Spring Checklist Completed

bottom painted
prop polished
hull waxed
oil changed
rigging inspected
brightwork varnished (only four coats, but...)
solar bimini finished (FINALLY!)
two new cabin fans installed
stainless polished
new vented loop in forward head (not fun!)

two jobs once again didn't get done this spring: getting someone to build a 24"x36" walnut table top, and replacing the anchor chain. Next year.

the new high-clew jib will be delivered Friday, and then I'm ready for summer.

How has everyone else done with spring chores?

cruising is entirely about showing up--in boat shoes.

Similar list! I change the coolant in my heat exchangers too. Still working to the teak table and seats however.

I launched last Saturday. The yard called monday and said they were going to launch me on Friday. So when I went down on Friday night my instincts told me to bring the ladder just in case. My intincts were right. So I gave the batteries a good charge overnight and went next day.

On launch day they had a problem with their travel lift being jammed and wanted to lift from the keel. They talked themselves out of it and found a way to lift from back(I was not too wild about that idea). Put in water and engine fired right up ( I love perkins). I am now never going to let a yard either lift or launch without me present.

I was relolocating from great oak to marina on Sassafra river. We left at about 1PM and had great wind on a beam reach going north 10- 25 knots gusts under jib and mizzen only. Bad news was mizzen blew out about half way there. I do not think I have ever had the boat going this fast before under sail.

Anyway, under chores done, I did not get everything done I wanted to do. Hull still dirty and I wanted to redo teak and rab rail with varnish. Note, I will never use Bristols again. It bubbled and turned brown around wooden joints. But I did get bottom painted and minor hull damage repaired. Prop polished and new zincs including engine heat exchanger zinc replaced.

I got all summer to get to my check list but it is a long list.
