Re: Boat delivery list

So it looks like the list is complete.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: Boat delivery list

Ask what tools are on board.
Is there a working autopilot?

Why a bucket? (We have a couple on board, but wondering why it made your list. For bailing?)

Brad

Excellent point Brad. Hand steering over long distances is not fun. One trip from Norfolk to Tortola we hand steered the last three days. A real drag.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Tools, yes of course. I have a few in my pack but they should be on the list at least to ask.

Ah yes a bucket. You reminded me of another essential. A bailing sponge.

With a bucket and bailing sponge I can:

Bail the bilge low enough to find out what is going on or to get to something below the level of the pump pickup which in some boat can be pretty high.

Rinse the deck of mud after anchoring

Wash the sole after a kitchen mishap

Rinse the cockpit after chips and dip.

Do dishes, or laundry

Water repository to check the raw water intake


But the main reason is:

I have toilet in case the the head is plugged up.
Hopefully this last use is last or a dedicated bucket is used.

In short for the $2 why would you not have one or two.
With new people on new boats some of the very cheap things that are on any boat in use are missing. Buckets are one of these things.

It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.

Re: Boat delivery list

david, often overlooked are the MARPOL trash plan and the oil placards. Cheap and simple, easy enough to keep a printed copy in your kit in case they are needed. But if you are delivering a boat that does not have them, that's two expensive write-ups from any boarding party. Offhand, they used to be available free for the asking, self-adhesive plastic, maybe from BOATUS ?

This is an interesting item, and yes, I have it on board. But, I have never personally, me, heard of anybody needing it.

I am not saying you don't need it, I am just curious as to who has ever needed it.

(This is not a dumb question - I really want to know the answer.

Thanks

Re: Boat delivery list

No list is ever complete, of course...

but one thing I've not seen mentioned, that I never leave without...

Because, well - You never know... :-)





And a good flashlight/worklight, and headlamps, goes without saying...

I carry several flashlights and extra batteris with me so I don't bother the customer with that.

The torch however is something I have wished I had on a couple of deliveries. Not sure I would insist on it though.
