If your boat’s raw-water system is not protected by CLEARLINE, you may be carrying some unwanted stowaways in the bilge. The same barnacles, algae and bio-slimes that cling to a boat’s hull and running gear, can enter the boat via the raw-water pumps, clogging strainers and shutting down crucial equipment.

Maybe you’ve worked on boats—put in your time, mated for some folks all the while learning what to and what not to do. The result of your journey? You’ve finally been offered a job to run a boat. Or maybe you are a seasoned vet running an established program throughout the world.
It seems that my boat checklist never ends. The checklist is a valuable tool for me which I use religiously. I always keep it handy. If you are like me, and don’t write down what you’re thinking, it most likely will be forgotten. During any given week, my mate and I work off of a checklist that is continuously updated.

One would think that you could run out of things for a checklist, but if you keep a top-notch boat and stay up with all the systems that should not happen.
Baylliss Boatworks, Wednesday, March 17, 2021—Overtime, the newest 67-foot vessel by Bayliss Boatworks, is sitting right side up after a successful hull flip earlier this month. Construction began on Overtime last summer and is expected to be delivered to its owners in early 2022.

The wind was from the southeast at 20 knots and we were now dangerously adrift, heading into unknown waters of unknown depth, and approaching other docks and vessels like a wayward pinball. I looked towards the bow to check the anchor, and there wasn’t one. An otherwise happy day had turned to sh*t in a hurry. We kept our cool and sprang into action.
