Dharma Rose 1


Earlier, I moved the boat indoors; she had her own trailer, making this move, and future moving needs, quite convenient.  There was a bit of snow on deck from a storm a few days earlier, so I left the boat overnight to melt off before getting down to business.

The first thing to do was to remove the mast from its deck storage position, which I did with my gantry.  I stored the mast outdoors, where my rigging contractor would soon be able to access it for rigging replacement and other work as needed.

She was a little askew on the trailer, angled slightly fore and aft and listing to starboard, so I spent a little time straightening her up and leveling the boat side to side.    The project would begin in earnest after the holiday weekend.

Total time billed on this job today:  1.5 hours

0600 Weather Observation:  31°, cloudy, maybe a snowflake.  Forecast for the day:  Snow, 3-6″ expected
