Hauling out in Phuket

Cruising full time around the world requires us to plan ahead and find suitable shipyards to carry out scheduled maintenance.

The anti foul was showing signs of thinning and we had a vibration on the starboard side prop shaft due to worn cutless bearings. In order to replace those, the rudders would need to be dropped. We also noticed that the rudder on the port side was slightly off centre (an issue we noticed since buying the boat). All in all, it was more than just a coat of bottom paint!

Work carried out

  • Bottom sanding/filling and antifoul

  • Replace the anodes

  • Fitting new cutless bearings

  • Service the folding props

  • Full polish of the topsides

  • Adjust rudder
