General Arrangement

Main Deck
Starting at the forward end of the main deck are the twin anchor capstans.  These capstans feature independent motors and are independently controlled.  Anchor chain is 1 ¼ inch stud link with 8 shots (720') on the Stbd. side and 9 shots (810') on the Port side. Anchors are both 2,000 lb. Navy stockless.  Next aft on centerline is an electric hydraulic crane installed in August of 2000.  The crane has a Safe Working Load capability of 16,000 lbs at 28 ft. reach.  The crane cable is 7/8 inch dia. and the crane is controlled with a remote console on the end of a 30 foot pendant as well as a console on the port side of the crane base.  Next aft on centerline is the hatch leading to the cargo hold, while to port and stbd. are the tenders. To Port is the 29 foot Blackfin, to stbd is the 22 foot Boston Whaler.  There is access through the doghouse between the tenders to the crews quarters.  On the Foredeck aft is covered alfresco dining for 12 on a varnished teak slatted table and chairs. Next aft is the main deck house.  The forward  2/3rds (approximately) of the fore and aft portion of this structure is flush to the sides of the vessel full beam. The remaining 1/3 (approximately) is set in from the sides allowing side decks accessible from the interior of the vessel and in turn leading to the aft deck. 

On the centerline at the forward end of the house is a door leading to the main fore and aft granite passageway through the main deck house.  At the  forward end of this passage, to port next to the centerline doorway are stairs down to the lower crew’s accommodations. To port of the crew stairs is the Main Office.  This room has four opening polished brass portholes, teak parquet floors, painted paneling and varnished trim, with four workstations.

To starboard is the main dining salon.  There are two large wine racks as well as built in china and glass cupboards on the aft wall. The dining table seats 12. The interior was remodeled during the summer of 2000 and features large rectangular windows that replaced four of the five portlights that were originally installed.  The windows are of 1/2 inch scratch resistant Lexan set in custom built S/S frames.
