AB on the Hard at Westland Marina

10 December 2012 | westland
Dean - cloudy - wind - storms to the north
Busy day today, here at Westland.
Yesterday we dropped the Yankee (heads'l) off the headstay, and stored it under the dinghy cover on the deck.

Today we disconnected the headstay at the roller furler mechanism, and eased the baby stay with the quick release device.

All this was done so that Westland's travel lift could "pick" us from the front (bow in at the take out slip). (the last time we hauled out here Westland lifted us stern first, but to do that we had to lower all the "STUFF" on the aft deck of the AB (radar, solar panels, etc. which was a real PAIN)!!!

Anyway, by 10 AM the AB was in the slings of the travel-lift, and being pressure-washed.

Both Susan and I were shocked at the lack of barnacle, and growth on the bottom. NICE!!!

We did have a small length of line wrapped around the propeller blades... No telling how long that's been on there... IF there was a crab-pot connected to the line... the cutter on the shaft cut that loose.

SO...we're on the hard, at the very back of Westland Marina... tucked in to a long line of sailing vessels, doing the same thing we are doing...

susan and I took our bikes and rode to the Library; about 2 miles one way; Nice ride...

On the way back, we stopped at an RV dealer and inquired about prices... and available styles.

Tonight (actually this afternoon) there was a tornado touch-down in county north of here... but so far, we've just had wind, and clouds....
We've got 120V power, and water available here at the site; ... SO... let the work begin !!!!
