Whether your boat has enjoyed a winter off or it’s time to take on some annual chores, our guide to fitting out will make sure your boat is ready for a great year of sailing
Replace bulbs in navigation lights
If you are still using incandescent bulbs in your navigation lights and it’s been a few years since you’ve changed them, swap them out with fresh bulbs. This is especially important for the masthead, steaming and anchor lights, which will be much easier to take care of if the rig is out of the boat. While you’re at it, consider switching to energy efficient, long-lasting LEDs that are specifically designed for marine environments.
