Winterizing

24 October 2011
Winterizing begins… Serviced the engine and generator, replaced the start battery, took down all sails, took down all halyards – all 7 of them! – and put messengers up in their place. Went to the gas dock and squeezed a 44ft boat into a 50ft slot – without hitting a single thing – and put 80 gallons of diesel aboard, pumped out the head and then managed to un-squeeze the boat without hitting anything either!!
Over the course of the next couple of weeks, plan to get various people out to the boat to run through systems, measure for new sails and quote fixes to all the broken stuff before hauling out for the winter.
Then the fun will begin - working out the electronic's wiring and bringing order to chaos!
