Barrabas is lifted and Adrian discovers electric clothing


August 14 and Barrabas was lifted out of the water by crane without unstepping the mast. A difficult lift and a crane operator was flown in from Anchorage to perform the lift successfully. This greatly speeded the process of replacing the bearing and returning Barrabas to the sea. Once ashore, her hull was also cleaned and coated with industrial anti-foul formulated for the local waters. While this was happening smoothly, Adrian met another yachtsman and discovered electric clothing.
