Clean the sail track before lubricating it.
Use McLube Sailcote to lube the sailtrack.
Check VHF antenna, and replace it and the wiring if it is questionable.
Inspect the spreaders, spreader bases and spreader tips.
Check the masttop exit slots for burrs or damaged areas that may fray or chafe the halyards.
Replace spreader boots with ones that don't trap moisture against the rigging. Prefer the woven synthetic ones over the leather or plastic kind.

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.
