G’day again friend. We have had to escape the Melbourne winter and take the car home to tropical North Queensland. Consequently the upgrades have temporarily been suspended. We have replaced both sails with new manufactured by well known local sailmaker Tony Bull. I have put on new davits to replace the old ones which were falling apart. We will mount 2 large solar panels on the davits and two more will go on top of the bimini. We have fully enclosed the cockpit which has made a huge improvement to Purrfect’s accommodations. Back for more when the weather improves.

Thought I’d post a few pictures to show progress. Intent to sail off into the Wild Blue Yonder in March.

Will get some more pictures of “bathroom” renovation shortly.

Have now fitted 4 x 380w solar panels and 2 Victron 100/50 Smart controllers.

Was concerned about sunlight coming through Sunbrella bimini so painted the canvas with Dulux house paint. Very happy with result, time will tell if it was a good move.

Cheers from Downunder.

Hey Fishguy, have you located and bought an Endeavourcat30? Here are some pictures of the bathroom upgrade. I will be making new doors for the cupboard behind the basin. It started with having to replace a non-functioning SaniLoo waste system which is now also no longer legally accepted in some Australian states. Decided to remove the hand basin for better access. The inferior plywood was dust between two thin layers of laminate and I shovelled it into a bin. That required a structural rebuild. We put in a 25 litre Vetus holding tank to comply with the regulations and replaced all the hoses. Added some extra so I can freshwater flush the whole seawater system including the fore and aft deck wash hoses and use the seawater pressure pump as an additional bilge pump. Also fitted seawater strainer so fish don’t clog up the toilet pump impeller requiring a total dismantling. Small fish, big job.

No, finally had a look at one and realized the cockpit was too small for what we had in mind. The binacle just eats up too much space in such a small cockpit. Upwards and onwards. Good sailing with yours!

Re: Endeavourcat 30 New owner

Hi Endeavourcat30 owners and other well-informed fellow cruisers. Can someone please tell me what type and size of packing is used in the rudder shaft bearings of a 1992 Endeavourcat 30? I have a minor but annoying leak on the port side and it’s as tight as I can get it. I would like to have the correct packing on hand when I remove the top nut.
