Barry suggested that we add three more items to the spring checklist. They are as follows:

  1. Lubricate stuffing boxes, shaft and rudder logs
  2. Empty water separator filters
  3. Shock the drinking water tank. Barry suggests pool shock not bleach. Pool shock breaks down in a few days and then can be flushed out.
