Lift-Out Day – Monday 7 March 2022

Always a depressing day in the sailing year, today Bubble was lifted and taken to her cradle in the boatyard at Fleetwood for her annual maintenance. She’s in good shape so there are no major jobs to undertake, but in view of the imminent circumnavigation I will do a specially thorough job this year. In particular, in addition to the normal servicing, I will clean out the heat exchanger and change the hull anode – which gives additional protection to the saildrive leg – two jobs I’ve never done before.
