TIPS & TRICKS
Teak is a natural product that has a naturally high lime content. This makes teak naturally “oiled”.
– never use a hard brush for cleaning
– never use teak oil for maintenance
– never use a high pressure hose
– clean only with a soft brush and mild soap
– cleaning with salt water is preferred
Do you suffer from a heavy steering or play on the rudder stock. Probably the rudder bearings need replacing.
All rudder bearings for Compromis and C-Yacht are made of Delrin. Most rudder bearings are made of moisture-sensitive nylon but, despite the high quality material, the rudder bearings are subject to wear. Change your rudder bearing in good time only using original bearings.
Attention: your gelcoat surface needs regular maintenance. The darker the colour, the more necessary it is. Wash your boat several times a season and use a mild boat shampoo. When rinsing use lots of water to wash away sand and salt deposits.
Wax your C-Yacht twice a year. For this use only boat wax. For the hull use Teflon, for the deck use normal boat wax.
To help you as reminder, hereby a checklist
for the most common winter works. Easy to have it on board
Every year check for:
– Broken strands
– Locking bottle screws by means of split pins
– After 15 years do a complete health check of your entire rig
Take care for correct mast trim, this ensures a long lifespan and a better sailing boat. See also mast trim
When you make gelcoat repairs, use only original C-Yacht gelcoat. Especially when you are using a colour.
– When working with gelcoat make sure it is between 15 and 20°C.
– Remove loose flakes
– Mix a small quantity of gelcoat with 2% hardener.
– Caution: hardener is very dangerous for the eyes.
– Carefully apply the gelcoat onto the damaged surface with a brush.
– After about 20 minutes sand the surface smooth using 100 grit sandpaper.
– After curing for approximately 3 h, sand it again 1200 grit sandpaper.
– After this polish with a polishing agent.
– Finally, wax the surface for added protection.
