Scrubbing up

Scrubbing up

After some time in the water there was a healthy (or should that be unhealthy!) growth of weed on Sea Bear's hull, slowing down her performance and manoeuvrability. It was time to take her alongside the scrubbing posts, wait for the tide to ebb away and give the bottom a good old clean. Its another of the advantages of a long keel that it makes this process a bit less worrying than it might be.
