Do you need to give your boat a check over after a hard winter sailing. Maybe the winter is not fully over but with Spring hopefully not far far around the corner and sailing events starting to happen its a good time to check over your boat.

So what to check?

  • All the plastic fittings
    • Top mast fitting
    • Boom end fitting
    • Gooseneck
    • Fairleads (traveller goes through these)
  • Webbing strops
    • Mast (note new Dynema® Sailing Solutions Version 2015)
    • Boom
  • Check all your ropes for wearRepair / prepare your foils & hull. Remove those scratches and make them as perfect as possible.
    • Kicker
    • Downhaul
    • Outhaul
    • Halyard loop
    • Mainsheet
    • Traveller
  • Repair / prepare your foils & hull. Remove those scratches and make them as perfect as possible
  • If your boat is leaking, its time to fix this, there is no reason why any topper should leak, not even a drop.
If your struggling or would like some advice on any of the following please do phone us and ask the questions you have.
