Haul Out - Completed!

Besides completed, we didn't have any unexpected "surprises".  Which is always good news!
Great view from the hard

Plus, it only took 3 days.  That's our fastest haul out (and cheapest) ever.

Life out of water requires climbing ladders...

A Big Thanks to Kiti and Yuve Marine for keeping everything going well and on schedule.

Besides having our bottom sanded and applying 2 coats of antifouling paint, they waxed and polished the hull.
Back in the water - yeah!

Moondance looks wonderful!

Mo's team at work - no ladder required
Plus, Thanks to the staff at Vuda Point Marina for keeping Moondance safe and her crew happy.

To Mo's crew for making the haul-out as stress free (as possible).
Lovely Ladies!

And to the office staff, Nikki and Maria, for taking such wonderful care of us - as always!

Doug tackled a few projects while we were out of the water - like shining up the prop, greased the thru-hulls, replaced zincs, patched the dinghy, and lots of little stuff.

He was a busy guy!  My job, sanding, painting, and hauling.  Oh boy!
Sunset Bar - our favorite!

During the haul out, we got to spend some quality time at our favorite Fiji Bar - the Sunset Bar.  Great staff; great food; great view.

And a great gathering place for the Yachties at the end of the day, plus love their specials - like Happy Hour, 2 for 1 pizza night, and more.

Experts at work

What do the Yacthies do when they close the Sunset Bar for the night? Throw a BBQ - why not!
Yachtie BBQ - always a good group

Great company and conversation and lots of food.

They are a good group and we are looking forward to seeing most of them out at Musket Cove for the Holidays.
Karen (and Cheryl) helping us out again

Now, we are back at Port Denarau Marina re-grouping and provisioning.

We hope to head to Musket Cove on Wednesday - Christmas is almost here.  Yeah!

PS:  A very special Thank You to our good friends Cheryl and Karen on s/v Interlude IX who are always there to help us when we need it - and always with a big smile!
