Lookfar lifted. Tidemill office behind the bow. The green car has all my picnic gear spread out next to it
 20-40 hrs: Up an hour earlier than usual to go to Tidemill - the boat was due to be lifted and the repair finished. Sat in the sun (and tidied the car) whilst the crane did other things. It was hot and still and quiet - one of those summer mornings.

The underside - showing the new gasket and the refurbished plate holding it in.
Then - the slot gasket was done and ( after the picture) I patched the anti-fouling. Launched after lunch and did nothing much else for the rest of the day, apart from lounging in the cockpit. It clouded in the afternoon  and a cold wind came in - but still shorts-weather. The deck is dirty and the inside needs to be sorted out - but we are at least back in the water.
