Winter Lay Up


Recommended Posts

When we had Rondonay, I just cleared the fabrics for winter and left the rest of our equipment aboard. Now with Brilliant coming out every year and sometimes needing work,  I clear the lot, which necessitates a near-house move level of 'stuff'. I try to keep it down but every lay up shows that the clutter fairies have been at work again, next year I will be very determined to keep things simple ( just like last year......).

Iain, do your anodes last 4yrs?

I know my boat is different and I have to get my legs serviced every 2 yrs, but some of my anodes seem to do their job quite well and would never last 4 yrs.

I like to have a look at her bottom as well and clean her down and re antifoul so mine is done every 2yrs. Fortunately done last year so a cheaper winter for me this year - might even buy her indoors a Christmas present!!! Maybe some teak oil!!!!

Poppy is now safely tucked away in a cosy shed until next April.  I'm about to take the sails in to Jeckells for valeting and inspection, where they will stay safely until needed next year. Engine oil and filter changed, anode ordered.

That's the easy work done .......
