who provided helpful suggests for winterization.

So I open the door to Forever Autumn filled with trepidation and what did I see?


A bit of mould on a wooden chopping board, shower curtain a little spotty but nothing I could not handle.

I was told to leave all vents open and I did.

A bit of aggro because someone had removed the quick connection from the fresh water tap and filled the tank up.

On with the water pump and it worked first time and no leaks.

Opened the engine hatch, replaced weed filter lid (with a touch of silicon grease on O ring)

On with all the thru hulls and on with the diesel tap.

A bit of pre heat and the mighty BMC 1.8 burst into life first turn.

Nice to see the 150 pound battery charger performed nicely for a 131 days

Rush to see the blue marine safe anti freeze flow out of the exhaust.

Thanks to freedom boats for how to properly anti freeze the system.

The only downer was I forgot the washer so a happy 3 hours with mop to clean the topsides.

And the ropes are home for a pillow case wash.

right I'm off to untangle 20 meters of rope.
