  5. Let the engine warm up for 5 minutes at 1000 rpm
  6. Check transom for water and exhaust (turn engine off immediately if no water is pumping out through the exhaust)
  7. When the engine is warm, gauges should read as follows: oil pressure ~50 psi and water temperature ~180 degrees

Stop Engine

  1. Let the engine idle for 5 minutes before shutting down
  2. Shift gear into neutral
  3. Push the “stop” button until the engine stops
  4. Turn off engine with key


AC Electrical Switches

Located at the navigation station. AC main breaker is located inside the port stern locker.

House Battery Switch

Located in the starboard aft cabin - labeled “domestic”. Horizontal is “on” and vertical is “off”. All batteries are in the port aft cabin under the berth.

Battery Charging

Charged by either shore power (make sure AC power and battery charger switch are turned ON) or by running the engine

Monitoring Batteries

Monitor levels when using DC services while the engine is not running.

Battery voltmeter is at the navigation station.

DC Electrical Panel

Located at the navigation station


GPS/Chart Plotter

Location: In the cockpit at the centerline between the helms.

To Operate: In the main cabin, turn “instruments” switch on the DC panel to “on” to activate

Navigation Instruments

Location: Above the companionway

To Operate:

  • In the main cabin, turn the “instruments” switch on the DC panel to “on”.
  • Depth meter: the middle gauge indicating the depth has been decommissioned. Depth can now be checked at the Plotter (Option: Vessel shows big numbers, but depth is also shown in every other single chart page). ASSUME DEPTH AT THE HULL -not at the bottom of the keel. The boat has a draft 6’6”.
  • Barometer, water temperature: these can be checked at the plotter or at the AIS device
  • Speed: This can be checked at the plotter

 **Do NOT change settings.**


This device is always connected to the battery - as the VHF radio and is not controlled by the instrument switch. It is important that the device is turned OFF after the boat is used or risk depleting the house batteries.



120% Genoa is on a rolling furler. Jib sheets lead back to the cockpit.

  • Uncleat the furling line and unfurl slowly (especially on windy days)
  • Get 2-3 wraps around the genoa with the sheets when done and lock off sheets on cleats


Mainsail is fully battened with lazy jacks.

  • Two reefing lines, traveler and halyards all lead back to the cockpit and are labeled at the clutches.
  • There is a solid boom vang.
  • Please use the topping lift to raise the boom to its usual position after sailing. Please make sure the boom is not resting on the dodger.

Location: Under v-berth/Under port aft cabin berth

Fill Caps: Forward portside/At transom portside – both labeled “water”

Tank Selector Valve:: To switch between tanks there are valves to change which tank the freshwater is coming from – located under the starboard settee.

Capacity: 100 gallons

Hot water heater: 10 gallons – located behind galley sink under wraparound settee

Fuel Tank

Location: Starboard aft cabin under berth

Fill Cap: Starboard transom – labeled “diesel”

Capacity: 34 gallons

Nothing goes in the bowl that has not been consumed first.

Do not flush toilet paper → put TP in trash.

Make sure the water intake seacock is open. Aft head seacock located under the head sink. Forward head seacock is under the forward starboard settee.

Head Operation:

  1. Move selector switch to wet bowl
  2. Pump 3-5 times to allow water into the bowl
  3. After use, move the selector switch to “dry bowl” and pump contents until the bowl is empty.
  4. Move the switch back to “wet bowl”, pump again a few times to bring in water, then change to “dry bowl”, pumping water through until the bowl is empty.
  5. Move handle into lock position when done

Bilge Pump

Bilge Pump (Electric)

Location: 3-way switch on panel at the DC panel

To Operate: Switch to “manual” for continuous or “auto” for intermittent with a float switch. Always leave the switch on “auto” before leaving the boat.

Bilge Pump (Manual)

Location: at the starboard helm

To operate:

  1. Remove cover and extend handle
  2. Move the handle up and down to allow the pump to prime. When the pump is primed, moving the handle will be harder, but keep pumping as water is moving through and out the bilge exit thru hull. Pumping will become easier as water exits the boat.
  3. Replace cover when done

Boat Systems


Sleeps 8 (max) between v-berth, 2 aft cabins and settees. Legs to lower the salon table to bed is under port settee. Use port settee cushions on the table to make a double berth.


Switch on DC panel – labeled “fridge unit”. Refrigerator box drains with manual foot pump at the galley sink. There is a red lever under the sink to switch between fridge drainage and fresh water pump. The drainage water drains out from the starboard side of the galley sink from the fresh water spigot.


Switch located in galley forward of the stove above the AC outlet. Please turn off the switch when not in use. The switch operates the solenoid which controls propane flow to the stove.

Galley Sink

Seacock located behind the sink under the settee. It is normally kept open. Water pressure can be turned on at the DC panel – labeled “water pump”. Manual fresh water pump also operates refrigeration drainage. Red lever under the sink switches between drainage and manually pumped fresh freshwater. Do not drink from the starboard manual pump spigot.

Head Sink

Forward seacock is located under forward starboard settee. Aft seacock is located under the sink inside the cabinet.

Hot Water Heater

A 10 gallon hot water heater is located behind the sink under the settee. Switch is located at the AC panel – labeled “water heater”.

Anchor & Windlass

Primary anchor: 45 lb. delta style anchor with 155 feet of 5/16” chain marked in 25’ increments (red, yellow, blue, white, green).

Electric Windlass: Breaker for the windlass is in the starboard aft cabin. There are two remotes. One is in the anchor locker or in the chart table. Engine MUST be running while the windlass is in use.
