Greetings,
Mr. s. Nice. Unfortunately I don't think this site has the bandwidth to take MY winter to do list. Now, entirely different situation as to how MANY things get done but...

I do have a list, but for the time being I'm ignoring it and have worked on 'priority items'. And its summer here anyway.

But my immediate projects after a 5 month cruise to the Great Barrier Reef have been/are:

1. Dingy crane. Intermittent clicking and no movement. It turned out to be an earth problem for the 12V power pack. By design the earth is on an aluminium plate that connects to the pump which has the motor bolted to it. Too many point of contact for corrosion, which did happen after 6 years. Solution was an earth lug welded onto the motor housing itself.

2. Anchor chain counter mis-reading or increasing randomly when not being operated. Dealer said could be a bad earth, but it wasn't. After thoroughly checking all the easy options without resolution I replace the sensor. Problem fixed. But it required complete removal of the windlass to replace the sensor. A big PITA.

3. Solar panel (20W) & small charge controller added to RIB. Because I had a spare battery in reasonable condition, and there was room available, I added a second battery to the RIB and relocated the isolator switch, positive and negative bus-bars in the console to be more convenient position while doing it.

4. Replace Perko mortise latch sets on 3 exterior doors. The lever arms inside the Perko backsets are diecast crap-metal and break. The PO had left 7 old ones(broken) on board! A local marine wholesale business import SS units from Italy, which are likely designed as locks for security screen doors. But the backset is slimline and only minimal woodworking was involved to switch them out. A lot cheaper than new Perko as well!
https://www.samallen.com.au/index_in...32&category=72

5. Varnish exterior wood. Maintenance coats on some areas, strip some rub rails back to wood for 6 coats of Deks Olje. Strip some window frames back to wood (first work on them in 6 years) and then 6 coats.

6. Modify clears for cockpit. The clear panels were in need of replacement, but in this climate they were never needed. So I'm having the clear panels removed and replace by holey stuff that is easy to see through, but blocks 95% of UV. Mostly to block some late afternoon sun or give a bit of privacy if stern-in at a slip.

7. Replace failed hot water tank. Expensive, and still waiting on delivery on new one!

8. And there's always a bunch of little things to do as well!

Great idea for a thread. We have dinner guests just about to arrive and I have already poured my first Jamesons so I will post mine up tomorrow.

I have one more coat on the screens. Then I have to do five more coats on two other larger screens.
I installed my backbone cable to my raymarine network. Did the updates to my acu and p70s but my system doesn't see the ev1 sensor core. What I have read was it will have to be updated by a raymarine dealer. I tried everything they said to do to no avail.

I am building a dinghy to use with our Allweather. We have no room on deck so we tow the dinghy all the time. We first had a inflatable but it had seen better years and I didn't trust it anymore. Most of last summer we used a 9.5' plywood skiff, it is a great boat but heavy. This boat is very light and will be fast with 3.5hp and row really well. It is a catamaran at low to medium loads.

My "big" update this year is to install a fuel transfer/filter system. Once that is done, will alternately empty and clean the 2 tanks (300 gal each - currently about 100 gal in each) There is a good sized inspection port in the top of both tanks, I just hope the internal baffles don't restrict access too much.


I am not having any fuel problems and I don't want any. I'll post pictures when I get into it.

OK, so without pics it didn't happen! Follow-up from my previous post (#8) with list of jobs, a few pics:
1 & 2. Old Perko lockset and then new Italian replacement
3. Raritan Hot water heater in place, and working
4. Cockpit covers, clears having been replaced by 95% blockout mesh. And some green masking tape still in place around window trims being refinished.

This is the short list. Have another 30 lesser items on the big list. Need to complete #1 first in order to anything else. Can't find a thing really but I have triplicates of some tools, need to take 90% of what I have aboard home. Somehow they magically migrated to the boat. I could build another boat with what I have onboard.

Redo tool storage
New blinds
Install GFCI receptacles (pull one first to check for ground)
Put Racor on dinghy outboard
Inventory all mechanical equipment Make/Model/Ser #, needed parts
Derust and paint engine mounts
Service Groco Head
Replace RW hose on port engine, add PVC guard
Replace holding tank top plate and vent connection
Repack shafts
Repaint exterior window trim
Replace teak trim quarter round around cabin and flybridge
Repaint anchor chain markers
Caulk exterior miscellaneous trim
Finish interior fiberglass through hull repair
Drop flybridge dash, clean/paint around gauges
Varnish cabin doors
Varnish cabin floor
Compound and wax exterior topsides
