- New Grp 31 added as dedicated "start" battery.
- Updated Blue Seas battery switch/isolator with new cabling/connections
- Windlass control: Switch/Solenoid for both "up" and "down" powered functions. (Originally "down" function was manual only.)
- Several deck hatch lenses replaced as originals were sun crazed. Not replaced were the 2 originals under dodger (less sun damage) and foredeck hatch (had been replaced previously.)

- New deck hardware: traveller car, deck organizers, turning blocks, rope clutches, mainsheet blocks, etc.
- Corelle dishes.
- New fenders, dock lines, etc.

Additional equipment, currently in storage, but included:

- Magma barbecue (easy install on aft rail.)
- Teak cockpit table (will need some fix-up; we never bothered with it.)
- Bulkhead propane heater (Was removed to comply with USCG passenger vessel regs. See note below)
- Original swim step boarding ladder: If you're crazy enough to want to swim around here then the stock ladder's great, but for climbing into a dinghy, or when stern-to in a slip, it's just in the way. The telescoping flip-out one I installed is great, and safer too as it can be deployed by someone in the water.
- Danforth style anchor (too light for a primary bow anchor) + short length of chain and 200(?) ft 3/4 nylon rode.


We have used this boat recreationally, but also to take out guests on skippered daysails. The boat has never been bareboat chartered! By USCG regs, propane heaters are not permitted on vessels that take paying passengers, so I disconnected and removed the propane heater. It should be a fairly straightforward reinstall. Propane heat is allowed if the vessel is used for recreational purposes only.

USCG regs are also the reason for the bilge alarm on the second bilge pump, and the name UPBEAT being displayed on both bows, as well as the transom. I have removed the other extra safety equipment required for running charters. We intend to continue offering sailing charters on our next boat and plan on sticking with the name UPBEAT so we would really want the next owner to choose a new name. I believe there is no extra fee to change a vessel's name if done when the ownership is transferred.

Feel free to look at our website there are more pics, and a nice little video too.

Photos are from various times over the last 3-4 years, some before the newer electronics, some before the new (grey) dodger, etc. I have lots more photos too...just ask.
