Shediac and Home

Once in Shediac we called Jackie at Romeo's Marine and the haul out logistics fell into order. We used the day to clean the sails, lines, inside and outside of th boat, and get the sails off and the boom down. The winterizing of the water systems was completed. Daniel, the crane operator, stops by as he came to check on his sailboat and we set things up for the morning.  He was on the dock by 8 am and the mast was down by 9:00 and the slings were on the boat ready to hoist it to the trailer. Jacques showed up a few minutes later and the boat was on its way the Romeo's. Just like that! More cleaning, followed by more cleaning. We meet our my neighbour at Romeo's and he, "Garland" lent us his car to take a load to the post office and our stuff to the bed and breakfast and prebooked a taxi to take us to the Moncton airport at 5:30 am. With every thing done and the cockpit tarped to keep the snow out we headed downtown for some of La Costa's famous Shediac lobster poutine and our last blueberry beer.
