Skeedeen Phase 6-38
I’d left Skeedeen in the shop for an extra week or two–much of which was holiday time–to allow time for me to frame, and the contractor to measure for and build, the winter cover. But now, she was headed to another location for indoor storage and, later in the year, the completion of the repower project. The cover had been built but not ever completely installed because of the boat’s departure, so the only photos I have are during the initial fitting process with the cover blank. To prepare for the boat’s departure, early in the morning I dismantled the winter frame, which went pleasingly quickly and well. I hoped it would always be so straightforward in years to come.
A little later in the morning, the transporter arrived to pick up the boat, and in short order she was on the truck and headed out. It was nice to see the paint job and especially the transom out in the daylight for the first time.
