Here's mine, the 1975 Capitol Yachts Newport 28 "Free Spirit."

First up: the fall before I bought her, in September 2006, with her fresh new bottom paint, :




And here she is just pulled out of the water to be powerwashed and scraped, in July 2007:



Mmmm, foamy!

I had her pulled again this summer and it wasn't near as bad. I'll be putting some more fresh paint on her in the spring.

Here's mine. A 1986 C&C 33 MKII. She had been on the hard for three years prior to our purchasing her. The owner had passed and she had been sadly neglected. We spent about six months getting her ready to launch. We buffed out the hull, sand blasted the bottom, applied new bottom paint, new name graphics, painted the mast, replaced life lines, rebedded hatches, installed new bimini and sail covers, re-covered interior upholstery, refinished teak/holly sole, installed A/C unit, new stereo, speakers, VHF, TV and DVD, and countless other things, too many to list.
Needless to say, Mucho dollars and sweat. But it was worth it.
Here are before and after pics.

Latest pic, this storm only dropped 18". We haven't had a good 2 or 3 footer for a few years now...

As hard as it gets

A couple of "on the hard" photos from BR's transcontinental trip in 2006.

The trailer frame is 4 inches off the road.



This is about as "high and dry" as you can get.

You really should have a v-stand at the bow. If you were to go aboard to work on her and went to the very bow, chances are good that the boat might start to tip forward if you don't have a v-stand there.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
