Sailing on the Hudson

Cruising Long Island Sound

Getting the Boat Ready

Here's a list of things to do in preparation, based on a diesel auxiliary.

  • Have shaft alignment checked if not done earlier in season.
  • Change engine oil and filter.
  • Change fuel filter.
  • Change engine zinc.
  • Check transmission fluid level.
  • Check lights.
  • Check VHF.
  • Check LORAN or GPS.
  • Make sure reference documents are aboard.
  • Do a thorough cleaning, especially below decks. A funky boat full of mildew can make a rain-delayed layover or a windless, humid night unpleasant.
