Maintenance before rig is back on? before we splash her?
As some of you already know, we bought on the east coast and our boat is currently in transit to the local boatyard in Seattle (I believe in Montana right now.. )
What am I going to regret not doing before the rig is put up?
Scheduling may dictate the sequence of events, but ideally before we step the mast, what should we have done?
One chainplate leaks, so we know we need to rebed them all. Seems like it might be easier with the rig down, but then it won't be under load, so that may affect things. I expect this stuff has to cure too, so we might want the nice weather to get the rig on and wait for a later weather window to do the chainplates.
What am I going to regret not getting done while she is on the hard?
There is some engine work a pro will be doing, which involves pulling the shaft. We will be greasing the max prop, unseizing all the ball valves (hopefully just greasing and not replacing).
Do we need to put the sales up in the yard, or should we do that once the boat is in the water? We will be taking the old name off while on the hard, and doing a bunch of cleaning. The bottom paint is new, so we will just be touching up that.
