Winter maintenance

Last weekend Jeremy had a day with his friends – see rather fine photos here

Then I spent him a day training him to

  • open up the engine compartment
  • change the oil
  • change the oil filter
  • change the three fuel filters
  • change the fan belt
  • check the ATF in the gearbox.

Here we are in our overalls, and with some of the rubbish we generated.

Then yesterday I upgraded my stern and steaming lights, as the ones we currently have are only in theory valid  for boats up to 12 metres. The new ones were much more powerful and – as LED bulbs – will consume less power. The stern light hangs over the rear doors, and the mast takes the place normally occupied by the Red Ensign.
