Thank you...

It's a work in progress...

Plenty more to do but it's mostly cosmetic and can be done as and when...

Just trying to get some cruising time in now (weather permitting)

Regards

Once again, unashamedly bumping my own thread 😀

I decided that this year we needed to take her out of the water and do some jobs that really need doing.

Plans include polishing and painting the hull, cleaning the transom, staining and varnishing the rubbing strakes, making good a little bit of damage, servicing the engine, replacing the various stickers and decals and generally tidying up where I wouldn’t normally be able to reach.

The hull was pressure washed when she was lifted so the next job was to remove anything that the light fingered might liberate; so off with the engine, fenders, flagstaff, mast, anchor and chain, and ropes. All now awaiting a little love and warmth over the winter.

The outboard mount seems to be good, just needs a bit of a clean:

The spare tatty winter canopy was removed and stowed, and on with the winter cover.

So that’s how she sits right now, awaiting the start of the “winter works”. I’ll update as I go along.

Cheers

David.
