Geting a boat ready to travel by truck isn't that much different than hauling her for the winter. Here the Ava T. is lifted out on the TraveLift, gets a quick pressure cleaning, and then is lowered onto the trailer.
When AYT drivers shrink-wrap your boat, they do it right. In the case of the Ava T., AYT manager Jeff Nowitzke took a good three hours to do it. When he'd completed the job, the plastic covering fit tight and secure.
Jeff Nowitzke tightens up the plastic as his wife Jerina looks on.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
