This morning at 8am sharp we had Dusky Dolphin in the lifting pen at the sailing club, and the waiting lifter put the slings under the right places (directed by Rob!) and she was hauled out of the water.
It was straight to the wash-down bay, and you can see the before and after of this process!
As we walked beside her to the bay, my nose remembered the ocean-y smell she always has when she comes out of the water. It had gone with all the marine growth after her wash-down:-(
Various workmen and Rob and I will be busy doing the annual maintenance on her for a few weeks now…
