Ellery has been hard at work this spring. He has installed one water tank in the v-berth, which will provide water via foot pump for the sink in the head. He has installed said foot pump as well. We have also ordered a pair of large 316 stainless steel water tanks for under the settees (Welditfabit.com), as well as the stanchions, mast pulpits, and boom gallows (Westsail Parts Co.) Ellery has also installed the grab rails on the deck, made top access lids for all the galley storage, and installed cockpit drains. Of course, there is always more varnishing and electrical work to be done. Next will involve installing the rudder and finishing painting the non-skid (Kiwi-Grip) on the deck. It is really starting to look like a fully functioning sailboat!
We also got a new/used dodger from W32 Drommen. This was an easy fit as it came off another Westsail 32!
Life will be much drier and more comfortable here in the PNW with the dodger. Bonus is that it is blue which goes along with the boats theme colour.
