BOWSPRIT Forward is a custom stainless bow rail and anchor platform/bowsprit combination. This unit also has a teak seat that is the most entertaining and driest place to sit on the boat while sailing.

TEAK DECKS The teak decks were removed and replaced with a gelcoat non-skid that requires no maintenance, and makes the boat much cooler. The hull is solid fiberglass and the color is white with a green shear stripe. The decks are fiberglass with a mahogany plywood core.

LIFE RAILS The life rail stanchions are all 36" high with 1" stainless tubing supports to the toe rail. The stanchion bases are through-bolted with plate PVC backing plates. The top life rail is 1" stainless tubing that surrounds the boat. The middle lifeline is 3/16" stainless steel 7 X 19 wire, this means that a wire is made up of 19 strands, and seven of those strands make up the total wire. There are gates through the life rails on either side of the boat. A third gate was added when the new davits were added in August of 2009

DAVITS In November of 2004, a set of dinghy davits were installed on the stern. The davits also support the Magma Avalon Grill. I refer to it as the 'Hummer' of boat gas grills! In August of 2009 a custom fabricated set of davits were installed, after removing the set installed in November of 2004. The new davit fabrication is covered in the dinghy davits installation page. It also covers the new Hummer Grill Installation.

AFT DECK BOX In 1995, an after deck box was added. Originally the boat had no on-deck storage. A fiberglass box was built on the after portion of the deck house facing forward. It is used for line storage, and storage of boat hooks and other items that may be needed somewhat quickly. The spare Bruce 44 lb anchor, and the 50' of BBB chain for the Bruce anchor is also stored in this box. Behind this box is another box, facing aft, built of fiberglass that is on the aft deck. This box houses the two 30 pound propane tanks, the stern anchor rode, the tender fuel tank, the tender anchor and its rode, and other necessary tender related items. Pictures of the aft deck box can be seen in aft deck box repair page.

FWD DECK BOX In May of 2004, another deck box was added to the front deck between the forward cabin hatch and the mid-cabin hatch. This box is constructed of fiberglass. In this box are stored the inflatable dinghy and the spare 600 feet of 3/4" nylon anchor rode.

CAP RAIL In 2009 I removed the cap rail and taffrail on the back of the boat. In 2010, I removed the cap rail on the front of the boat. When the cap rail was removed, I covered the hull to deck joint with fiberglass. The fiberglass was all finished and painted. Completing these two projects fixed the last of the leaks except the leaks behind the name boards. Neither of these projects have been added to the web page, but they are on the list.
