|On the hard - life 12 feet up!|
Two nights ago, as we were getting ready for bed, the wind clocked in at 32 knots and we heard several disturbing sounds. Out we popped into the cockpit to check, as did our neighbours on either side. Everyone had flashlights on and were checking for loose items which could or were in the process of being blown off the deck. Our neighbour Tony quipped he had to 'put a reef in the ladder' as he secured a second line to the extension ladder which had tried to escape its' ties. Today has been calmer, although we can see the results of the dust which was blown in from the dry, dusty hills to the north and west of us.
INTREPID II moved from the marina dock early Tuesday morning to the fuel dock to be ready for a 9 a.m. haul out, which was not to be. The slip used for the travel lift has not been dredged for some time and was not 7 feet deep everywhere. So we waited, along with SV CaSTaway until the tide started to come in. Finally INTREPID II was lifted out about 2:30 pm, finishing up by 3:45 pm. Then it was CaSTaway's turn.
