Boatyard - Raising Watermark

Entering the boatyard, Watermark is completely in his hands, as she is slowly drawn up the ram and raised clear of the water.

Emergency Landing at the Boat Yard for Watermark

At 2am the Bilge Alarm sounded and seawater began flooding into Watermark's engine room.  I stayed awake throughout the night running the pumps.  In the morning, we made a dash to the boatyard.  Once Watermark was raised out of the water and her hull could be checked below the waterline,  the leak was quickly repaired.  We were happily back at our mooring within a few hours, with no damage done.
