All panels lift to reveal convenient access to areas under foot. Her headliner is white vinyl panels with teak trim.

Refit Details

In 2013, SWANSONG received a new teak deck at Emerald Marine in Anacortes. The deck is vacuum bagged, meaning no fasteners attaching the teak planking to the subdeck. At this time, the deck layout was reconfigured and modernized with a new mast collar, halyard clutches, winch placement and genoa tracks. At the same time her spars were inspected and she received new standing and running rigging. Lifeline stanchions were replaced, along with the lifelines, turnbuckles and pelican hooks. All hatch lenses and four salon windows received new Lexan lenses.
