But she is awsome under sail. We do not get much wind
here in Dubai - be lucky if it blows 15kn.
But she is fine with 7-10 cruising 5-7 knots under gennaker
and full mail.
Lot's of add-on convenience options added:
2x16000 btu a/c (barely enough during day +42, but cool at night and running of my tiny 4.5kw gene at 1lt/h).
hard-wired pressure washer (in the motor
compartment, connected to fresh water
tank) - after fishing
can wash the steps/deck on the way
JL sound with subwoofer outside
Pioneer hifi sound inside
extra instruments and AP remote
at the charttable
29in display at the charttable and nav PC
Here are some pics:
The only sail girl in the marina
Power boats cruise

Extra RD-33 displays:
with power winch
and new speaker:
Small 12v amplifier for the in-house speakers:
New chart table layout:
(can be taken to the net through the hatch):
I even tried to beach her on the tide (will dig for pics) - had to repair the broken saildrive
seal and clean the barnacles
. Scary but can be done.
And yes, you can steer her with one engine
(with no wind
- had to limit the use of engine
with broken seal.
