Once the dolly’s were secured, a large truck helped to pull Hokule’a out of the water as the crew guided her on the dolly’s. By 7:00pm, Hokule’a was parked and secured in her drydock location. Mahalo to all of the crew members and volunteers who lended a hand last night to make sure Hokule’a was safely pulled out of the water. Hokule’a will be in drydock for the rest of 2012 to prepare for final sea trials for the Worldwide Voyage.
