A formatted "Ready for Sea" checklist that may be useful. (With permission from and thanks to the author)

Please comment on this list and add any additional "checks".

Another couple of lists to use as a base to refine to suit your own boat - laminate them for onboard use.

With MUCH thanks to Peter Wilkinson of the Yacht Witchfinder.

This excellent "regular maintanance checklist" by "MMNETSEA" should be used in conjunction with the "Ready for Sea" list in the first post of this thread. Combine the two in your own "list" - print it and laminate it for reference on your boat.

1) Check Sea-Cocks for corrosion and function - bungs should be in close proximity.

2) Hose-clips double on any hoses below the waterline, on the engine , on pumps, on through-hulls, change any with suspect worm drives (often these are mild steel in S/S clamps) Replace clips on any hoses that are subject to pressure every year.

3) Check Bilge Pumps - service - clean

4) Check Bilges - limber holes - clean

5) Check Gas Cylinders - hoses (replace every 2 years with certified hose) Check lockers

6) Check Gasoline containers/hoses/compartments

7) Check exhaust system for leaks - include heat exchanger.

8) Check engine bilges for oil leaks

9) Check Prop shaft fittings for wear and leaks

10) Check Engine Mountings

11) Check Rudder Quadrant and shaft bearings

12) Check S/S rigging fittings for signs of hair cracks - especially swaged fittings, don't forget

the bobstay fitting.

13) Check life Lines and Stanchions for strength

14) Check batteries - engine and house - frequent checks on H2O and SG

15) Check for corrosion on electrical switches and MCBs

16) Check Ground Tackle

17) Check Anchor windlass

18) Check sails and stitching

19) Check Dan Buoy and life rings

20) Have Liferaft serviced at scheduled intervals
