Pre-launch job list = long hard days working at height!
We had a list of jobs to do while she was out of the water and our new home on stilts would move about in the wind. It was a little unnerving to be so high up from the ground when working on the deck - it was also hard to sleep with boat squirming around in her cradle, we could feel she was desperate to be back in the water too!
Our list of must do jobs, some which we had identified but most born from the survey - had to be done before we could splash the boat (put her back in the water) so we made a scrum board with post it notes and started to work through them one by one!
Our friend Simon joined us for a few days and we quickly rattled through the list! Others jobs took a little longer as we had to wait between cure stages for epoxy or had to wait for replacement parts to be delivered before we could continue.
Ultimately after a few weeks work we had enough done and could book the lift in - Woohoo!
The next step would be the days sailing with the previous owner where he would walk us through some of the yachts unusual systems. We were both super excited to see our new home actually in the water!
