Sacrifice the Keels!

What’s it like to have your floating home hauled out of the water before your eyes? Weird. Just weird. What if a sling breaks? You see that happen all the time on YouTube. What if they block it wrong and damage a bulkhead or put a hole in the hull?

What if the damage that our divers back home told us about was really bad? How long would we be out of the water? Could Just Cats fix it? What if…

None of that happened, thank goodness. The sacrificial keel Gods were on our side that day. There was no damage, just paint missing from the caulk. That’s normal. But we had to have it checked out before heading across the stream.

Still, seeing her on the hard makes me uneasy, and I don’t like it. Maybe I’ll get used to it? I don’t know.
