                                                                      The last day

 

Friday the 16th January 2009, dawned wet, cold and drizzly.

We removed all the borrowed gear from the boat and when we had her upright and steady, marked the waterline with a pen.

This is necessary, as the waterline where it crosses the chine up forward, is always difficult to get right.

The photos we have will give us the exact lines, and before she goes back in these will be painted on.

The trailer duly arrived, and after many adjustments, we found the right settings for the supports, and she has been settled down for the duration.

The next time afloat will be early May, when we have a month available to us in Hythe Marina.

If you want to try her out, let us know closer to the time and I am sure we will be able to accommodate you.

We hope that you have enjoyed this week with us, and look forward to more news as we progress.
