Frogwatch is on a distinguished road
I had my 28' 8000 lb S2 put on the hard in my side yard. She was hauled about 70 miles one way and was on the hard for three years while I started my business. It cost $150 for the haulout, $600 one way to my house. I bought used jackstands for $60 each which the hauler purchased back from me later for $40 each.
While she was there, I replaced the standing rigging, and replaced the 6.5 hp Yanmar 1gm with a 13 hp 2GM and bottom painting. There were other minor tasks as well.
Having her put back in the water was another $600 trip back to the water and another $150 trip in the water.
