry land, she's afloat on her water home once more.
