I have been listing some sailing season preparations to do. In no particular order and any question marks after a point means I am still undecided whether to or not... The more question marks....the more undecided!!
Stick some scrap lead flashing I have in locker with bonding glue....additional weight either side centreboard case??????
Tie little loops to all cleats....help secure rope coils
Sort out front locker hatch and catches...new catches Christmas pressie......make it easier and quicker to get on and off
Recut tent and eyelets....sort it out for better fit
Service trailer at local trailer centre. Needs new winch, winch strap....old one finally given up ghost after seven years sterling service
Fit clips starboard side deck for mooring pole and or punt pole.......thinking of getting a 3.5m long bamboo pole and reinforcing ends inside with broom handle and epoxy....useful for summer time creek crawling???
Sort side cleats......bolts not massive screws.....a sudden realisation in night that screws were big and into frame but not same as bolts through to bolt pad underneath??
Add Gopro mounts to centrecase top, thwart top forward, rear thwart top and side wall, rear inside transom coaming, tiller handle top and side, outside rear deck above transom, rear transom
Build boom crutch support stand for use in boat when motoring......so that boom and yard sit lower in the boat without interfering with tiller and extension and don't swing about above my head???
Alter tying on of outboard............rope through hole or around shaft and then attached to boat not bracket...in case bracket fails....well dur!
Check Anti ventilation plate is 40mm below hull bottom.....I think it is mounted too low and this is an issue in wind against tide situations at mouth of Tamar
Clew of sail tie onto side of boom, same with Mizzen and move clew slightly forward along it......will it help the sail set better on starboard side???
Replacing the elastic on forward part of boom......stronger to reduce bounce
Bigger tell tales like mini flags on shrouds
Tell tales onto rear of leech
Sand and paint over dings and dents on thwarts and hull sides
Sand blast spare tyre rim and repaint and then get new tyre fitted
Make new cockpit sleep platform as per Joel's Ellie.
Build a camp kitchen box like the ones Roger uses
Get out more with the Dinghy Cruising Association
Phew! Lots to do and sooooo little time to do it in!
