Any thoughts any one?
Similarly high importance is getting the Ali prop repaired. Its got quite a few nicks on the leading edges
, and it'll need some work done on it. I remember seeing some recommendations of prop repairers on the engines discussion area so I'll search through and find out who's recommended.
After that I'll need to get all the weed/growth/crud off the bottom of the hull. Even though its been anti-fouled at somepoint that doesn't appear to have deterred all things biological. Is it better to leave the old anti-foul paint on there, or try and remove it (and if so, how)?. Brakes on the trailer also need some attention.
So as you can see Andy, there are quite a few jobs to keep me going over winter.
