Additional Information

The Hull

This particular boat has never been sailed hard and has no structural issues. Below the waterline the hull has been epoxy barrier-coated. The topsides have been painted with a 1-part polyurethane (Pettit); the bottom with Interlux Micron CSC. Diver reported no hard growth on the hull except on the bottom of the keel. The deck and the cockpit have been painted with 2-part polyurethane in 2016 and 2017. All deck plates have been re-bedded in 2016. All hatch seals and caulking were replaced in 2015. There are no leaks anywhere.

The Engine

The boat has a Westerbeke W-40, based on the very common Perkins 4-108 block. It generates 37 hp at 3000 RPM. The engine was professionally replaced by Hansen Marine Engineering of Marblehead, Massachusetts in 2015 (the original engine had around 5000 hours on it before it suffered catastrophic failure because of a failed seal on the raw water pump). The new engine has 150 hours on it. During the replacement, the engine mounts were also replaced, and the engine supports (hollow fiberglass channels) were filled with foam to lessen the noise. All of the engine gauges were replaced at the same time. The transmission is an extremely simple and long-lasting Paragon 1:1 gear with a wet clutch and was overhauled by Hansen Marine Engineering also in 2015. The configuration is a V-drive using a Walter V-drive unit (original). The 50-gallon fuel tank is a stainless steel replacement.

The Rig

The standing rigging was professionally inspected in 2016 and found in perfect condition. All of the running rigging was replaced in 2013. The sails were re-stitched in 2016 and are in excellent condition. There is a spare mainsail that has never been used. The running rigging has been configured for ease of single-handing: the mizzen sheet is controlled using a purchase at the transom; the mainsheet is fed to a winch on the mizzen mast. The main halyard is long enough to be fed to the cockpit and there are blocks for it. There are jack lines consisting of de-cored braided Dacron that lays flat on deck. There are 3 halyard winches and 4 sheet winches, all in working order.

Dodger

The boat has a custom hard dodger made of fiberglass with Lexan windows. The windows are clear and provide a panoramic view from the companionway. This dodger has gone through 2016’s Hurricane Matthew with no damage and is likely to survive any storm at sea.

Autopilot

A unique feature of this boat is the autopilot arrangement. It consists of the bottom unit of a Hydrovane wind vane, but instead of a wind vane on top it has a short tiller that is operated by a Simrad TP-32 tiller-pilot. The tiller-pilot can sail a compass course at the push of a button, and is also networked to a Garmin wind instrument at the top of the mast, allowing it to sail to wind as well. It can also be networked with the Garmin chart plotter (a cable is provided) allowing it to sail a programmed route with automatic course changes. Because the rudder blade of the Hydrovane bottom unit is almost perfectly balanced, the tiller-pilot does almost no work, saving a lot of power. And because of the position of the rudder blade far aft of the keel it generates a lot of turning force for its size, making it possible to use the autopilot in all conditions encountered so far. The main rudder is adjusted for balance and fixed in place, allowing the autopilot to only handle course corrections.

Wind and Solar

The boat is equipped with a 100W polycrystalline solar panel mounted on the dinghy davits at the transom and a 400W Air-X wind generator mounted high on the mizzen. Together, these provide enough electricity to power running lights, instrumentation and bilge pump, making it unnecessary to run the engine while at sea.

Anchoring

The main anchor is a 33 lb. Rocna. There are 100 ft. of chain and 50 ft. of nylon rode. The anchor winch is a manual bronze 3-speed double-stroke unit. The bow roller isn’t strong enough to pry out stuck anchors; for that, the rode has to be moved to the side fairlead. The chain and rode are marked in 20-foot increments. There is an auxiliary (emergency) Danforth anchor (22 lb.) mounted in chocks on deck with 100 feet of Dacron rode. It is easier to lay out using the dink, to kedge off after a soft grounding using one of the sheet winches.

Instrumentation

The chart plotter is a Garmin GPSMap 547xs, installed in 2015, mounted at the binnacle. Also there is a Uniden UM415 Submersible VHF radio (from 2013) and an older Furino 1621 Mark II radar. The radar works fine as is, and would be easy to upgrade with a Garmin 18” radome that would plug directly into the chart plotter. There is also a handheld VHF radio.

Dinghy

Included with the boat is a 9.4-foot hard dink made of high-density polyethylene and a Mercury 3.3hp outboard engine. The dinghy can be hung from the davits while at anchor or at the dock. When sailing, it is best mounted on the foredeck and lashed down.

Galley

The galley is equipped with a sink with pressurized hot and cold water from either shore water or internal tanks. The shore water connection includes a pressure reducer. The hot water comes from an electric (AC) heater with a 13-gallon tank. Also included is a propane-fired on-demand water heater, for use when away from the dock. There is a 3-burner Force10 propane stove and a Dometic 3-way fridge (AC, DC or propane) hooked up for either AC (when shore power is available) or propane (when it isn’t). A 22-lb. propane tank lasts approximately a month. There is also a foot pump that delivers filtered water from the tanks. The galley has two pantry drawers: a large one behind the fridge and a smaller one behind the sink.

Accommodations

There are two berths in the salon. The port settee can be used as a full-sized berth as is; the starboard settee pulls out in order to make a full-size berth. There is also a pilot berth that makes a perfect children's bedroom, set up with an electric blanket under the mattress for the colder months. The V-berth is set up as a bedroom, with a memory foam mattress and is large enough for a couple.

Heads

There is a separate full-size shower stall with a washbasin for doing laundry or bathing infants. The bottom of the shower stall can be used as a bath for children up to about age 5. The toilet is a manual Raritan, recently overhauled. The holding tank is a bladder tank in the bilge. There is a pump for pumping it out when offshore.

Heat and air conditioning

The boat is set up for overwintering aboard, either at the dock or at an anchor. When shore power is available, an oil-filled space heater provides enough heat when temperatures are above freezing a second ceramic space heater with a fan can be added when temperatures fall below freezing. When shore power is not available there is a Newport diesel-fired heater that provides plenty of heat. It burns around one 5-gallon jerrican of diesel a week. For the hot months, a small window air conditioner that fits in the companionway is included.

Cats

This boat is 100% cat ready.  There is a dedicated enclosed litterbox compartment underneath the fridge, with an opening just large enough for your pet cat.  There is an opening pre-drilled in the floor of the compartment that accepts an exhaust fan to pump the smells into the bilge and out through a vent on the transom.  The top of the engine cover provides a good spot for a feeding  station.

 

Extras

The boat comes with many extras: spare parts, tools, supplies, etc. There is documentation for every piece of equipment on board, including the main engine, the dinghy engine and the transmission. It is set up for living at the dock, for living at anchor, for cruising and for ocean sailing. Very little would need to be added to take this boat on extended ocean passages. Its relatively shallow 4.5-foot draft makes it a good choice for the Intracoastal, and its proven sailing abilities make ocean passages safe and comfortable. The boat is in a slip at Downtown Marina of Beaufort, which is quite a wonderful place to live aboard—friendly and affordable—and the town of Beaufort, SC, is an absolute gem. For someone who wants to live aboard in Beaufort and ease into cruising and ocean sailing, this boat offers an affordable, turnkey solution: a ready-made lifestyle with all of the kinks already worked out.
