Haul Out

We arrived at the yard this morning at high tide, and by 10:00 we were set up in  the cradle. The specs say our boat should weigh 24,500 lbs, but the travelift operator said she weighs 31,000 lbs! We have taken lots of weight out (two air conditioners and the 220 converter), and the masts is out, so how can that be?
We plan to check the cutlass bearing, sand and paint the bottom, put on new zincs, and polish the topsides.

Then we can put her back together and finally go sailing again!
