boat functions along with real time information on house bank voltage, starting battery voltage, DC amps (+/-), charge %, Ah remaining, diesel levels, main water tank levels as well as a myriad of other options with up to 22 measurements and 15 programmable alarms.
A Blue Sea AC rotary switch was put in to select between shore power
or one of two inverters installed keeping options open on power

under the seat of the navigation table.
A Standard Horizon Matrix AIS
GX2100 was put in at the navigation table which provides AIS
information on vessels up to 15 miles away, has programmable fog
functions, PA and IC abilities. The GX2100 is linked to the Raymarine
A65 chart plotter as well as the RAM3 in the cockpit. A new matched antenna
was installed atop the mast

An EuGenius Wifi
antenna was also installed on the back rail to help pull in wifi
signals while at anchor while an Ubiquiti Bullet stands as back up or can be used to broadcast your own network.
The previous anchor pan prevented the installation
and use of a windlass
and so was customized providing enough room for the Lofrans
windlass, 125' 3/8" HT chain and 300' of line. The windlass is controlled by two foot switches on the deck
Any intrusion into the balsa cored deck
was treated with epoxy
between the layers and redrilled to prevent any water intrusion. The deck was repainted with a two-part polyurethane paint
in "Oyster White" and flattened with a flattening agent.
The 6" aluminum cleats
were replaced with 8" stainless steel cleats

VFLO 5.0 Diamond series pump
was installed for the pressurized side of things. The salt water
and fresh water foot pumps were rebuilt with the fresh water side now flowing through a 5 micron carbon filter for tasting pleasure. There is also a 110v inline UV filter that can be put in on the foot pump
side for questionable water. All fresh water fittings are 15mm Sea Tech quick connect fittings. All tanks
were fit with an 8" opening port for ease of access to clean.

and the inline check valve was removed.
The veneer in the main saloon
around the ports
has been replaced. The floor was stripped and refinished raw with oil
. The galley
found many improvements including shelving (which gave a 200% increase in storage), knife rack and cup rack. A Norcold conversion kit was installed in the forward ice box providing cold beer
for few amps. The rear fridge/ice box compressor
was found to be nonoperational thus disconnected and removed.
Screens were built for all opening ports
as well as the two main hatches. The wet locker was converted into more storage
