I keep a running list for the professionals throughout the season, however I also keep a list of stuff I will do - either at the end of the season of as we cruise. The list is one which gives a nod to my abilities and willingness.

There are just things I know I don't have the knowledge or skill to do - electrical for one, fiberglass for another. There are also things that I know will take me multiple times longer than the professional because, even though I have the ability to do it, I am not as skilled or don't have the perfect tools for the job. So instead of me taking two days to do a job, and probably redoing it, I will pay him the two hours to do it right the first time.
Other stuff, like fixing the Vacufush, keeping the brightwork bright, replacing light fixtures, replacing speakers etc., I can do, and do.
