In 2006 we added the Icom M802 SSB, AT4 tuner and PTCIIusb modem along with the
Xantrex battery monitor, Raymarine C80 radar /chartplotter (no longer on boat)
and a new Alder Barbor refrigeration system.

In 2007, we upgraded the autopilot to a Raymarine S1. The wheel pilot drive was later (2009)
replaced with a below decks linear drive for increased reliability and quieter operation.
The main sail was replaced by Doyle in Annapolis. (I have never replaced the jib, making it
over 10 years old. The standing rigging was replaced in Marathon FL. The acrylic and seals
were replaced professionally in the 8 main hatches. An Engel freezer was added (this is 43 quart portable
freezer/refrigerator that draws only 2.4A from the 12V system). A used spinnaker from
Bacon Sails in Annapolis was added. I don't know the age of the spinnaker, we just

got it to play with and it keeps going, season after season. A 75W solar panel
was added to bring the total capacity to 400W.

In 2009, we added an anchor washdown pump

In 2010,we repowered with new yamaha T9.9GPXR motors, wiring and binnacle control.
The windlass was replaced with a Quick Antares. 

In 2010 or 2011 a 200 W solar panel was added above the Bimini to bring the total
capacity to 600W for ample capacity in cloudy Panama. The panels are regulated by
a Blue Sky temperature compensated regulator for the 400W bank and a Sunsei
regulator for the 200W panel. Each regulator has an analog ammeter for instant
assessment of system output.

In 2011, we replaced the VHF with a Standard Horizon Matrix with AIS.

In 2013, the bottom was painted in Mazatlan.

In 2014, we added a Spectra 200T watermaker (I could be off by a year) and the fresh
water pump was replaced and the steering was serviced including replacement of some
conduit and cable. I think it was in 2014 that we replaced the chartplotter at the
helm with a Lowrance HDS5 which is interfaced to the AIS output from the VHF. 


In 2015, the outboards were serviced by the Yamaha dealer in Mazatlan, replacing
a leaking lower end seal.

In 2016, new bottom paint. New shore water inlet, New head, new tohatsu 6hp outboard.

In 2017, new through hulls and seacocks and upgraded burners for force 10 galley stove.
New cockpit shower. New house batteries.
