Getting my yacht Endless Summer ready to start season

Sep 9, 2016

My yacht Endless Summer almost ready to start season

With a real change in the weather to Spring conditions, I have Endless Summer almost ready to get out on the water.

It has been really rewarding repainting a few cupboard inside and doing some interior varnish.   She has come up really well with the attention inside the yacht.  Next week I will haul her out of the water to clean the bottom and make sure she is sailing fast with no winter slim on the bottom of the yacht.

Winter maintenance is easy with fibreglass yachts, keep on top of them with a bit of wax and they really need very little to be done.  Gone are the days for sanding and painting outside on the deck every year.

Have a look and see if you would like to practical learn to sail experience
