Blanchard Restoration: The Haulout
by Sarah Szabo
Blanchard Restoration Video Series
The Haulout is the first step to any boat restoration. It is at this point that the boat is removed from the water and the boatwright gets his first look at what work will need to be done.
In this video our red Blanchard is being haulout at our South Lake Union (SLU) Boatshop using our new lift system that was installed thanks to The Association of General Contractors of Washington and their generous partners. This is the first time we have ever been able to haulout a Blanchard at this shop, watch it happen in the video.
The red Blanchard will be waiting in our SLU Boatshop until July 6th, when our crowdfunding campaign ends and we have raised the money to restore her back to top shape.
Come down to SLU and check her out! You can see what a Blanchard looks like out of the water and how much we need your support to get her back into the fleet.
Find out how you can support her restoration and get some awesome perks at the same time!
