Hi everyone sorry for the delay been busy with work.
The mast is a US Spars. I have a quote from them to replace for about $20K including the shrouds. A replacement headsail furler
will be about another $3-$4K. That plus the swim platform ($3K) are the major repairs
needed. The mast is in two pieces, whoever buys the boat is welcome to take the pieces back with them to Florida but there was some damage to the spreaders. I already bought a new mast step, generator cover and aft starboard stern pulpit railing and the buyer will get those included.
CampDavid: You said you can see a picture of the swim grid? Not following. No one has spotted the swim platform yet or at least brought it to the attention of the boatyard.
A picture of her back in better days (taken in May):
(going off memory here):
engine with sail drive - worked great before storm. ~300 hours.
generator (6 or 7 kW). ~100 hours.
-Electric anchor windlass
with both local control and remote
control in cockpit
-Anchor upgraded to Rocna
55 pound. Still have original CQR
buyer can have.
-Electric toilets, set up for freshwater flush
sail, unaffected by storm since was in front storage locker. Just had the sacrificial leech replaced (cost $1,500).
-Mainsail - needs minor patch work from the storm, but is fully recoverable.
-custom cockpit cushions
package including radar
(was working before storm), MFD's at both helm
-Additional 7" chartplotter
MFD installed at Nav desk
-Standard Horizon GX2200 (if I recall) VHF radio
-AIS/NMEA2000 interface which displays AIS
data right on the chartplotter
- VERY nice addition
with 4 speakers (two in main salon
, two in cockpit)
-TV in salon
-two inverters, one 200W dedicated to TV (so you can watch TV just running on battery) and one 1800W Pure Sine Wave Xantrax Prosine inverter
. Lets you brew coffee and run the microwave without needing to start generator, very nice.
-Air conditioning; two 16K BTU units in owner's cabin
and main salon, one 6K BTU unit for aft staterooms
-Fridge and ice box
-Tail section of Jordan Series Drogue
, used for sub-hurricane rough weather
. If you buy the main section for a little more you will have a full survival drogue
-Seabrake drogue, not as good as the Jordan but much easier to recover. Bought this to use going through a cut between islands in the Bahamas
if conditions didn't look calm.
-EPIRB (need to check battery
-Raymarine Downview imaging sonar, integrated into chartplotter MFD's. Shows the bottom in pretty incredible detail.
-Explorer chart chip for chartplotter
- one of the davits
may need replacement, the cross-bar ends need straightening or the davit bar replaced.
-Solar: Has four 100W solar panels
and frame to mount atop the dinghy
davits. Morningstar Prostar solar
controller. This solar
setup was nice, it would really cut back the amount of time you'd need to run the generator to recharge the batteries
when making a passage
. At anchor
or dockside it would keep your batteries
topped off without ever running the generator.
-Simarine Pico battery monitor
- this is awesome, it shows the state of charge, voltage and amps in/out far more accurately than the switch display at the nav station. Really saves on generator run time.
-A ton of little improvements and other related tools and equipment
like additional dewatering pumps I'll go over with the buyer.
A large part of me wants to get the boat back to Florida and restore it and then either sell it for a lot more or just keep it. But it's hard to take time off work to manage the recovery, especially motor it back to Florida. If someone can take a couple weeks off work to get it back or is retired this would be a great deal for them. If I get it back to Florida then the hardest part for me is over and I'll re-evaluate.
It looks like the boat should be set upright in the next 5 days or so. I'll try to find a window to fly down and test the motor and generator and other systems. I will also meet the buyer at the boat and go over the systems and operation before they set out.
Thanks for looking and take care everyone.
