Re: We Are In La Rochelle

Thanks again for all the kind words! We're still in La Rochelle and are keeping our fingers crossed that today is the final day of work on the boat. We were hoping to take advantage of a weather window over the weekend to leave for Spain, but we needed some additional troubleshooting for our watermaker. So since we're still here, we figured we'd take advantage of the huge tides to beach the boat again and get the rope cutters installed that just arrived.

It's kind of nerve wracking to purposely beach the boat on an asphalt ramp, but it looks pretty cool when she's out of the water!
