Re: Hull Inspection

I have seen a Tanzer 22' on a trailer. Easy enough to clean the bottom on a trailer, if you've got one.

Re: Hull Inspection

Canal boatyard offer a 1 hour haul in slings for $125

Might save you a nasty surpise.

What about drying it out against a wall or scrubbing post for a cheaper option. Looks like you have enough tidal range to do this.

Re: Hull Inspection

Most marina's with a travel-lift will do a shorthaul & powerwash for $8/ft. It's worth the couple extra bucks to look at the hull, inspect the thru-hulls, prop/shaft/zinc and have a thorough cleaning; more than what a diver can give you. It's more of the peace of mind of being able to personally put your eyes on the hull and see what's going on.
