When we are in the area, we often eat at the pier at Port San Luis. (http://www.oldeportinn.com/) There is a dry dock there, were people can take their boats out for repair, storage. or land transport. How do they get a boat out of the water? Well, I'll tell you.

The blue thing is a moving vehicle. I don't know what its real name is, but I am going to call it a hoist. Here it is in the dry dock area.

The boat on the left, at the floating dock, is going to be taken out of the water.

The boat will come down to this dock and the hoist will move over and around it on those side tracks.

Straps are put under the boat and it is lifted out of the water.

The brown clumps are barnacles. The owner has his work cut out for him.

That's some great info on moving a sail boat. I work for a laguna moving company, so I am almost in the same field, "moving."

Thank you. That was an oldie. I almost forgot about it.
