I can try to get her moved to a marina not far from there and (hopefully) be able to do the work there, but it's not exactly a convenient location for DIY (it's about 2.5 hours, each way, from home).
isn't there a rule about borrowing a slip, that says the slip owner must help in all repairs necessary to get his slip back, or was it, he has the right to slip the lines any time he wants you gone.
it's one of those rules
any thing on a boat can be fixed with enough sweat and some money
those are nice boats worth fixing
its a sail boat, sail it home
