Time to haul the boat out

100_4689

After many upgrades and customizations during the last five years it was time to haul the boat out of the water again. Dragonfly had been through a number of storms during that time and sustained a fair amount of damage as well as a build up on her bottom of a large amount of mussels and barnacles. After a good scraping and pressure washing of the bottom she was placed on stands in dry-dock at the boatyard. With deck cleats ripped off and rails broken she was in a sad condition. Also, in the last few years dry rot on the deck has been an on-going problem making repairs a necessity. A lot of work to do over the coming months!
