    Endurance 720-23 “Far Niente” was hauled out last week in North Lake Union for a routine bottom paint and zinc replacement. Service Operations Manager Geo Tamblyn takes you behind the scenes of positioning this 72’ foot yacht to be lifted by their elevator. The process requires multiple divers to ensure that the weight is properly aligned on the blocks. Over the past 30 years, Tamblyn has operated a 50 ton elevator, 35 ton P & H crane, 20 ton boom truck, 35 ton travel lift, 50 ton travel lift, and 85 ton travel lift. 
     
    Prior to the haul out, Tamblyn went through and closed all thru-hulls to prevent air lock on any of the equipment. Attached we have several photos of the shut air conditioning and engines thru-hulls. Also a few close-ups of the blocks holding up the hull.

    Great stuff! Takes a lot of care to lift that boat safely. Nicely done.

    Here we have Endurance 720-24, the sistership to Endurance 720-23 "Far Niente", returning back into the water after a haul out to have her props balanced and engine aligned to shaft by prop and running gear specialists. This is a standard part of the Hampton Yachts commissioning process.
