On the hard

Last night the cosy anchorage turned out to be an area where anchoring was prohibited, as a port sheriff informed us late at night. He insisted we had to move away, not considering our protests that we weren’t able to move without an engine. It took us half an hour of discussion and setting a stern anchor to move a few metres further away from the channel to satisfy him… This morning we had another few nervewrecking moments being towed by a tug to the far too narrow seeming concrete bay of the travel lift. But we made it unharmed and now Pitufa’s sitting on the hard, awaiting belly scratching (sanding), new make-up (antifouling) and of course shaft bearing repairs.
