July 4, 2010-Wings Refit Project List

It's taken three years to complete (nearly) the refitting of Wings but we are almost done now and it feels good to to have the bulk of the work behind us and know the boat is in better shape.

It has been more a program of continous improvement than a single refit project:

We started in Singapore in 2007 with major deck & engine work. That was followed by the purchase of the first of the new sails and new running rigging.

In 2008 & 2009 we continued the project in Phuket, Thailand with some major interior work, more engine work, a lot of stainless steel fabrication, some hull repair, new topsides paint, more new sails, and a mirad of other projects. The three months in the boat yard in 2009 constituted a major push to get the big jobs finished.

Finally some critical work was done in 2010 while we had the boat in Langkawi, Malaysia and since our return to Phuket this year we have been finishing off with preparations for getting underway.

Of course, boat projects never end. We might have completed the original list but new items come on every day. Our "program of continous improvement" is ongoing.

Here is what we've done.

  • We assume that while all of this will make Wings more reliable more capable and better looking we still know that when we go offshore other stuff we didn't fix, and in fact never thought of as needing any work, will be what fails and causes us grief. That's the fact of life when you go sailing.

    And then there is the cyclical nature of boat work; it's already time to start over: the deck needs to be repainted, and then... and then...(boat projects never end).
