To-do list progress

Well we finally got motivated and started working on our to-do list. It is amazing that each season we start out with a list of projects that fills a page or two. We are pretty good about about maintaining Wrinkles, but there are always items that get put off until the end of the season. This year was no exception as the list is plenty long. Here is our list as of now.

To do list 2013

Fishing rod storage rack or tube

Install out haul lines for reef points

Check steaming light (new deck connectors for wires)

Reseal bow pulpit stanchions

Replace Fire extinguishers

Circle ring on main sheet cleat

Measure and mark anchor rode

Replace chain portion of anchor rode

Wear strip on Bimini ( wear from boom)

Sew down Velcro on Bimini window covers

Shorten Bimini 2 - 3 inches

Repair cup holder

Starboard lazarette organizer

Rope pull for ladder

Line organizer

Boat cards with QR codes

Hitch/tongue extender

New headsail - ordered 12/7/12

Replace main sheet

Bearing buddies

Nicro Vent replacement

Cord/charger organizer

Rebuild carb on outboard

Touch up teak

Repair whisker pole

Spare tire for trailer

Paint mast raising post

Finish foiling rudder

Oar storage mounts

Bottle racks on side of head

Spreader wear patches on mainsail

Red LEDs in cabin

Furler end cover - done

Finish mainsail cover (clips) - done


There isn't anything on the list that would stop us from cleaning Wrinkles up and sailing her as is, but several of the items would make sailing her so much more fun. As you can see Brenda and I finished up the new mainsail cover and sewed up a new furler cover (protects the topsides while we are raising/lowering the mast). Mike put a second layer of cloth on the foiled rudder, which is coming along nicely. We have a ways to go, but we still have time before the lakes are ready.


What's up next? Mike is going to finish fiberglassing the rudder and painting it. Brenda is going to sew a wear strip on the Bimini where the boom drags sometimes while tacking and pretty up the Bimini windows. She is also contemplating cabin throw pillows, but hasn't committed to anything for sure yet.


Then it's back to the couch to continue reading most anything we can get our hands on that has to do with sailing and cruising.


Happy Weekend!
