Out of the water for the first time since launching

Tenacity is now out of the water and sitting in the cradles that she last used during building back at Bolton School. She is out of the water for routine maintenance to her hull.

After about 2 and a half years of sitting in the water it was impressive to see that the Leighs antifouling had done its job and all that was needed was a quick jet wash to get rid of the green slime.

The job of lifting her out was largely dealt with by the staff of Glasson Basin Marina, who were excellent as always, the lift was slower than planned and ended up with us having to remove the mizzen mast in order to get Tenacity balanced in the boat lift.
Maintenance will start over the coming weeks on those jobs identified during the last season of use with school groups.
