Thumbs up

I must tell you, I feel so blessed to work for such a WONDERFUL company! Just hearing your praises makes me feel that much more assured that we are doing a good job, and that's half the battle. Have to admit that I really enjoy working with DYT - everyone is SO nice here... and I am not promoting in any way, just being honest; it has enriched my life twofold and for that, I am grateful!!!!!

Keep the comments coming - good or bad - we want to improve in any way we can!

Hi Catalina,

When I was dreaming of transporting my little boat from the Baltic to the Med, it would need a coat of better antifouling since we are not allowed to use the best (worst) paint up here. Will this be a service you could consider to arrange during the transport since it will probably be too little time prior to unloading at arrival?

Dear Lars:

You could perform maintenance or painting work while your yacht is drydocked on our yacht carrier. Please check with the loading master for logistincs next time you are onboard. Okey dokey?

LOL!

If you move your curser over the small computer icon immediately to the left of each post, it will display the IP address of the poster. We're definitely not together!

Although, if one of us was using a laptop with an aircard... who knows?

This is some way to derail a thread. Although maybe CCamper IS Catalina Camper. Hmmm.....
Hey Cat,
I'll post some of the photos I have from when I was onboard and give em all a first hand perspective.
Have a nice day (you two).

The Y/C Dockwise Express has been launched.. I am not sure if this has been posted but it looks fairly recent to me. She seem to have been launched on the 19th of January. The Yacht Transport website has been updated with nice pics of the launching and now indeed we can really see what the vessel looks like. Very stylish looking for a yacht carrier.
She will go on for sea trials In May but her Delivery to the owners will be sometime in that month as well.
For more on this wonderful progress in build visit the Dockwise Yacht Transport website....http://www.yacht-transport.com/index.php?sid=135

Here you go Talon. I took these shots when I spent the day aboard the SS 3. Watched the entire operation, from submerge, to float off/float on and deballasting. The crew, all in orange jumpsuits, buzzed around like busy bees all day, barely takinga break until all was done. This research was for a story for The Triton, and now is on Dockwise's site: http://212.204.204.8/downloads/files...ise%200611.pdf (shameless plug but here so you can get additional info, nothing in it for me).

Pic 1 - Shot from on the deck before the action starts
Pic 2 - The submerging, or ballasting procedure begins
Pic 3 - Flooding the deck continues
Pic 4 - A tight squeeze. But Capt Rick did a great job manuevering this baby out. Crew helps with placing fenders along the catwalk. Not a scratch.
Pic 5 - Brand new Warren 87 arriving from Australia for FLIBS. Sean from Warren is on the back deck with a remote control backing out.

I was just about to say, that's Sean from Warren on the aft deck of the 87'. He's a member of YF. Good guy.

Yes he is. Gave me the tour during FLIBS and told me to come on down for another visit anytime. May have to take him up on that and get a few shots of the interior (that new camera has me clicking away like a Japanese tourist, no offense). Sean, let me know when the next one comes in.
