You have to pay for the haul out/haul in; lay days; plus the actual work.

Like having the bottom sanded and painted, replacing the cutlass bearing, and the really expensive part (drum roll please) replacing 9 seacocks. Ouch!
But, it had to be done. Our seacocks were over 30 years old and we were afraid to touch them (not good).

Keehi Marine Center was very professional and took good care of us.
Restrooms, but no shower facilities, and a mini-mart with a really old grumpy guy - avoid him.
|The spooky part!|
Bonus - L&L Drive Inn (close by) has wonderful egg and bacon (tons of bacon) breakfast sandwiches for $3.40. Worth a stop!
La Mariana Sailing Club is close by: food ok; drinks ok; service very slow... But, we had a great time celebrating with our dock buddies!

They worked all weekend to get us back in the water and Moondance didn't leak - yeah!
|Back in our slip|
Glad we can cross that off the list and get busy on the rest of the stuff.
We are very grateful for having our friend's boat to stay on during all of this, plus their vehicle. It made life so much easier and less stressful.
Thanks Ed and Karen!
And now, the really good news, I am retired - again.
Life just keeps getting better and better and our sailing date closer and closer - oh my!
