Haulout Checklist

I love lists, and I have seen a few great lists lately of things I would like to remember to do next time in the haulout. I am going to print out the list and stick it in the front of a maintenance log book. The maintenance log book will record all the things that get fixed, replaced or maintained along the way, and I will also add in the cost of what was done and perhaps where the parts were procured from.

  • Book haulout
  • Get tiedowns and ropes ready for the cradle
  • Ladder
  • Wet weather gear and boots for the waterblaster
  • Sand off antifoul and repaint
  • Wash and dry all sails
  • Change engine oil and filter and sail drive oil
  • Replace anodes on motor and sail drive
  • Replace fuel filter
  • Replace impeller
  • Spray engine with WD40
  • Full up fuel tanks
  • Clean battery terminals and smear with vaseline
  • Check rig – wear & tear, corrosion, sheaves, lights, tangs, split pins, spreaders
  • Check lifelines
  • Inspect all lines for chafing, wash sheets
  • Wash out anchor locker, check all shackels
  • Interior – vacuum clean and polish everything – walls, clean inside cupboards, bilge and fridge
  • Check all electrical systems are working ok
  • Empty fresh water tanks and clean out
  • Polish stainless
  • Overhaul the winches

Things to take – I have got some lovely boxes in my garage which are full of all the things I regularly use in the haulout. I throw them all in the back of my car to take along with me so I have everything there. 

    • Ladder
    • Overalls, hat, goggles, earmuffs, gloves, face masks
    • Sandpaper
    • Masking tape
    • Rollers and roller tray
    • Antifoul paint
    • Engine oil, sail drive oil and filters
    • Anodes

    • Container for putting old oil in
    • Rags
