To-Do List

Our last day of work will be April 30, 2020 and we’ll be casting off the lines by May 15th, 2020.  Below is our list of things that we took care of during the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 offseason.

Originally I also had listed what we hoped to do during each subsequent year, but then we met some experienced cruisers who said we should make a list of everything we wanted to do to the boat and categorize each task with a 1, 2, or 3.  1 = must do; 2 = would like to do; 3 = might do someday.  So that’s what we’ve done below!  Fingers crossed we won’t need to add too many unexpected items.
