Pack Early for Christmas


When Barrabas was brought ashore for the winter, all moveable gear was removed and the mast unstepped. It is seen here after being carefully wrapped and sealed in heavy plastic sheeting. The radar scanner has been left on its mast mountings and is also heaving wrapped in plastic. Evenly supported on wooden pallets, the mast was lifted and carried to a warehouse in which to wait out the deep freeze of the Alaskan winter, ready for Adrian to unwrapped next summer
