Boat yards are never fun but when its an unplanned and unwanted haul out its even less enjoyable. Because Trade Runner was damaged in a collision this work needed to be done before I could continue on to Indonesia.

I was alone for the most part but the work went by very well, better than I had even expected and the best part was that the damage to the bow was no way as bad as I'd first thought! The broken daggerboard came together very well also and is now as good as new.
The collision was a major bummer but the silver lining was than now Trade runner has new antifoul, new cutlass bearing and dripless seals, a patched up paint job and many other small improvements.

She's ready for the long voyage ahead.

Thanks for watching.
