Gemini 3200 on the Hard - Getting Ready for Transport

Now that the boat is on the hard, there are lots of things that need to be done before she is transported to Savannah. We've already removed the main sail and boom, emptied water tanks, and Bill has disconnected the wires leading up the mast.

We still have to mark all of the rigging, remove head sail, remove head sail furler, step the mast, remove the solar panels, remove the bimini, stow the fenders and dock lines, and wrap the mast at the very least to be ready for transport.

Things have been going smoothly with a few surprises along the way. The other day we found water in the port and starboard aft lockers and buoyancy chambers. This was an opportunity to get first hand experience with our manual bilge pump. We have a few ideas of where the water came from and will have the boat yard in Savannah to take a closer look.

By the way: With everything that has to be done to get the boat ready for transport, I haven't had time to work on my sewing projects. After the boat is in Savannah, I will resume work on the sun sacrifice.
