Hauled out - 3rd time lucky....

After 2 aborted attempts at motoring up the river to Shelter Island to haul out, we finally made it on Sunday, with thanks to 2 guys in a little powerboat who towed us the last 2 miles. Lots of engine troubles with water in the fuel and perhaps an air leak.

While in the boatyard we're going to be painting the topsides, bottom and putting in some new thru hulls (for watermaker, galley salt water, relocating a galley sink drain, replacing a head outlet valve which has seized up). Somebody else is going to do the repair to the fwd. crossbeam.
