Good stuff SD (or should I call you Don Casey?). Most of what you recommend is mirrored by Don Casey in his books.

The bilge pump installation is my biggest concern at the moment. My boat has a swing keel and I fear that it's going to have a slow leak (or worse, a fast leak!). The boat will be moored and I'll be away from it for at least a week at a time. I guess I'll know more after I splash the boat next spring and keep a close eye on it for a week or two before leaving it. My biggest fear is the pumps and batteries not being able to keep up with a leak while I'm NOT on the boat. Perhaps I'll need a solar panel for reasurrance.
