Today we come out of the water on a trailer for the first time. Im mot sure how our boat will do on a trailer but I will include pics of the process when I put this post up. Its 7 am and i am drinking my coffee and contemplating the day ahead.
Here is my list of things to do today
Pull dingy up on davits
Put outboard motor on the rail
Don’t panic about boat on trailer
Read instructions on barrier coat paint to understand cure time and recoat time to have a better understanding of boat yard schedule.
Don’t forget to ask the yard to pressure wash the boat
Drill hole in boat to allow water to drain out of the skeg once in yard
Don’t panic about drilling a hole in the boat
Add more to the list of things to do
Drive the boat to the boat ramp where there will be at least 4 cruiser friends to catch lines( they volunteered ). Yes it should be an easy landing on the dock next to the boat ramp but now you have at least 4 friends to see me f…. up the landing…. dont f.. up….
Figure out why i feel like i should panic (as I put my thoughts together i was hoping the panic would ease….. not working)
Take pics to post …. of a “good enough” landing and haul out”
ETC….Because there is going to be more
Its a small list but as you can see there are a few hurdles
