That's the way...
I have two categories of work on the boat and one method of prioritising the jobs.
The categories are:
1. Jobs that can be done while under way.
2. Jobs that need the boat in the pen/on the slip
The priority system is, ANY job that, if left undone, will prevent the boat from being used, goes straight to the top of the list.
If a job in the second category appears, I DEAL WITH IT, as soon as practical, particularly if it fits the priority system of preventing the boat from being sailed.
Otherwise, when under way, I set the autopilot
and get to work on the small jobs, but then, I enjoy working on things, which is why I bought a boat rather than a book.
Just two weeks ago, I went down to the boat to do a few small jobs, but the conditions were too perfect to stay in the pen. So I did a runner, spent two hours on the water
, and ended up setting a new speed record
(for us) coming home. And, while I was at it, attended to a whole stack of little jobs on deck
No guilt whatsoever, the whole point of having the boat was for it to be sailed and to have fun doing so.
