Re: Haul out woes

I think it would be a good idea to drill holes as needed and then let it sit over the winter to dry out. Do the fix in the spring when you have made it as dry as possible. I would be happier doing it with the rudder in the basement if possible.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
