Teak decks

Posted on February 25, 2010 at 5:25pm 5 Comments

Hi there folks, We are getting ready to get across to the UK to pick up Freedom, and do her sea trials and check her out and all the work that we have had done. One of the main jobs was to restore her teak decks. They are looking gorgeous. What advice from anybody on how to keep them up to condition, and in particular when we have to leave her in the UK and winter her for 6 months thereabouts? Thanks in advance, hear from you soon. Cheers for now. Susie.

Hey thanks for the VALENTINE WISH...i sure would like to see pictures of where you are and in and out of the boat. Does the boat have enough live aboard storage?

It has been a colder winter, so not at boat much. It snowed her a few nights ago, but all gone now.

Have a good week

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
