Haulin’ Outs

We just came off a successful haul-out this week.  Thankfully, in this climate, we can keep our boats in the water year round, but every few years we have to haul-out for maintenance and new bottom paint.

This was our first haul-out since purchasing TRUE.  With the help of our good friend, Brando, we were able to stay on schedule, even adding a few projects along the way.

We repaired some a few blisters on the hull, filled and glassed some obsolete thru hulls, and put fresh paint on the bottom.  While those projects cured, we took advantage of the sunshine and painted the decks!

It was a heap of work for three days on the hard, but we got it all done and the good ship is looking great!

Big thanks to Brando for his amazing willingness and hard work, to Ivaylo and Canal Boatyard, and to Katherine and Tristen for their help in the 11th hour!
