|Moondance on the Hard|
We are still living aboard Moondance, but we are in the boat yard getting lots of work done.
Just imagine... a 32,000+ lb sailboat backing into a small chute, having a sling placed around the hull, slowly lifted out of the water, and rolled across the yard.

It is a very strange sensation riding on Moondance as it was lifted out of the water. Kind of like an E-Ticket ride at Disneyland, but much more expensive!

We have a big list of projects to finish up before we head south, but have complete faith that Bob, Rafa, and the crew of Total Yacht Works will take excellent care of us.
- having the bottom scraped and painted
- replacing the shaft and rebuilding the cutlass bearing
- removing our forward fuel tank (too heavy in the bow)
- replacing a thru-hull
- and lots of other exciting stuff that Doug is working on
The good news, as soon as we are back in the water, we start sailing South. Yippee! We are soooo ready to start the next phase of our adventure!
