@fractalphreak Thank you for taking the time on the details on navigating Deception Pass, and the CruisersCollege. Information abounds in blogs, youtube videos, etc. I'm working on navigating the information load to get to the nuggets of applicable knowledge for where I am now. Right now concentrating on the electricals, battery banks, charger & genset.

YW. There's also a Cruiser's College class next weekend on boat electrical needs!

Consider moving anything that needs to be done by some other "repair professional" towards the front of the list, to be done this winter. As we get closer to spring and cruising season it will be more difficult to get those people.

Short list to prioritize work....

1: Will the boat sink, burn, or blow up.
2: What doesn't work, or work right, or scares you to use.
3: What will make it more enjoyable.

Make your list and then fix whatever breaks first

Accumulating tools, knowledge and experience all take time. I agree with what others have said:

1 - Safety first (which is its own long list)

2 - Whatever will help you to enjoy the boat as much as possible
