ASD Alaska Preparations

We just got back from the Seattle boat show where we walked out with a pot puller with the attachment that coils the line on the deck. We also got 2 Scotty electric Down Riggers for the dink.

Last week I finished replacing all the hoses on my CATs. Good thing I did. Two pipes that feed and return raw water to the after cooler were corroded on the end where the hose connects.

This week we pulled all 550ft of chain and placed it on the deck for inspection and repainting. Kay is touching up some bright work on the inside.

Friday we order our polishing pads. March 1st we will be on the hard to cut, buff the hull and inspect zinks and running gear. Renew boat documentation.

April 1st, update all electronic charts and pay subscriptions to Spot, Sea Tow. Change engines oils and fuel filters. Same on Genny.

Start packing. Between now and departure, 1st of May we will also be going through the boat unloading stuff we don't need or use.

I guess we are now entering prep mode for ASD.

I like your chain painting pattern, will have to borrow that style when I get around to redoing ours. Thanks for sharing and looking forward to following along with your trip up north. One of these days we will undertake this journey!

You are ready to charge.

I can’t paint at our dock, so I laid out our chain similar to the way you did and inserted colored zip ties at intervals. I have used paint in the past, so I am hoping I can see the zip ties ok.

Good luck with your cruising.

Oh no my friend. That is the last item to be loaded. Why? Easy access and with so much, ballast is a consideration.

Paint style is easy. White every 20 feet. The hundred markers are orange separated by black.

So 100ft would just be a single strip. 200 ft would be two orange stripes separated by black.

300 feet would be orange, black, orange, black, orange. So on.

I have 550 ft of chain. The last 200 feet at the end of the chain is all red. Alerts you that there is no more chain.

I have five 30 amp shore power cords. I cleaned them with a rag and some acetone. Then I inspected the plugs for burnt ends. Found 4 that were burnt and I replaced them. All on separate cords. If I have to replace both ends of the cord it would have been cheaper to buy a new cord.

Thanks to Crusty, I also applied dielectric to each end to help with corrosion.

Pot Puller installed and wired in. This puller breaks down for easy storage and it has attachment that coils up the line in a nice neat pile. Great for putting 600 ft of leaded line in a cloths basket.

I also made an extension cord so I can use the puller on both sides of the boat. This was the ONLY place I could mount the power receptacle (on the stern) that has access to the generator battery.

Now time to move on the the next project. So many to choose from....

Pot puller

We installed the exact pot puller as you a few years ago and just love it. The self coiling feature is an absolute must . Enjoy the crab and prawns.
