Drying out

This morning the boat was hauled out and put on blocks for the winter. While this is kind of sad, (I hate to see any boat on the hard) it is also gratifying.
Just after the travellift had picked the boat out of the water, the marina crew powerwashed the bottom to get all the algae off. It was good to see the copper bottom looking bright and shiny. And the whole bottom appeared solid. I guess I did a pretty good job of building and sealing the bottom. Everything looks solid and new. Now it's a matter of winterizing the engine and getting a tarp over everything. One more weekend of work and she'll be ready to take on the winter.
Spring can't come too soon.
