Flying Bahia

A couple of weeks ago, I had asked if anyone had experience with using a crane to take out a Bahia 46.
The nearest yard with a large enough travel lift is two states away.
I need to work on the "achilles heal" of my sailboat: the saildrives.
F.P. and Aeroyacht were nice enough to provide me with drawings for the haulout straps. It was perfectly balanced. Here are some photos.

Awesome!! So it can be done. Did you get the straps made up yourself or did the crane company provide them? Would you be willing to share the drawings? Great photos, thanks !!

Re: Flying Bahia

Here are some usefull drawings provided by Gregor Tarjan at Aeoryacht (Very helpfull) and FP Home Offices.
I drew the drawing for the Crane operator and Boat yard to get things going. The Crane operator provided a 100 Ton Crane, 12" w. straps, 50' L.
each and a 60' cable.
This size Crane was just large enough for where we had to put the boat.
The boat came in at 22,000 pounds on the Crane's computer. I was surprised sinc the boat was stripped down for the haul.
Not too happy with the marina boatyard (part of the largest chain in the Northeast) that had hauled, put new zincs on in July of this year. Prop was missing along with the zinc.

Re: Flying Bahia

Excellent, thanks for that Arch, it just gives us another option.

BTW what sort of antifoul do you use? Is it copper based?

I certainly hope you didn't haul just to replace zincs & prop. A diver would be much cheaper.

What model saildrive?

Re: Flying Bahia

No we are not just replacing the zinc and prop.
The boat was just hauled in July for a paintjob and new zincs.
We do this every two years. Otherwise we keep the boat in the water behind the house.
Whatever paint the yard used, we will not be using. The boat has never been on the hard since we have owned it.
We have SD31 saildrives and they stink.
We already have replaced both one year after purchase (1999).
One snapped off 400 miles off Cape Hatteras on our annual trip to Florida. The other one had cracks and we had to put into Beaufort, N.C. for three months waiting for parts from Yanmar. Apparently, the initial surveyor never removed the paint on the saildrives to give them a good inspection.
I woulde love to replace both engines with electric motors and genset, lithion ion batteries, but we have no idea of the cost. I imagine it would be pretty steep.
I also plan on replacing all the hoses, plastic thru-hulls with real bronze ones, pulling the starboard engine for major overhall, replacing the backend of our generator.
Best regards
Thank God my wife Toni is as crazy about sailing as I am.
