Maintenance work on a sailboat, like transmissions and dental work, will not improve with time. They need to be tended to regularly and correctly. Not ignored and not with improvised efforts.
After nearly two years of what I’ve already endured, and now re-entering fall and winter, I’ve observed the to years’ of non-use of my sailboat has still incurred those two years’ worth of maintenance… time takes it toll.
The list of little tasks continues to grow. I’ll need to see to making space to store the Lady Ann in a garage so I can address the neglected maintenance, and the additional deterioration from the neglected maintenance itself.
