13th October 2021

Category: Engines, Deck Work

Maintenance/Repair Details: Having not lifted the boat for a full winter ashore for 5 years, only late summer lift and return, we will be lifted ashore very soon and remain so until March 2022. In preparation for the lift we have now commenced preparatory work by undertaking those jobs which we can do now.

First task was to fix the soft area on the fore deck by drilling into the deck area from within the saloon and injecting expanding foam between the deck layers which solved the problem. Refilled and repainted the saloon roof as good as new.

Carried out oil change on both engines (oil filters arrived today but will not be replaced until both engines are fully exposed due to location of filters).

Winter canopy fitted.

Fresh water tank emptied, toilet winterised and engine anti-freeze checked and topped up. 

27th October 2021 - Kevayling lifted out & blocked for the winter. 

Parts and/or Items Used: Foam Filler, Oil
