Getting set to launch for the season

BOATYARDS that have been quiet all winter are now starting to see a flurry of activity, with owners keen to get their yachts and motor boats ready for launching for the 2017 season.

For many, fitting out work is left till the last minute so prioritising jobs and setting down a plan of action can be helpful. Check with the yard when they are starting to launch and book your slot – it is always good to have a deadline to work to!

If you are not carrying out work yourself then book the boat service professionals ASAP. This is their busiest time of year. If you are confident in tackling work yourself then get the overalls on and get cracking. Set your workload down, list alongside tools and materials required. Add an array of rags, silicone and grease, petroleum jelly, lubricating and penetrating oils, cleaning products, brushes, wet and dry sandpaper, rollers and tray, degreaser, rolls of tape, engine spares and treatments for your water and fuel tanks. It is often the best idea to work from the outside in so that if you run out of time to launch any work required inside can be done on the water.
