The Mt. Washington is kept in Center Harbor. It is in the water, but they have dock bubblers/ de-icers. At least I think that is how they keep the ice from thickly freezing around the boat. I am sure someone on this forum will know exactly how it is done.

I believe what he is asking is will the Mount be "dry docked" this year.

Every few years she is pulled for painting and inspection (I believe it's every 3 years?).

not sure where we are on the cycle or if 3 years is correct.

Thanks Don ....

but this does not indicate when the next Dry Docking is to take place.


I see it's every 5, not 3 years (I was close )

If my memory still serves me, this is a 50/50 risk , The Mt was in dry dock the winter of 2004/05 and again in 2010/11. 2010/11 was the winter of the engine change. There were 6 years between the 2004/05 and the 2010/11 dry docking, so we are one to three years away, unless they are having an issue.

Just my opinion and I could be wrong on the dates.

R2B -- The Engines (amazingly) were replaced while the Mount was at the dock - not dry dock! Somewhere I have photo's of the "hole" they cut in her midsection to get them in/out.

Not criticizing your post - just refining it

I think the Mount was in dry dock 2010/2011 for rudder bearing replacement and other maintenance.

The Mount Engine Replacement was in 2010... I know because that was the year I got Married. My wife and I also attended another wedding that summer, in which we met an usher who was part of the crew that put the engines in the boat. That year the boat was not in dry dock, because it would have made the engine replacement much harder.... She was I believe in dry dock the following year for some fresh paint, and typical repairs....

Remember the 5 year interval, is just a guideline, She may need to come out irregularly over the course of time, when problems arise....

Now someone mentioned the 3 year interval, I believe that is the time line for major inspections for commercial transport boats that fall under Coast Guard jurisdiction.

I really miss those old engines. The Mount just sneaks up on us now. With the old engines you could hear her coming a mile away. That is a "lake sound" that is gone forever.

I agree with you about the old engines. The sounds are unlike anything that runs today. You could identify boats by the way he engines sound. Even the old woodies sound special when they have the original engine in them.

Thumbs up Missing The Sound

I offered to build some glass packed mufflers for the new engines, but they turned me down... ...
