Main Engines

For now this section is a collection of photos of the boat as she was at the time we picked her up in 2003. The updated conditions are highlighted as the repairs occured.

One of the two original Sterling Viking II Engines setting in the weeds. We plan to bring this to Seattle as part of the project. [OOps, too late, the metal recycler hauled it off for scrap. The second one that went to the engine museum also went to the scrap yard. They could never get it to a point of turning over.)

Rudder and Steering

All of the original hardware is still in place.


Over the years it appears that the 20mm was mounted aft, then forward and then back aft again. This is a collection of photos and drawings that we used to create our fake 20mm mounted on the fantail.


Fresh Water
The original tanks are removed. There are no tanks now.
