It has begun.
Sea Bird was hauled by the good folks at Deaton Yacht Service in Oriental, NC. She was washed and blocked and awaits her repairs. Eagerly.
Thanks to my buddy Rob for the help moving her. I was worried that I had forgotten everything about driving a boat, but we had an uneventful, if short, passage. Even if we had to wait for a trawler who had run aground in the channel, as well as another sailboat who was coming in with a red engine light.
This is what it looks like from the cockpit if you have REALLY screwed up when navigating.
Let the mayhem begin...
