My goal today was:
Clean and Paint Engine
Hookup Bilge Pump
Clean out the inside and remove the cushions.
Ready her for her first day sail next week.
What I accomplished:
Cleaned and Painted Engine
Could not start the engine because even after charging the batteries proved to be shot.
Found that the cushions are in better shape than I expected and will just need to re-cover. But for now, even though I don't like them, they will do for sure.
Polished up the wood and cleaned her inside pretty well. I was pleased that when I put polish on the wood, most of it came back really nicely. There are only a few areas that need some stain work and it will be just fine. I will eventually change the galley counter tops, but that is down the road a bit.
It was a bit frustrating, but pleased as punch that she is looking so much better inside with a little TLC. I have dear friend joining me shortly so we can take her out together after replacing some of the rigging.
We will still need to do the renaming of the boat, but likely will not do this until we get her moved to her permanent home.
