With the dead of winter upon us, I'd like to get a discussion going on what projects we're doing to help the "old girl" out and help ourselves shake off the winter blues. For some of us maybe it's just too damn cold to do anything other than go to a winter boat show. For me, my winter project is installing a SCAD tank monitoring system and cleaning out my water tanks. Some other ideas:
  • update running rigging
  • clean & service winches
  • get a quote on replacing that 10 year old main sail. It's a buyers market - BIG TIME
  • install a battery monitoring system such as Xantrex Link system
  • update & replace standing rigging where needed
  • if you don't have one, install an autopilot, OMG, that should be first on the list !!!
  • upgrade lighting to LED's
  • install a windlass (this might be almost as appreciated as an autopilot!)
Those are just a few thoughts. What are you up to?
