Thursday (5-26-16) I took LyonsRoar to Playboy Marina to do the scheduled service on both outboards. On the way across Port Everglades I passed the Yacht Transport boat that squats in the sea to allow yachts headed to Europe to drive onto custom cradles and ride piggyback across the Atlantic. It was a perfect example of how much a boat can cost an owner when it’s out of the water and not even being used.
An odd ship with one purpose, to tote your boat to a far off cruising waters.
That’s a boat load of very expensive boats on their way to play in the Med.
When your boat lives in the water and you don’t own a trailer, you have to go to the yard to service your motors. It’s always a little tense when she first clears the water.
It’s a great feeling after inspecting the bottom and underwater gear when no unexpected problems appear.
After a full day of draining lower gear case grease, engine oil, changing oil filters and fuel/water separator filters comes refilling all those expensive fluids. I was lucky enough to have no leaks and she went back into the water the next morning where boats belong. LyonsRoar is rearing to go again.
