Re-glazed all port lights with safety glass (one broke when we tried to re-caulk it.) 2008: New dinghy/outboard. 90M new chain – not much work done this year. 2009: replaced bow stem chain plates and inner fore stay after the former broke. Blister repair job (first sign of blisters after 1990 job) including one new layer of glass and lots of painting, – unfortunately not taken further up. Also a new awning. 2010: 2 way AIS added. New cushions, new fenders 2011: New life raft, new EPIRB, new docking lines, some new running rigging 2012: New wood for overhead in salon & galley, w/new LED lighting, interior paint and varnish, misc. wood work.

New dinghy floor boards.
Took a break to go to Turkey and meet Dave.
2015: Forward shroud chain plates and stern chain plate replaced. (Bow sprit fitting for head stay only original left.)
Had topside blisters (cosmetic) repaired and entire topsides painted with All Grip.
New Bow Pulpit, wiring, lights, bowsprit paint.
2016: Had professional survey done. Only surprise was damage to mast step and cabin roof core. Unstepped mast, Tented and began repairs.
Replaced push pit with improved design.
Tore open mast step and damaged core and began repair.
Removed hand rails and ground off non-skid.
Continued to remove proud screws in teak deck, epoxy, and re-bung. Some deck wood replaced.
2017-2018 continued above repair work.
2014 - 18: Replaced most of the deck caulking with Teak Decking System. We had replaced it in 2007? But it turned out to be defective, some of it turned to gray powder and blew away in the wind. Some turned to sticky tar. Keep an eye on it. I may not have gotten all of it. Saw a couple inches of old tarry caulk inboard port deck just outside cockpit.
2019: Discovered Dave’s Leukemia. Priority shift.
2020: Leukemia will prevent further cruising and completion of projects. She is regretfully for sale.
REMNANTS OF REFIT STILL TO BE DONE
Almost Everything for this work is on hand except for paint, life lines, caulk, and any electronic upgrades desired, optional replacements. Please familiarize yourself with where everything is, ask me if you can't find something and I should be able to at least confirm whether it already purchased.
Final layer of glass1 on Port cabin roof with fairing. Glass and peel ply on top of battery box/quarter berth. Epoxy, fillers, tools, etc. on hand.
Finish building mast step, shaping, fairing. Note the slight slope of step fitting that rakes the mast.
Final layer of glass on area between hatches including mast step.
Add walnut non-skid2 (in stock) where desired with final paint. Avoid hand rail feet and staysail sheet pulley.
Drill up from below to clearance bolt holes for hand rails, staysail sheet pulley, and mast step bolts.
Install staysail sheet pulley.
Two shroud chain plate bolts still need to be installed with caulk. They are somewhere on board but I didn't check which were the correct length. (There has been a mix up of metric and imperial in my inventory, so make sure that the diameter as well as the length is good and that the nut is compatible!)
Varnish or paint hand rails if desired.
Bolt3 and screw to deck with caulk4. Screws near aft end of skylight, the rest bolts.
Bung holes. Shape. Additional varnish or paint.
Install Mast Step hardware.5
Fit new teak slats for port mast pad, glue in place with caulk.
Caulk around hatches.
Probably a good idea to re-caulk seams on main companionway hatch? Not aware of any problems but it's old.
Replace Port skylight wing hinge screws6 to tighten grip – or otherwise secure.
Starboard side of cockpit and aft of engine hatch remove proud screws7 and re-bung as needed. Re-caulk. Sand.
Install engine room hatch hinges. Bolts on the nav table (I believe). Two go all the way through and have nuts, the others don't. Two were blank – no bolts. Sorry don't remember which was which – I think it was the outboard that were blank.
Bolt stern grating to railing. Bolts labeled in bag on nav table or 4th cupboard. May want to support the grate where the railing is bowed.
Make new life lines. Splicing fids and directions are in forward cabin upper locker port side.
Decide if more lighting is desired in ceiling. Adjust wiring if needed.
Install ceiling panels AFTER handrail bolts are installed and all other above ceiling work. Use existing screw holes. You don't want to do it more often than needed! The wire cover above the radio cabinet forward of the settee needs to come off to get the ceiling panel in place. Screws are all #8 I believe. There is a box or two somewhere. The wider trim strip starboard of the skylight is on the starboard shelf in the forward cabin. Not sure where the screws for that are but there are plenty somewhere. Might be in the cassette drawers under the trays near the car stereo.
Cut and fit remaining trim pieces8. Each piece is labeled as to its location. If done according to plan provided (in orange wiring diagram notebook), there will be enough with very little waste.
Remount carved Document number (in closet) above door between head and fwd cabin.
Make teak covers9 for handrail bolt holes as needed.
Sell belt sander?
Probably best time to take down tent.
Replace co-ax cable10 in mast. (Current one works but new one is better quality, easier to replace now but it will be job and a half to install. Up to you.)
Replace mast head light. (In stbd cupboards, still in original box)
Paint mast and booms if desired.
Staysail halyard block replace with the one on the nav table.
Tighten bull dog mentioned in survey. Boot covers are on nav table.
All chain plates have been replaced. Except headstay fitting on bowsprit is original. Mast tangs are original. Rigging is from 2001. Mast has been unstepped since 2014. So rigging has 13 years of 'use' plus 6 storage.
Add name and home port. Brightwork as desired. Inside and out.
Install propeller with shaft, transmission coupling, flex coupling, dripless seal, nut and zinc. - all in quarter berth.
Finish wind vane assembly12.
Grease steering worm gear and shaft and through hull fittings.
Bottom paint, zincs.
Stow anchors and chain.
Install engine water pump impeller.
Service engine, replace fluids, engine zinc (there is at least one in the trays in the forward starboard locker needs to be shortened), belt
Polish or replace diesel? It's from 2014, not sure I'd trust the biobor that long.
Ensure that no diesel is put in starboard tank. It is abandoned due to porosity.
Inspect fire extinguishers/ life raft / bilge pumps
Get fresh flares
install planking on bow pulpit, nuts and bolts on table or in cupboard
mount horse shoe buoy and MOB. Old available, buy a new one if desired.
Thorough inspection and test sail.
FUTURE (OR CURRENT) PROJECTS
Port side of chain locker bulkhead is delaminating. Had planned to re-laminate with screws and epoxy injected into screw holes.
Replace rigging if not already done.
Starboard Diesel tank?
Whale gusher cockpit bilge pump – I wasn't able to prime it last time I tried. Source for parts listed in notebook.
Companionway non-skid (re-glue or replace).
Porthole netting re-solder
The awning has an oval of tent sticks that the awning laces to like a trampoline. Then other lines (8 of them) support the awning from a ring attached to the halyard. Continuation of those lines – clove hitched to the tent sticks – then tie to the life lines or anything secure to put tension on the system. So the awning appears to free float above the cockpit. An oval awning like an oval chinaman's hat on an oval Chinese boat. It has gotten many thumb's up.
First I tie the oval of sticks to the stern stay and the center of the boom gallows with the sticks supported by the bottom of the boom notches. Then hoist the ring with the 8 supporting lines till they are not loose. Do the anchoring down and adjust so that the oval is sloped slightly down to aft so the awning will drain better. Once it is fairly steadily held, raise the center of the awning to the lower ring under the supporting lines and tie it there with a secure but easy to undo knot. Then lace 8 pieces of line to attach awning rim to the tent sticks. This way it is easier to unlace if the wind picks up.
Refrigerator, wind instruments, auto pilot, water maker, electric windlass, etc.. These are popular items these days but would require an upgrade in the power generation and more maintenance. I’m personally happy with a minimalist life style.
