Maintenance days

During the past few days the weather hasn’t been great, so we did a maintenance week:
We dedicated one day to the Tohatsu outboard engine (changed the gear oil, greased all squeaky parts, replaced the worn out propeller, repaired the old propeller to have a spare one, etc.), resewed the dodger that is stretched between lifelines and toerail to keep spray out of the cockpit (the ‘pitufa’ letters were coming off and needed restitching all aroundaroundaround…), glued new handles onto the dinghy, spent one day with the Yanmar main engine (changed engine oil and filter, retensioned the V-belt, etc) and checked the watermaker (replaced the sediment filter, etc.).
It’s impossible to get bored on a cruising boat…
