October is a sad month for Toronto Sailors as it’s the end of our sailing season here which only begins in May..time for the boys (and girls) to put away their toys for the winter.
Cradle layout is a labour intensive endeavour which takes us a day to accomplish.
We run two tractors and work starts at 8 am. Using a chart of the East and West Yard which shows the location of each cradle, our first task is to start lifting the stacks of cradles, five or six at a time, and moving them to their general location in either the East or West yard.
