Tucked in and ready to go.
Fifteen minutes on the freeway and Madsu will be at her winter home beside our house.
It’s always grey, and usually a lot stormier, on haul-out day.
We had to push quite a few logs out of the way a the moorage – the tide was high and there must have been a Northerly last night, because Sewell’s was littered with logs – lots of big ones.
A little over an hour later, Madsu was on the hard at Thunderbird. The lift crew there is outstanding and they always make my day.
Madsu is still sporting her doubled up lines – a series of gales last week rocked the docks at Horseshoe Bay.
I had to replace a stern line that parted due to the surging – opted to up-size while I was at it. From now until I pull the boat out of the water later this month I think I’ll keep the lines doubled up – we seem to be getting lots of those big winds from the North (which is pretty normal for this time of year).
