Future boat projects

|

Cleaning the bilge won't be fun, but I've got to do it.

Since we’re buying a new boat we have a list of stuff that would be nice to make our boat ready to cruise on. Most of these projects come from the boat survey, but others are just to make life aboard better. Criticality is a code with 1 being fix for insurance purposes and safety of life at sea, 2 make life aboard nicer soon before it breaks and causes major problems all the way down to 5, stuff that would be nice but doesn’t have to be done soon.

Are there any projects I’m missing? Let us know by submitting a comment.
