Ready for re-launch
AViVA is still wrapped up
Back into the Water
AViVA hoisted off the trailer and put back into the water. My job was to check that the new speed paddle wheel fitting was not leaking. It wasn’t but a small leak was noticed near to the cooling water intake. Seems that a screw had corroded in situ.
Boat was lifted out and repaired while she dangled.
AViVA was hoisted out of the water and onto her trailer.
I must say, I always find this operation very nerve racking:
Also: Hull pressure washed. Fenders are off and ready for a scrub. Batteries now at home, ready for a maintenance charge. Anti-freeze in the waterways... so, all set for the winter.
