In this article, I aimed to give care advice to amateur sea lovers who are just starting to cruise and have bought their new boat. Even if you don't use your boat, it will always need care. Sailors and boat owners are well aware, the maintenance of the boat is not sufficient with ground maintenance and requires continuous maintenance for 24 hours, 365 days.
Maintenance After Cruising
Do not leave your boat and coat of arms salty. Especially on sunny days in summer, if your board is colourful, the burning sun combined with salt will burn jelkotu and paint. Wash the sailboat nicely.
If anchored, wash your anchor cabinet, chain, anchor and river.
Never overload on irgat. Just keep the chain a little tight.
Insert your coastline feed to charge the batteries.
If you are out of a rainy day, do not leave your wet goods on the boat for too long.
Don't forget the food scraps and trash on the boat, it will make a smell in a short time.
Even if you can't get to sea, start the sailboat's engine once a week, then do it back and forth with the engine after the engine is heated, allowing the water to flow well under the boat. The propeller and abdomen will be cleaned.
Run the seawater foot pump and toilets at least once a week. You prevent bacterial growth and lime build-up due to the water in the pipes.
If you have a generator, run it for 5-10 minutes at least once a week.
Check battery voltages at least once a week and leave the boat connected to the coastline, with the necessary insurance protections available.
Ventilate the boat twice a week, leaving moisture receptors in it.
If there is a maneuvering propeller, run once a week.
Ventilate your sails at least two days a month, which is sunny and windless in winter. Because of the rainwater, the sails in the furling yellow in the lazybag will produce seaweed and bacteria.
Ventilate your warehouses twice a month, remove the supplies and leave them in the sun.
Wash the boat once a week and clean the boards once a month.
At least once a month, tighten lubricant rust remover on coats, boom connection, reels, mapa, crucifixion (WD40). That way they'll be protected from corrosion.
Check your flags once a month. Change your Turkish Flag if it is old or torn.
Check your sintine once a week, if you find water, taste it to see if it's sweet or salty and serve.
Spray your valves with protective spray once a month. This will prevent corrosion and oxidation.
All metal components on the boat, faucets, socket frames, stove, stainless handles etc. Polish once a month. You prevent corrosion.
Run the river at least twice a month for anchoring.
In winter, heat the boat at least once a month, helping to discard the moisture on the boat.
Once a month, take a look at the release stabbings, check the crack and rust.
Check the engine and transmission oil level and color at least 2 times each month. Make a habit of controlling it before every turn.
