Late last month I arranged to have the boat hauled out of the water for maintenance and modifications. Yacht Club Argentino was very kind in letting me use their member's haulout facilities. In this picture, the keel has been lifted most of the way up, so the hull is not far off the ground. The use of old barrels and pieces of wood to support the boat out of the water (instead of adjustable jackstands chained together) is how things are done here (there are a lot of boats here, so it must be adequate).
