"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 27 - Great Bridge, VA

Haul Out
Atlantic Yacht Basin

The main activity today was having the boat hauled out. We wanted the bottom cleaned and painted. It’s been two years since we had her painted and it still looked great. Lots of dirt from sitting at a slip for six months, but the paint was in good shape. The yard pressured washed the bottom and set her up on blocks where they will sand and paint the hull.

I’ve seen the boat hauled out four times now…including the survey and it’s still very impressive to me. It really is something to see a big boat taken out of the water. Boat yards move these boats around like little toys…no big thing to them.
