in position for the lift

This morning we drove over to Mahone Bay to sail the beautiful Bel Canto out into the Atlantic ocean and then hang a right to Lunenburg Harbor to position the boat for the big lift tomorrow morning.

This is the little lighthouse at the mouth of the Lunenburg harbor, below.

Tomorrow morning the hydrolic lift will drive to this slip, straddle it, drop huge straps into the water and under the boat, then lift it up and settle in onto braces set up in the storage area. We managed to get the boat into the proper slip first try, thanks to Jon's sailing and navigating expertise. She's tied and tethered safely for the night.

She is ideally situated for tomorrow's big event.
