What sailor doesn't have a long To Do list?
I have items on mine which I can't seem to get to because they are low on the totem pole of prioritie - usually the cosmetic stuff like cleaning
Things which must be done frequently and are like checklists before departure.
Tools and where they are stowed
Provisions and where they are stowed
, floatation dev, med kit, MOB gear
, ditch bag, life raft dates,
Spares and where they are stowed (filters, oil
, pumps, bulbs,gas horn)
fasteners, clamps, hose etc.
maintenance schedule, steering
Renewal projects - tend to be long term - life lines, running rigging
, standing rigging
, upholstery, varnish
, bottom paint
constant cleaning and checking of and/or lubrication of blocks, shackles, ground tackle, dinghy
There are lists of lists! Don't leave home without 'em.
