My Pilot House Housecleaning

I am finally at the stage of dealing with the ton of stuff that has accumulated on the last two years.

Much of it my doing, as the previous owner, had all maintenance done by others, so he had no need for tools or parts aboard.

Also, I have a clue as to what I DON'T know, so I've been reluctant to throw anything away.

The problem is it's reached a point where of I needed it, I probably can't find it or even know they I have it.

So housecleaning and inventory are the order of the day, week, month.

Anyone know what this wooden pole with straps is for? I once knew, but alas...

The large bins on the back of the bench are empty. They are part of the new scheme.

Also, it's not as bad as I had feared.

But I think it's time for a break.

Yikes! It is time for a major clean up. You're right, if you can't find it when you need it, or don't even know you have it, then it does you no good. Can't tell you how many times I bought things only to discover later that I already had one. When we bought our Carver we did a cleanout and filled half a dumpster with stuff. Probably lightened the boat by 500 lbs.

Looks like a ceiling grab rail that came down when rolling at 135 degrees due to fuel filter plug ups.

Exactly what I was thinking

I think it's for something outside or for the many screens, blue covers I have, that really don't use anymore.

Richard if rosa saw something like that there'd be hell to pay, julie is probably the same. Btw did your boat ever have a wind scoop? That dowel looks like a user upgrade to the hatch batten.

And so would Julie.

But alone, I am paralysed by indecision.

You or the PO found that pole in a dumpster. I threw it away because I couldn't remember what it was for.

I can't begin to guess how many times I couldn't find what I knew I had somewhere and went out and bought the same item instead of searching for it.

You'll need a bigger extinguisher if that pile should catch fire.

I have very pic of scrap or cutoff teak that has accumulated over the last twenty years . I keep saying I'm going to make bungs out all the pcs that are too small . I can't throw any of it away . What's the best way to organize srews, bolts , nuts and washers ? I know I have what I need but can never find it . Good luck with the clean up .

Greetings,
Mr. PM. Ah, organization...As I mentioned in the "Impeller leaking in L120" thread my marina neighbor refers to your "syndrome" as LOB (lost on board). I suffer from the same affliction BUT in an attempt to organize...

I've found fishing tackle boxes to be helpful. I picked up just one of these:

...at the local Big Lots and it's the best I've found. Shoulda bought 4 or 5...

I don't know that it's the "best" however on Seaweed I keep my screws, nuts, bolts, lock washers, etc. in spice jars in one particular locker. If I had space I'd mount them in a spice rack as that would be tidier. The larger jars have the heftier bolts. All are sorted by diameter (and thread count -- 20's are not with 32's) but not length. The finish washers are together in one jar.

Anyway PackMule, that's what I do.

Those snazzy little drawers don't work.
I have seen Plano fishing tackle boxes used to store nuts and bolts. They take up too much room to be useful for me, but perhaps that would work for you.

Addendum re RT Firefly post: I hesitate to say "great minds think alike" (having seen some of those gifs!) but, there you have it.

Like the 4 soldering irons I now seem to have.

On the other hand, I just installed the CO detector I bought last year.

But don't worry, my hydrostatic release for the life raft is still sitting in the box.

You could throw a dockside garage sale Richard. I'd be following you to the dumpster so all that stuff could then get lost on my boat.

I like that idea.

We try for the one year rule (except for my tools and spares). If you haven't used it, worn it or eaten it, it goes. Well, sometimes.
