Nature’s dry dock

File this under ” the things you see” category.   Snapped this in Townsville and thought it was a rather unique way to clean the hull of your boat.

    Not sure if that is a “bugger” moment or pure genius. Watch out though, FBJ will be passing by with his spirit level ……

      Genius using the tide to maximum advantage I’d say.

      As it’s in the ” things you see ” category the horizon doesn’t matter in my book. 😉

    PS I like this colour scheme better.

    We just had to do this exact thing with True North as Austal did not fit the locking screws in the prop well enough and the Prop fell off a couple of weeks ago!

    We waited for the appropriate tide and beached it on the twin keels and then swapped the prop with our spare one…pretty cool eh!

    I will ask the boat if they have any!
