Our New Expedition Yacht
A tough aluminum sailboat to explore high latitudes
UPDATE 3 OCTOBER 2003:
We spent a week doing systems trials, and were very pleased that everything went well -- engine trials, keel lifting up and down both on the electric winch and the backup hand winch, rudder lifting up and down, anchoring, etc.
We even saw our first seal from Seal's deck ...
Then we began to prepare for our unconventional haul-out -- by scoot and wrecker truck -- to bring her home to the workshop for a winter of carpentry.
Launching the scoot and positioning Seal over it:
