Pulled the Sticks and Didn't Break Anything !

Today was the day to pull the sticks and move Oh Joy into the boathouse. She looks funny bare.



The main is huge and heavy. It took four healthy young men to carry to the barrels.



I've never seen the masthead from this angle, interesting...



It was a tight fit. She's supposed to be 38'4" LOA but she's actually 40'.



I think I'm gonna like having her in here.





She's knocking at the door.

Hey, these guys up here at THIS yard are very good, very cautious. They didn't rush anything and asked me if I thought the spreaders were strong enough to support the main before they pulled it. When I said I had no clue, they routed the line under the lower attach points to make sure. None of that BS you went through Scott...
