More Haul-out Photos

On Sunday we finished the transom and launched the boat. I feel good about the whole experience but it makes the prospect of what is to come so much more real now. We are going to have to do some serious frame repair in about 6 months. The boat is still sea worthy now but if we were to get caught in a serious storm I would be worried. Check out more photos from the haul out!
 Boat out of the water
 Epoxy barrier coat on the transom
 Looking good

 Checked some fastener holes
 Removed a couple fasteners to inspect them for strength
 They both looked great. A little dirty but still strong.
The transom after we were finished. Obviously we are going to need to redo our topside paint next time...

The haul out was a great success and we learned a lot about our boat from the bottom up. Next haul out we will have a lot more work to do but I think it would have been overwhelming to try to get it all done at once. Not to mention too expensive and time consuming, but that will have to come eventually.
