[Maryanne]Well we are hauled out again. This time to have another coat of bottom paint to replace some of the paint that disappeared earlier than expected. The good news is we don't have to pay for the work. The bad news is that (once again) we discovered more voids in our hull. This time one of them is at a through hull - very worrying (Aghhhh!) - and of course we will have to pay to have that repaired.
The weather since we arrived in Norfolk has moved from Summer to Fall/Autumn, and now we have a Nor'easter set in for a few days - enough rain, and an exceptional high tide, to flood the boat yard we are in. We're keeping an eye on things and don't expect it to get high enough to float us (Let's hope we got that maths correct). We will of course have to pull out our wellies!
With exceptionally heavy rain today we just loafed in the dry boat, but the previous day we did a WHOLE LOAD of jobs from the maintenance list; all made easier with the boat out of the water: changing the drive leg oil, greasing the through hulls, cleaning and waxing the hulls, that kind of thing (Oh the boat life!).
