After nearly two years, Utopia badly needed a new bottom paint, especially after her visit up a river in Brazil. We hoped we would only be out of the water for a week, as it is not easy living on the hardstand with or even without kids, but three weeks later we were finally done. A lot more expensive than the last haul out in Thailand but hopefully that means the bottom paint will last longer. We did enjoy the doubles, rotis and air conditioning while at the boat yard.
Its always a little nerve wracking watching your home get lifted out of the water
