Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Boatyard Blues...

We are scheduled to haul the boat tomorrow morning.
Oh yipee.
Hopefully only on the hard 3 days.
Could be 5 days.
Could be more if it rains.
For once, I wish for NO rain.
And of course we have Tropical Storm Norbert, who is supposed to be Hurricane Norbert by tomorrow morning slowly sliding up the coast of Mexico...

This will be the first time to be hauled on a rail, not by a travel-lift.
Should be interesting...

Here we are getting put back in the water on our last haul-out.I always made sure I had to be at work when the boat was lifted or put back in.
Too scary for me.
Just not natural.
But I don't really have a job...
Sssooooooooo I will have to be there.
And help.
Yikes.

Just a quick bottom job this time! Out, in. Nothing like when my old Islander 44 was in the yard for 7 months drying out... ick.

Yep - insured. That was my job in the US - insurance broker... ick again.
