Even Randy the manatee was hanging out watching all the activity.
Then Milton's Capri Sunrise was launched and taken over to the dock. It looks so precarious...
Not ready to sail is the Abaco Rage. Although the boat itself spent the summer on a mooring in Hope Town Harbor, the mast and boom have been on the ground in the boatyard. Dave went to check the mast for any rot and after tapping around he found a nasty rotten spot where the upper rigging chain plates attach to the mast. He started digging around and found this huge spot with ants running for their lives.
He has it all marked as to where the chain plates go, then chainsawing the area back to good wood and trimming it back to square it off.
Stay tuned for more reports of how that project progresses!
