Thought all my blogger buddies might find it interesting to see what hauling out is like.
7:30 am Orion went into the ways.
The trades picked up so we bounced a bit.
They placed the slings under her belly and hoisted her up.
NOTE: Tooloose and Girl Kitty were in the forward cabin this whole time and none too pleased.
I could hear Tooloose yowling from where I was on the ground...The guys were asking, "What is that sound?"
This is Lo, the driver of the hoist. He is TOTALLY COOL!
Around and around the boatyard we go and where she stops is hopefully close to one of the portapotties...
Here we are up on the Jacks. Those of you who have read LOTTERY can see now why Keith joked about "being on the hard" and "putting jacks on and off"
How do we get into and out of our boat? Check out the 12 foot ladder to our swim steps off the aft.
Now visualize climbing down those at 10 pm to use the aforementioned portapotty...
Ya gotta love the boating life.
