Preparations for the start of the season

Time to start planning for the season’s repairs and renovations. In a few weeks the spring fixing starts. Not much to do this time, Isabell is in good shape. During winter the batteries are loading from a small 25W solar panel that sits in the mast above the tarpaulin cover.
It helps to look through old notes and pictures of last season’s sailing. Time also to buy new spares to the engine, such as oil filter, fuel filter, impeller and zinc anodes. Some of the sheets have to be replaced and the electronics checked. Now, let’s hope winter does not come back in April, like it did last year.
