Repairs made to S/V Lemonade

Among other things and in addition to the haul-out, Greg has:

– adjusted all the engine valves
– pulled out all the port lights (windows) and hatches, had them sand-blasted and powder-coated and then re-sealed and re-bedded them.
– added a new bow roller so we have an anchor on the bow that can easily be lowered and raised without beating up the bow
– rigged a ladder so we could get off the boat
– re-built all the lights with new switches and changed them to LED (now we have red light at night)
– re-built the toilet, re-configured the plumbing and added a new y-valve to facilitate overboard pumping
– re-configured the shower drain and re-sealed the whole head (bathroom enclosure) so we can use the showed in the head
– reconfigured the wiring in the bilge
– re-built the winches; he freed the frozen exit block sheaves (which weren’t rolling and therefore making it so the halyard wouldn’t move easily)
– replaced the mast-head light, lens and bulb (also LED)
– replaced all the running lights; re-built the boom with new exit block sheaves (custom-made at the local machine shop)
– rigged new reefing lines and a new topping lift; re-routed the topping lift with a new cheek block and fairleads
– added a shoreside battery charger and a new 120V plug
– added a kit that uses the engine to heat water (so we can shower with hot water)
– fabricated hangers to “gimble” the stove so that when we’re at sea the stove will lay flat
– added a new windex
– got the autopilot to work and moved it to the center-line, in a waterproof location
– he sewed privacy curtains for the forward berth and for the berth in the main cabin, as well as winch covers, a cover for our grill and covers that snap onto the wooden “pockets” in the cockpit
