Refit:  Winter 2008-2009

Winter 2008-2009 Refit | Sunday, October 19, 2008

I began the day by sanding the varnish on the toerails and hatch surround.

Next, I spent a short time removing the old discharge hose from the galley sink sump, since I'd need a new, longer one to make the run to the new location.  Removal was straightforward; I reserved this length of hose for some future re-use.

Next, I sponged out the water that remained in the bilge, and cleaned things up a bit.  The bilges had held up very well in the years since the initial restoration, and though I'd initially thought of repainting the bilges, I didn't see any point, as the paint was in good condition, so I removed that from my list.  I wanted to get the bilges clean and dry so that I could eventually secure a platform on which to attach the new galley sink sump.

While I was inside the boat, I unclamped and removed the holding tank vent hose, located in the chainlocker, and detached the old plated zinc vent fitting from inside so I could remove it pending arrival of its new replacement.  I finalized my parts orders and sent them off.


Later in the day, I applied the 4th coat of new varnish to the forward hatch surround and toerails. 



Total time today:  3 hours
