Has Spring arrived?

Phew the heat wave has finally arrived and everyone has remembered that they have a boat and that they have about a month to get it ready for launching, including me!. All the boatyards are full of people rubbing down, varnishing, painting, polishing, repairing and antifouling. Now that we seem to be safely, and hopefully consistantly, over 5 degrees, various chemical concoctions are working. We live in hope of a good summer, the good thing is that the Met Office haven`t predicted a good one so at least we have a chance.
Once you have done the basics don`t forget to check seacocks, rigging and all of the running rigging, pumps plus any hoses that may have split over winter.
When you`ve done that lot you can start to worry about the jobs you forgot!!!.
