Haul Out on Nelson Slipway
Haul out 2013 – Nelson Slipway
A thoroughly hassle free lift on a railway. All very slow and gentle. Once the beams are correctly positioned beneath the bulkheads the cradle is pulled out of the water and shunted around the yard just like Thomas the Tank Engine.
Waiting to haul as the trolley is lowered down the rails.
Safely out of the water
Being shunted around on tracks everyone onboard
A beardy bottom – all comes off easily with the pressure washer.
Darryl cleaning up the bay
We’re out to clean the bottom, change saildrive boots, repaint the front beam and davits Doesn’t sound like much so we should be back in the water in six days – maybe.
