The main reason for taking Emilia out of the water was to remove all the old antifouling. As her home berth is in a fresh water lake, the city has banned all boats that do not have it removed.

I have painted the bottom with a two-part paint that will allow Emilia to either be lifted for a pressure washing from time to time or to be brushed off in a boat washer. For me personally, this is a much better solution than using biocides. It will keep the bottom cleaner.

After a nice but cold sail, we found a good spot for the night and anchored up.

Food and wine were served in the warm and cosy cabin.

This may seem non-Hanse related but those of you who have followed this thread from the beginning and didn't stop paying attention around page 28 or so, may remember that I wrote a "divorce song" on my boat while sailing her back from Norway in 2013. The song has survived any angst I might have felt at the time and the years after and I just recently put a new recording of it in a music video on YouTube. 

The lyrics are based on a true story. Watch it if you like, don't if you don't. Big smile
