Daily checks onboard include; checking the rigging for signs of wear or damage, surveying the bilges for water, oil or fuel, checking the levels on the batteries, grey & black tanks and fresh water. Seeing that the water levels around under 50% means we switch on the water-maker and top up the tanks. Songbird has a very efficient water-maker and in just 2 hours we topped up 500 litres! Showers all round, happy days!
