The storms at the end of August are here, just as school supplies flood the stores. It smells like going back to school… Before closing the boat, it is the perfect moment to review it from port to starboard.
A zip fastener, faulty electronic equipment, towels to renew… Today we talk about the to-do list while things are fresh. An essential step to make the next vacation even simpler, serene and impeccable.
Below, we share our to-do list in order to prepare ourselves as best as possible for the upcoming season.
In the session "to repair" we suggest you list the elements to change, to fix from the carpentry to the kitchen equipment. We think, for example, of the leaky dishwasher, that broken door stopper, one of the shafts of the bimini that moves ... The list can be long.
For this reason we talk about this topic now. On the one hand, because you have these clear points in mind, as we said before. On the other hand, because as you already know, professionals have very tight schedules as soon as the season begins, that is, around Easter.
Then, for the session “to improve” you can specify the new projects, from important works to decorative themes. Does your hard top not go under the bridges of Empuriabrava? We can add a movement mechanism to the hoop. Is your upholstery tired? Give them a touch of youth. We talk about this in an article dedicated to refit through painting. Click here to (re) read it. Then, you can write down all those very useful extras: coffee cups, a hydraulic gangway, a bathrobe embroidered with the name of the boat, an underwater motorcycle for the children and / or the whole family...
For a few days at sea or for a cruise, it is very nice to be equipped.
Fairing, anode change, a polishing stroke, revision of the engines, the transmission system, the generator, the heating / cooling system of the air conditioning ... Before restarting the engines, it is advisable to update with the general state of the ship. You can write down all these steps beforehand so you don't forget anything. Address the notes section.
Also, things change during the winter. There will always be something to add at the last minute ... So better aim as much as possible so as not to forget anything.
