1. sort out the trailer
- pump up tyres
- WD40 all rollers
- grease the axles
- repair the one front roller which has slipped slightly
3. simply the big hatch fitting system at front bulkhead - its too time consuming to open at present because I used six wing nuts (don't ask me why I have no idea why I was that stupid)
4. fit some flat plywood floor boards to area forward on centre thwarts
5. sand and repaint over the dings and scratches
6. deks oljie the rear cockpit gratings
7. simplify the tiller control system to a piece of string and two side cleats
8. redo the safety harness rope attachments. I think I'm going for a 6 or 7m of rope attached to my harness affair; which is secured to the area forward of the centre case so that i can easily move about the boat which out detaching myself
9. alter cleats for jib sheets - so that when single handed sailing - each sheet comes through coaming to centre of cockpit just at rear of centrecase
10. sort out bits and pieces tub which I carry - it has spare deck hardware, screws, sealant etc
Then I want to sort out what's in the grab bag and get that right. I've altered the way that the mast and booms are carried in the boat whilst moving between shore and home. i built several uprights with carved cross pieces to take the various booms and masts. They are secured to cross-pieces with elastic bungee cord. It's made them securer and quicker to unpack on arrival.
I recently sorted the rigging adding simple lazy jacks that also operate as a topping lift and that has made lowering the sail much more controllable and neater - less dangerous too!
