Lift out approaches...

...and thoughts turn to winter jobs....  

 List so far....

  1. Fit a more chunky cleat on the foredeck
  2. She's missing a fair-lead on the bow, on the starboard side - replace.... Currently the holes are plugged (bolt embedded in frame sealant) so she no longer leaks but the fair lead still needs replacing..
  3. Drill the bow roller to take a locking pin (to keep the rope or chain in the roller)??
  4. Check and see if I can find a replacement roller for bow fitting....
  5. Repaint hatch covers - stern hatch needs it, the others are ok but as I have the paint brush out...
  6. Paint cabin - just the white bits...
  7. Fix leaks in cabin roof - coach rails may need re-bedding/windows??
  8. Lead halyard/topping lift back to cockpit:
    • Pad eye and block to lead main halyard and topping lift bought just need fitting..
    • Jam cleats, cleats, clutches to secure ropes - not decided which yet
  9.  Cockpit drains - sea cocks need replacing, need to check hoses and cockpit fittings
  10. Washboards - need a repaint...
  11. Hinges/locks for cockpit locker lids 
  12. Fit electrics - battery to drive nav lights/VHF/stero/cabin lights/masthead light
  13. Solar panel for battery charging
  14. Replacement/new jib
  15. Tiller pilot and electrics
  16. Cockpit drain at rear of cockpit - remove and glass over holes...
In terms of importance - if I don't manage to do anything other than 9/. & 16/. I'll be very happy but clearly I'd like to do a bit more than that.. 

Lift out for me is Sunday (20th), and before then we have to get the mast down.. oh and did I mention the weather forecast is rubbish???
