Cold, snowy weather projects
With our first snowfall of the season this weekend, I thought it was a good time to drag a bucket of boat parts in from the garage and do a little maintenance. I began with the old Barlow 22 winches, disassembling them and giving the innards a good scrubbing with kerosene. They cleaned up nicely and now the pawls are making a nice, crisp clicking sound - as they should.
Little projects like this one aren't nearly as satisfying as the bigger jobs that get the boat closer to launch, but they are jobs that will need to be completed at some point, so they might as well get done now.
