Well finally it happened, Trudie put her foot down and she was booked to be hauled, as you re all probably aware unless you are in Mane or the Chesapeake, lets face it people, let me rephrase that BOAT YARDS do NOT like wood boats!.

However as we found out if you have enough determination and more importantly money you can do anything in Fort Lauderdale so we were set and the cost!!!!!! I hope you are sitting down, haul & launch three days on the hard and one coat of bottom paint rolled with NO sanding as we had re done the hull $1,900.00 it gets better lay days were $1.75 PF/ PD that’s right $77.00 a day total of lay days $3,465.00 WOW

And I had two full time employees working ten hours a day for six days a week to get the job finished in six weeks, on the up side she looks fabulous, we are still working on the masts only 16 coats on the one side so far starting with the finish coats tomorrow, then we can turn them over and start all over again! Now tell me again why do I have a wooden boat? That’s right as Trudie keeps reminding me she is part of the family.

Well enough bitching and moaning, she surveyed great so hopefully we can get re-insured before we leave for defiantly the Bahamas this winter and hopefully Belize next year, not planning too far out “because you know haw things can change”

Hope you like the new look, hope to see you all on the water really soon

Fair winds and full sails

Roger & Trudie
