To quote the message as delivered to me:

Brownell Walker Stevens Thomson was launched November 8 at 10:25 am. Displacement 8 lbs 3 oz, length overall 23", powered by a twin lung howler. Everyone is fine. They'll be ashore for further inspections until the 14th when they expect to transfer operations to their home port of Monhegan Island.

I'm so pleased. I've been waiting for this for a long time. Which startles me.
