Like the arrival of the rain, the setting of the sun and the rotation of planets, so too comes work on the boat. The project may be something you’ve been meaning to do, or something that broke on your last sail. Maybe you’ve contemplated hiring someone to do the job, but maybe you’re a brave soul and you’ve decided to Do It Yourself.
We’d like to know what DIY project you have going out there, or something that you’ve done recently — within the last year-ish — that you’re especially proud of. We’d also like to know if there are any projects that have you perplexed. Could you benefit from a how-to article?
While those of us in Northern California are blessed with mild winters, the rain, cold and short days can still be a factor in making sailors say, “I’ll get to that project in the spring.” Are you a hibernating DIYer, or are you an all-season DIYer?
Based on your responses, we hope to put together an article in the coming weeks and months. Please comment below, or send your responses here. Pictures are always appreciated. We will also have the next installment in Joshua Wheeler’s Resourceful Sailor Series in the near future.
