Last Haul-Out prior to Great Loop (hopefully!!)

I wanted to post a couple of last shots of the swim platform before the boatyard begins attaching it to Makin Memories. We will attach the cleats and telescopic swim ladder as soon as the main platform is attached to the transom. We plan on installing the DinghyRamps once we can perform a final measurement to make sure all fit according to plan (d-rings in the optimal position, etc.)!! Afterwards, the ladder from the aft deck to the swim platform will be modified and reattached and all should be ready. We have a few other items that will be addressed in the engine room and a few minor cosmetics on the deck and hull to complete, and then ash  her and then the cleaning and packing for January can take place





Version 2Makin Memories is scheduled for haul-out today; weather permitting. It is exciting for both Jean and me as we anticipate the final touches in preparation for departure in January. The boat is not the only item that needs attention in preparing for a journey of a year’s duration. The house, the cars, banking, to name a few need attention too. This weekend we spent time reviewing household operations with the couple that will be moving into our house while we are away, as well as packing and storing. With two months left before we depart, it is incredible how much there is still to do!
