New canvas and isinglass installed in the spring of 2011 from the Radar Arch forward, there is full canvas from the arch back, I believe it is original and was not used much before I purchased he boat. It has appeared to shrunk some what but is still usable. There is also a full cockpit cover the covers the windshield and the complete opening up top. It needs some work snaps and I believe it has also shrunk a little. The complete transom was rebuilt by a local marina, and before launching the boat in the spring of 2010.A/C water pump was replaced, the top end of the generator was rebuilt, and a new AquaT Marine electric head was installed. I put a new refrigerator in spring of 2012, Alpine sound system (2) 10” Alpine marine subs, (4) 7” Alpine marine co-axle speakers, (1) 5 channel digital Alpine marine amp and Alpine Marine Head unit, (2) digital display mounted remote controls, one at the driving station and one on the transom, both are water proof. (4) new Interstate battries were installed, (2) deep cycles for the house bank and (1) for each motor. A new Xantrex 40 Amp battery charger was installed in 2012. A new Seaward Hot Water Heat was installed in the spring of 2010 as well as a new Shurflo pressure water pump.
The boat has been dry docked since October of 2014, upon summarizing the motors last spring it was discovered that there was a small crack in the starboard motor. The marina said it looks like it has been there, and was not from this year. They ran the motor up to temperature and made sure that the water was not getting into the oil, this is a super facial crack in the out side of the block only. The marine has fix the crack and test the motor again and stated that it is not leaking. This is an older boat and is not perfect. It has some other small issues that need to be addressed. The start on the A/C has issues and sometimes you have to mess with the A/C to get it running, it works great once started, I had an A/C friend tell me it is a $20 part (the compressor starter) but did not replace it. The housing for the oil Gauge for the starboard motor is broken, the gauge works the plastic bezel is broken.
