Sorry to hijack your thread.
Your comment about the Liberator caught my attention as my mate is working with the volunteer group here in Werribee, Melbourne, restoring a "Lib" for ground running display.

|Boasun||For a heavy vessel you may want to drop and anchor straight out from your slip and heave around on the anchor rode to haul out from the slip. Just be sure that your winch or your back is up to hauling that vessel clear from the slip. Also helps if your guests do the grunt work here.|

I'm not so much unsure...it's more that I'm very aware of my lack of experience. As it turns out I'm now in a slip facing the opposite direction.
How dare the wind switch!!! I'm just starting to get this one figured out.
The reason my starter boat is 36' is because I couldn't afford 41'.
