Haul Out Delivery

Haul Out Delivery

Departure:  Clipper
Arrival:  Berkeley Marine Center, Berkeley
Distance (nm): 12
Engine Hours: 2.5
Crew & Guests:  Julian, Colin
Weather: A bit grey, but some wind (enough)


Up early and off to the boat to get her over to Berkeley for hauling out.  A big day!  with tide against us and an appointment with the travel lift we anticipated a motor, but with a nice breeze brewing, it was time to unfurl the Genoa and get us an extra couple of knots.  It was a nice sail over and with just about the Bay to ourselves (except for the odd ferry and barge) it was very peaceful early on a weekday.

Arriving at Berkeley involved tying up on a small remaining length of the fuel dock, and then backing Boundless (always a treat) down a narrow fairway and into the haul out area, executed (even if I say so myself) to perfection.

We successfully got all this accomplished before the rain which was forecast for about 1:00pm, and sure enough, as soon as the boat was chocked up, the skies opened.  Sometimes things work out well.
