Torrential rains during the night caused a lot of flooding, even on the docks, including two overturned motorboats - one at the dock and one at anchor. The one at anchor had two new 4-stroke outboards and was being salvaged by Husky as I was leaving Leverick's docks in the morning and they towed it to Nanny Cay to get the engines cleaned and serviced the same day.


Rainy North Sound The torrents of the night before had brought down a lot foliage and dirt from the hills, making the crystal-clear water of the North Sound opaque

Overturned powerboat The torrential rains during the night filled up this powerboat with so much water that it turned over and capsized and needed Husky to get it back afloat so that it could be towed to Nanny Cay and have the 2 engines serviced

Power washing Zanshin's bottom I'd not cleaned the bottom all season and there's quite a bit of barnacle growth despite the bottom paint. The power washer gets some of it off, but I'll have to do some scraping

Loosened Backstays on Zanshin The backstays on Zanshin need to be released in order for the travelift to get to the right position; so I used the time enroute to loosen them all the way

Lines flaked for the docks I've flaked the bow lines on the stanchions to make it easier to get them thrown ashore when going into the haulout pit
