Boat Haulout Time turned into a month on the hard

What a very interesting haulout it was! The entire drive train was pulled and replaced all new. An unseen problem was discovered: poor engine alignment caused a hole in the shaft log (hidden under the packing gland hose) and that was a major repair! I had to wait weeks for the fiberglass work to be done. Wanna see some  of my “before” and “after” photos? It was a difficult “drive train” install in 8 1/2 inches.

S V Pinga looked real good with her wax and paint refreshed, until a month in the boatyard covered her with grit and stains. Oh well. I also installed a new tiller and a NMEA2000 speed/depth transducer.
