Get the Hallberg-Rassy fit


So, we have reached Dubrovnik and are at the marina now. The work to get SY EraOra fit for the summer has started. I thought I would share the "things to do list" with you:

Engine work

- change oil and oil filter

- change diesel filter and belt

- change water pump impeller and put thermostat back

- top up cooling liquid

- dissembling the propeller, grease the shaft and paint with antifouling  

- new zinc anodes on the saildrive

Outboard engine

- change engine and gear oil

Sails and covers

- put up the new furling genoa and grease the furler

- put the main sail on and put a bit of ballistol on the slider

- clean all the winter covers and stow them away


- clean the hull properly, polish slightly and wax

- put two layers of Hempel antifouling on


- fix some chaulking on the teak deck

- mark the anchor chain again

- clean and wax the deck and the cockpit

- clean the boat inside

- treat the wood inside with wood polish

- grease the seacocks

- putting Vaseline on the window seals

 for now...
