I tried the list, tried the notebook, and gave up to a good guess. Every time I finish something at the top of the list, two more are added to the bottom! Living to the age of 237 will result in a list I can no longer carry out to the marina.

Install a new VHF unit, lead halyards aft, convert genoas from pin stop to line-controlled genoa cars, install two hatches, install a steaming/foredeck light, fix the solar panel mounts, install an inverter/charger, re-do the AC electrical panel.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I need to re wire my mast, I have a new VHF to put in, drain the fuel tank and clean ( not looking forward to doing that ). Install teak mouldings that I made on the new countertop. New Head. Battery box and 4 6v batteries.

Flying down to Florida next week to start bringing Split Decision back to Annapolis for the season. Nothing to uncover or reconnect this year.

Hope the northbound weather is good.

Get the boat back home and go sailing
Then:
- replace main halyard winch
- service primary winches
- rewire NMEA connections
- install boarding ladder
- install refrigerator
- make new deck drains (and remove the current ones)
- add electric bilge pump
- may be have the mast taken down to re-route one of the halyards, replace turnbuckles and change the way lowers connect.
oh, need to replace the batteries but that's just money and heavy lifting

First of all, safety projects;
-> I'm going to install a mounted radio since my handheld's range is not really useful out on the LIS...
I picked the Standard Horizon Gx3000S which is about $200. It has all the bells and whistles I can use around here like loud hailer with fog signals. Being under fog is not a entertaining experience with a 22 footer , especially if the route is going through ferry lines

-> New stanchion bases with wide base plates.

-> I'm going to check and change needed rigging.

-> Buy a smaller anchor and use the one I have for over nights and emergencies. The one I have is about 18 pounds danford, too bulky and heavy to use for quick stops...

And then there are cosmetic projects;

-> I'm going to renew the old cushions... And make new cockpit cushions.

-> I'm going to build a front hatch from fiberglass once I build a cast from the broken piece.

-> I'm going to build a nice looking teak or mahogany frame for the port lights. For both inside and outside looks. And install new lexans...

-> I'm going to build a custom fresh water tank to fit beneath the cooler which would be around 8-10 gallons with a water pump installed on it.

-> Buy a new porta potty... The one I have is getting stinky...

-> Install new headliners with wood trim effects.

Those are pretty much what I plan to do. So far all those projects are going to lighten my wallet about $800 and add about 100 lbs on the boat.
This summer I hope to sail slow in style

Oh shoot! i forgot the bottom paint, add another $300 to the total... Darn!

If/when you make it to the Chesapeake stay away from my 54 year old

My spring to do list includes:

Hire a lawn service so I have more time to sail the boat.

Sail boat.

Work on tan, sun burns for bald guys suck.
