2013/2014 Maintenance Season

I hate winter, but at least it forces me to maintain the boat instead of sailing the keel off of her.

I'm going to attack cosmetic issues as much as my wallet will let me.
I've started off Cetol'ing all the brightwork, and I'll brag that it's looking great already.

Whatcha got?

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

three new injectors, a new air filter, and the usual winter maintenance. I'll do more after I return from Florida next spring.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

Also have to attack the teak this year and bed chainplates. Hopefully those will be my biggest tasks this year.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

I've already made 2 soft shackles from 1/4" Amsteel line (breaking strength > 8000 lbs).
Soft Shackles

I'll probably have quite a few come spring when I can start messing with the boat snot (epoxy & glass) again. Too cold now for epoxy or Cetol so both will wait for a warm March/April.

New pelican hooks on the lifelines, replacing cotter pins, adding a mid-ship cleat and a whole host of minor issues that came up on my survey this summer.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

For starters: sanding most of the interior and refinishing it, replacing rotten shelving, replacing holding tank hoses, troubleshooting radar system, relocating GPS, installing depth transducer, troubleshooting fuel gauge, tracking down leaks to figure out where to start rebedding, removing hot water heater for testing and possible repair/replacement.

Luckily(?) all of my epoxy and Cetol projects are small enough to be removed from the boat, and refinished in my garage or house where I can control the climate.

I'll have to wait until spring to Cetol the teak islands on top of the coamings, but the rest will be done at home.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

This season, I used the notepad on my iPhone to enter squawks and needed supplies all season long. Unbelievable how long it got. I have not even sat down to look it over and sort out what's going to be done over the winter.

A big, complex boat means big maintenance.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

I think I'm keeping a couple of pins, maybe a bolt or two.

Otherwise I'm rebuilding the boat.
