She would be magically transformed into an Oyster
Oops, sorry darling, didn't mean it. But seriously:
1. Fewer through-hulls, and located behind watertight bulkheads like a Sundeer.
2. A big crude slow-turning naturally-aspirated Perkins
lump of iron engine, instead of the high-strung, fast-turning, turbocharged, smoky Yanmar
3. Missing gear
would be provided (watermaker, ssb
, inverter/charger, a/c, backstay adjuster).
4. A little smaller but with the same accomodation (like the Moody 49).
5. Walk-in engine room cum workshop (which contradicts Point 4 above, I know).
6. Much better deck storage
(also contradicts Point 4), capable of holding sails
, bicycles, and swallowing our motley collection of fenders.
7. A tender
garage (yet again, contradicting Point 4) instead of davits
8. Better ventilation. Much better ventilation. Larger opening
windows, like on the Oysters.
9. Much heavier ground tackle and gear
. Horizontal, hydraulic windlass
, instead of the pretty but delicate low-profile vertical Lewmar
thing. Chain counter at the helm
10. Third chart plotter in the master cabin
, for anchor
11. An inboard powered tender
12. All LED lighting
13. Lithium Ion batteries.
The list is potentially endless.
Well, I can dream, can't I?
