Iona update

Iona has been moved into Richmond Boat Builders and her survey has commenced. The previous job of recaulking has not held up well and the hull will need a lot of attention. She also sports a moderate list of deficiencies: she has developed rot on wheelhouse sides and roof; her transmission is seized.

Here we see a crew pulling out her transmission. Though it only weighs 207 lbs (according to the manual) it is in a tight spot and is extremely awkward to manhandle. It comes out easily with a good come-along.
