Always something to fix

In sailing boat there is always something to fix, especially when it should be suitable for long offshore passages and long term onboard living. We try to do as we can prior to departure and then on concentrate more on maintenance and not so much replacing 32 years old parts.

All possible rigging parts were removed, checked and Harken Battcar system was installed. It was a huge project as old profile was first removed, hundreds of drillign holes filled and then all rigging also painted.

Old rubber ring around the mast foot was not so fresh anymore (between the deck and the mast)

Time to change bearings and many other parts in winches. Maybe we also need to convert one to electric as they are all manual now.
