Spending a lot of time outdoors in the sun and heat requires some shade. I designed and fortunately found a very capable canvas expert to implement solutions in three areas.
|One piece windows cover|
|Sun deck bimini|
|Two piece cockpit screen|
|Use one or both pieces zipped|
The pilot house still had open side windows so I added curtains using Sunbrella's yellow fabric.

Additional storage on deck for fenders, a wash down hose, and a back up anchor was needed. The factory custom makes this great deck box to match the boat lines and shipped it out for me to install on the bow.

An Automated Information System (AIS) is required of commercial boats and causes information about their boat name, heading and speed, destination etc., to be transmitted frequently to other boats for display on their chart plotters and radar. I installed an AIS receiver to allow me to track these vessels around me and be sure I am out of their way. It is a valuable and important safety device. I put the electronics over the helm in the ceiling of the pilot house.
