    Default yacht maintenance

    Our boat is being treated to going to a boat yard for work to be done (in the past i have done it all myself) She is having mods done to the rudder but what else is a horrible job that could be done while she is there? I was thinking maybe cutlass bearing and heads plumbing / seacocks?

    Scraping off antifoul rates as a "horrible job" in my book!

    Make sure all skin fittings are metal not plastic which could be sheared off with surface wood!
    Fit new seacocks if necassary and pipework.
    Re-new cutless bearing stuffing box.
    Remember the less holes below the water the better, remove paddle logs and sounder senders. fit through the hull type.

    Make sure you get the price before authorising work.....unless of course you've recently won the lottery.
