You are lucky if she dried up that quickly. There are a couple of very pretty little carvel planked folkboats near me that have house hold sump pumps mounted in them and are plugged in all summer long and still occasional run.
That is just from being out for the winter. However I notice the owners are never in a rush to get them back into the water. A couple of other friends with wooden boats leave then in as long as possible in the fall and then get them back in early in the spring. It seems to help.
