Today the yacht went back into the water after two weeks of being raised on land to fix the dagger board. We are finally getting closer to end of our yard period, and consequently to being in the Caribbean for the winter!

The travel lift which takes the yacht, in slings, and deposits it into the water is a pretty impressive machine. Capable of lifting up to 400 tons, it is controlled by a small box held by the machine operator, who walks beside the travel lift to ensure its safe functioning.
