Alishan went on the Move for a Haul Out.

Alishan went On the Move.

All the way to Odo Yacht Harbor, here in Fukuoka.

Indeed she was due for a haul out.
The last time was in 2011, so Alishan was in need of:

New Bottom Paint,
New Zinc Blocks,
New PSS prop shaft seal,
Teak Deck Repairs,
and a Hull Buff.

The video shows it all:

Odo's boatyard MarineTech took care of most of it.

We only had to supply...The Funds  ;-}

The whole haul out went smoothly.
 But we (incl Nori and Wakame) are so happy it's all over again...
Happy to be back in the water.

Now, just wondering:
What will the world look like next time?

Trailing Mount Kosho, Fukuoka.

Early November is a right time to hit the mountain trails.
Nice weather, good temperature,
 awesome skies, pretty trees.

So as a final training for the Fukuoka GOOD JOG Marathon we decided to trail/hike Mt Kosho, Fukuoka.

See here (at Youtube) what my GoPro recorded.
(still a learning process, but fun indeed).
