There she is, getting lifted from the water. It's just an unnatural sensation, seeing your boat floating... on air.
There was a bit of ice damage at the water line but for the most part, even the anti-fouling held up very well. The black you see is the last coat we put on 7.5 years ago before launching.
She's a heavy boat. at 44,000 lbs, it looked almost as though the wheels on the travel lift were going to bust.
