This is our first time cruising and we are hauling out in Grenada
. I am used to winterizing in NC but now I am summerizing. I would love to see some tips on preping my boat for this 3 to 4 month period on the hard
What I know:
1. Keep fuel tanks
full with Biocide.
2. Open all cupboards and inside storage
lockers and setees for ventilation.
3. Put outboard
in lazarett, put new plug
in and tighten lightly. Spray cylinder with light oil
before replacing spark plug
4. Defrost fridge and remove all food
products that are not canned or bottled.
5. Close all through hulls except one to drain rain if bilge
6. Remove sails
7. Remove all canvas
8. Pickle watermaker
9. Change Oil
10. Change fuel
11. Get rid of extra outboard
Please feel free to add.
Here is one I am not sure of. I know I drain the water tanks
but I have 4" inspection
plates over them inside the cabin
. Do I leave these inspection
plates open or closed?
Thanks for your advice in advance,
