Useful Winterisation Tip

Yacht Dougout passed on this useful piece of advice to us to share with all boat owners... 

Ranging Cable
Picture From..
It is a good idea to remove anchor and cable when ashore for winter. 

Cable should be faked out across a large plastic crate to allow the air to circulate and the rain to wash. 

The cable should be inspected and any rust appearances treated with rust care: Fertan is recommended. Ensure that full movement of the Flukes occur. 

This evolution also allows the anchor locker to be thoroughly aired, if you are feeling enthusiastic and energetic you can also give it a quick wash. 

If you have useful tips and advice send them to

Happy Winter!
