The SoS is out of the water...

It was kind of scary for us being that it was our first time hauling her out. But it went very smoothly and the guys at the yard didn't make fun of us too bad...haha
She's getting a bottom job, and a whole bunch of other things done including new props. They were in pretty rough shape!

I always like to stay away during the actual haul out and blocking. Then turn up when they start work.

Too nerve racking otherwise!

I find it too anxiety provoking to actually watch.

I wouldn't miss the haul for anything. If something happens I want to see it happen.

Greetings,
I too would want to be on site when being hauled as long as a cardiac medical facility was close by if they dropped her...

The only three times I saw a boat that I was linked to hauled it was during the survey so for obvious reasons I wanted to be there.

Nobody is hauling my boat out without me present. I know where the straps need to go and that I want spray rail blocks in place so that the straps aren't loading on the spray rails. If that last sentence didn't register with you, then there's no need for you to be there. And I certainly don't want it power washed or scraped until I can assess the growth on the bottom paint, running gear, transducers and through hull fittings. Yes I'm a little OCD. The good news is that they know me at the yard and would probably hand me the travel lift key if I said I wanted to do it myself.

If something were to go wrong, I want to be the one pointing the finger.....even if it's at myself.

Agree 100%. With certain narrower lifts, the yard has to use standoffs to protect the flared gunnels. No way am I going to delegate that.

Funny, we're the opposite. We're always onsite for haul and launch. We've done 10 Launches and 11 hauls over the years.

Our boat is currently up for sale. We want a larger boat. Our boat is insured for more than i could probably sell her at this point. The last couple of years, you can hear both the admiral and myself muttering under out breath..."Please Drop her, please, please please drop the @#$#% out of her!!!"

Yes, rest assured they're not going to drop it hard enough to total it.
