1982 Tartan 37
Just before she is splashed for the sea trial, mid summer 2005
These are from Spring 2008, prepping teak, new bottom paint, adding a new boot stripe, and applying name

She's a 1978 CT48
Pictures were taken in 2005 in Beirut Lebanon when I was very deep into the refit.
Port holes out...stanchions, pulpit and bow roller all off.
I just re installed the wooden rub rails.
The haul-out is a platform that is lowered and raised with 8 big hydraulic winches.

This is a great thread... i'm loving the photos. Whampoa... beautiful boat!
Here's "At Last" at Triton Yachts on the way to being put in the water. That's Paul in the photo... great guy and very professional.
About to splash... Rob Eberly doing survey work. I highly recommend him.

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.

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.

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