Rebuild in 2001 included:  All mechanical systems renewed, all wiring replaced, all pumps, motors, fresh and waste water systems, raw water intake systems, shaft tube flanges; sand blasting of bottom and new barrier coat applied; rebuild water tank and baffle system; new gaskets in pilothouse windows; complete repainting.  At the same time, a major interior redesign was completed which moved the original, lower level galley up to the yacht’s mid-level creating a country kitchen with a large dinette adjacent.  The interior is finished in beautiful satin toned maple woodwork throughout with granite countertops in the galley and Corian in the heads.  Teak and holly soles are found in the galley and pilothouse as well as the heads.  This is a crisp, fresh yacht in all respects.

The Next Port – Country Galley

The engine room was stripped down to bare hull in 2001 to make way for a fully redesigned and updated layout.  The bilges were closely inspected, suspect metal replaced, and the entire bilge area painted with Awlgrip Matterhorn White.  Insulation is built into the overhead panels and outboard.  New exhaust tubes were installed from engine room to transom.  Shaft tubes were inspected and forward flanges rebuilt. The shaft stuffing boxes updated with Dripless Tides Marine Strong Seals.  A large tool box is built in forward and a work bench with vise is fixed atop the work bench. The fresh water system is unique in that it has a manifold transfer system enabling movement of water to or from any of the tanks, similar to the fuel system. The engine room is extremely well lighted and access to all equipment is superb.
