It appears spring has finally graced Minneapolis, and that inspires me to do the sketchiest thing I do all year: Take Serenity out of the rafters.
You see, she spends all winter hanging from the rafters in my garage. All winter she waits for this day with anticipation, as I do with dread. On one hand, it means getting her back in the water. On the the other, I have to avoid death by falling boat.
First things first, I needed to take the casters off of the trailer, as they can gouge Serenity when they’re attached.
Then up into the rafters to attach the ratchet straps to the chain hoist…
Surprisingly, she made it down with very few problems. The largest of which being I had to turn the trailer around while avoiding the other stuff in the garage: motorcycles, bikes, and my roommate’s car.
Now to finish the sail I picked up from Polysail!
