Well then, it's settled

All the W's are established.  We haul out this coming Thursday at 09:00 at Seaview West.  Roland and Tom are back to managing the West yard (we're fans), they have a new, larger Travelift and newly renovated Travelift dock, and, frankly, it is more convenient not having to traverse the Ballard Locks.

Well, that is if the weather cooperates.  We have hauled out in spite of the weather in the past, but not this time.  If there is a 20 kt crosswind, we will simply remain in our slip and reschedule.

Now it is our task to gather tools and supplies.  Our primary task while the boat is up on stands, and while the yard does the bottom,  will be to do a thorough job of buffing out and waxing the hull.  This is a job that is quite difficult to do from a dinghy, and it is a big job.  Ever painted your house?  How'd you like to buff it out and wax it?  Yeah, that big.
