Maintenance routine

A good maintenance routine starts with a thorough sort out after a launch. Before anything else can take place the messy tasks must be got out of the way. Here the boat is being refuelled.

Once that is out of the way she is given a thorough wash down with 'car-wash' and a sponge, inside an out. She is then hosed off.

Once this has been done she is hoisted up by the bow so that any water in her can drain out of the back. Then all of the kit stowages are opened so that they can dry out. Finally the battery is hooked up to a charger so that the batteries will be kept in tip-top condition.
