Salty 46

< Back to Salty


In the near future, I wanted the chance to test-run the new engine, and this need, along with other obligations requiring the inside of the shop, meant that, now that all the work was otherwise complete (excepting the new propeller shaft and engine startup), it was time to move Salty outdoors for storage and the duration of the final stages of the project.  The boat wouldn’t be leaving here for a couple months, so to ensure access to other boats in storage I set her down in an out-of-the way location, but readily accessible to the shop for the final work as needed.  I offset the jackstands so I could easily paint the last patches of the bottom.

Total time billed on this job today:  1 hour
