Modifications

This is just a list of stuff I think might be useful to someone else. Some of these changes were made to the boat before I got it. Most of these are simple projects or just interesting information. Here they are in no particular order.

Folding Prop - Martec Slipstream

Motor Lift - Similar to a Garhauer

Intermediate Chainplate Bases - This is important!

Engine Coolant Expansion Tank Relocation - simple and a good idea

Converting to PSS Shaft Seal - Replacing a Volvo with PSS

Binocular Rack - Pretty good storage solution

Short Anchor Roller - This can reduce slip rent

2nd Alternator - More charging power

Windlass Repair - Working on obsolete windlass

Boarding Step Brackets - Toe rail brackets for non ventilated rails

Dual Racor Fuel Filters - Very nice modification for clean engine fuel

LED Lighting - This low power change over from Halogen is easy.

Power Curve - Speed vs fuel consumption for various RPM

Holding Tank Monitor - An external monitoring system called the Gobius4
