After a one hour haulout for Steve D'Antonio to assess below the waterline, we stopped at another yard to pick up our 1/2" HT anchor chain. Here Jeff Owen of Yacht systems has just begun pulling out the heavy chain.
Our Hampton Yacht Specialist Scott Hauck joins in "the fun." What a guy!
The chain was attached to a line, which was tied off in the anchor locker. The chain was brought on board with the windlass. Now to get the 80kg anchor off Mahalo's cockpit and onto the deck. No mean feat for two guys. Oh to be young again. Or have a young back again.
You think Dustin, on the left, got the bad end of this deal?
It's time for the old heave-ho and I think Dustin learned something?
And the anchor comes aboard for Mahalo for the first time! When it got to the roller, we had to tighten the clutch on the windlass.
Back at the dock and looking good! This is going to be a great system.
