De nuevo a la yarda del trabajo
Back to the work yard. Dick has to back into the bay. The travel lift awaits our return.
I thought it was a heart-pounding experience. As you can see, there's very little clearance. There were four people onboard, Dick at the helm and three of us pushing the boat away from the walls when the boat got too close. Three others on land used ropes to control the boat once we were inside the bay. The travel lift slings got caught under the rudders at one point - another event to keep the heart pumping.
And so . . . we are back in dry storage. Dick must assess the work that needs to be done, decide what parts of the process he can do and which are better done by hired help, order materials and arrange for pick up in the USA. Sigh.
