spares and extra gear

Hello,

So yesterday I finished my spring prep work and the boat was ready to be launched. I needed to bring up the gear from basement to put on the boat. I removed this stuff to get better access to the lazarette, engine, spaces, etc.

Instead of just grabbing the stuff (stored in 3 milk crates and two similar sized plastic bins) I decided to inventory it and only bring on board what I needed. I found:
  • 3 hand scrub brushes. Looks like 2 have never been wet
  • 2 long handed deck brushes. I bought one and had never know the other one was there
  • 6 good dock lines and at least that many older back ups
  • 2 big bottles of diesel fuel conditioner, both 1/2 full
  • 2 bottles of 'boat wash'
  • 2 diving masks and snorkels
  • 2 short fresh water hoses (in addition to the 50' hose I leave on board)
  • 3 hose nozzles
  • 2 5 gallon buckets
I have now reduced everything to just a few spares. I guess I should have done a better job inventorying everything back in 2006 when I bought this boat.

The real good news is that the boat should be launched today.

LOL... there are boat gremlins that will hide stuff you bought, and then bring it back out about a day after you buy the supplies again...

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.
