First Winter Projects - Recommendations?

Here are a list of projects I have budgeted for this winter. This is my fist round ever of hiring any services for my boat. If anyone in the Seattle area has any good experience with any particular vendors please let me know!

Canvas Cover for the Flybridge

Props - They are pink

Bottom Painting - Needed it when I bought it

New holding tank - (I'm not going to do that!!)

Polish and Wax - (I hope I'm not doing that)

Exterior Wood - Done half of that, don't want to do more

Electronics & Electronics Installer

Greetings,
Mr. t. Aaaaaaggghhhh........He said the "W" word....


Pink props huh? BEFORE you haul, check your bonding system or have someone with a meter check it for you. You will probably have to add some sort of anode service to that "W" aaaarrrrrgghhhhh....list.

My surveyor didn't seem to think it was unusual for (probably 1987 original) props to need replacing due to galvanic action. But what trade would I need to engage to have my bonding system tested? I'm sure that's a good idea.

What's this winter talk? Just been a little rainy and cool lately .. and not much rain either. It's not even October yet. A short time ago it was in the 80's.

Greetings,
Mt. t. I would expect a qualified marine electrician could check your bonding system. I'm not going to comment on your "surveyors" opinion of your pink props in spite of the fact they may be original.

Appreciate the tips. I have picked up a ton of info here. Also paying attention to decks and windows. =) We are not in any rush, so the right boat will find us when she is ready.

Nothing big this year. I found a slightly punky spot on a plank on the port topsides so I will replace that plank along with those immediately above and below it. Other than that it will all be cosmetic - 8 coats of varnish on all the mahogany and the sole in the saloon, two coats paint on the hull topsides, sand the bottom and apply new bottom paint, two coats varnish on the exterior of the mahogany cabin house and the mahogany transom, install two additional house batteries and another solar panel and 500 lbs of lead trim ballast. If I feel ambitious I may install new galley counters. When that is done I will start on the sailboat.

Sailboat projects include: paint topsides and deck with AwlGrip, recore cockpit sole, rip out and then build a new nav station, redo the AC and DC electrical panels, new main sail handling system (mast track and ball bearing cars), two new midships cleats, revarnish interior and exterior wood, rebed genoa tracks and the usual this and that.

My list is pretty simple: Go to Florida.

That's provided I finish the current list.

There might be some sticker shock and you probably don't need to have it all done there, but CSR Marine is simply the best in Seattle. The quality is great and the follow up is better. We have done two complete electronic installations, deck work bottom jobs and many other projects there. They have always made sure things were right and we have been very happy. As I said, it costs, but they say " cry once" and I believe them. I am sure there are other competent vendors out there, but take a walk through the yard at CSR and you will see a lot of very nice boats being worked on. There is a reason for that, happy owners!

Regards,
Bruce

The Florida season is reversed, so I am just finishing up the list of todos before the season. About 99% complete. The rest may wait awhile.

I still need to replace my potable water lines, and figure out whether I can fix or need to replace my water heater. I need a new relay for my AC, too. It would be nice to figure out why my stove isn't working. I'd like to replace some Isinglass, and patch a few small tears in my bimini. Oh and the plywood under that seat needs to be replaced. That overhead light in the cockpit could really stand to be replaced, and I'd love to figure out why my low level cockpit lights aren't working. I need to chase down that mechanic and see if he ordered that engine hatch strut like I asked. If not, I should order one. And some more replacement fuel filters. Actually I should replace my filters with a better setup.

Sell boat.

Replace existing lights with LED and add a few LED lines in the darker places on the boat.
Any suggestions of suppliers?
