Over the past two weeks we changed the oil, oil filters, fuel filters, transfer case oil, and almost completed oiling all the wood in Starjewel. We used the Pure Oceans Teak care kit from West Marine. It is a process getting all the wood complete. You have to wipe everything five times. Once with water, once with cleaner, then wipe off cleaner. Next, apply teak oil, then wipe off remaining teak oil. You don't realize how much wood is in a 32' boat until you have to wipe it all down 5 times. We managed to get it all done except for a small wall on the starboard side, companion way steps, and the rear cabin. I will say it makes it look 10 times better. The color is back and it seems smoother to the touch. For a 15 year old boat she looks great on the inside.
Since we were cleaning everything it was also a good time to clean out all the clutter that starts accumulating. There were random screws, nuts, and parts that ended up in the navigation station that were put away in the right place. I seem to have misplaced my allen wrench set also. It's probably in the garage at home. I can't wait to live aboard so I'll always know everything I own is within 100' of me at any time. We inventoried some of the dry goods we keep on the boat so we have an idea of what to bring for Christmas. We were taking measurements of all the stuff we want to make covers for. Awhile back we purchased an LSZ-1 sewing machine from Sailrite and Lisa has been busy making covers for the grill, outboard motor, companion way, and our rear pushpit seats. She's working her skills up so we can replace the bimini this winter.
