Removed the tarp, and towed her to my shop, where I will get her ready for another year on the lake.

Our lake is still frozen, and it most likely will snow more, so I am way early, just anxious to get the season started again.

My plate is full for activities this spring, so how much work I will get done to SB before her launch is in question. I am really too busy for any serious construction projects.

Here is a walk around video showing all sides of Sugar Bee

One issue, is she had no convenient way to winterize her engine, as she was a southern California girl and this was her first winter. So I need to replace some hoses we cut to get antifreeze into her system.

If I had more time and were not so busy at work, I was going to have a long laundry list of things to do, some pretty aggressive. As it is, I think put construction projects off a year.

The waterline stripe is the only project I have other than hoses, that I know of.

Last year, I traded sailboats several times, and the stress of that, was no big deal to me, but my wife hated it. Part of the reason to hold off on projects this year, is to give her a break. She always gets involved in my projects. I want a year of sailing, without so much work, so maybe she will enjoy it more.

That's great Gary!!

A year of sailing w/out so much work sounds nice. Cool

I had such a laundry list

Change Masts
Add Roller Furling
Change .................. The list was almost endless

When I paid my slip fee, it hit me, how large the hole in the water I was going to be filling, and how much time I was going to be relaxing on my boat.

I have a new goal, do nothing! lol

Step the masts, and quit!

I do have to redo my water line stripe, and that should take about an hour.

I will hand the trailer to a machine shop and add a stout ladder, & paint the trailer. That needs to be done. Trailer showing signs of rust.
