Sails Kept on the Boat
General: The [Owners "Helpful Hints"] has various advice in the pages 4-5 "Sail Control" section.
Lazy Jack Installation Manual (no title) for the E-Z-JAX mainsail furling system. Page 4 of this manual gives operating instructions; the rest of the manual is e.g. parts identification and installation instructions.
The mainsail is normally kept furled on the boom with a sail cover.
The #3 Genoa (approximately 135%) is normally kept on the roller furler.
The #1 Genoa is a carbon-reinforced racing sail that is normally kept in the forward v-berth and used for racing.
The Asymmetric Spinnaker is normally kept in a spinnaker bag in the forward v-berth. It is equipped with a snuffer.
Note: Spinnaker pole storage on toe-rail requires periodic checking even on sails not using spinnaker, because of its current (Sep 2011) shortened length (see Ongoing Problems list.)

Companionway Hatch Removal
- Remove Forward Hatch Stop by removing three wood screws on the ceiling of the coach roof just forward of the companionway opening. Slide the stop out between the hatch and the coaming.
- Remove the wood screws holding the hatch rails to the hatch. All screws except the furthest forward screws will be accessible. Once these are removed, the rails may be rotated outboard and the hatch slid aft to access the last two screws. Remove the hatch.
The traveler is built of Harken "big boat" and HL (high load). The purchase is 4:1.
- track: 5 foot long Harken 32mm
- end controls: Harken 5170 with cam cleat
- car: Harken T3242B.HL
- The boom vang has been recently (09 March 2013) been repaired. The spring and the vang tube have been replaced. When the vang is installed, it will likely need adjusting to level the boom. This is accomplished by attaching a topping lift to the boom (the main halyard will serve this purpose well). When the weight of the boom is held by the topping lift, remove the two 10-32 allen head cap screws that are located on either side of the vang tube near where the red indicator tab is in the vang tube slot. These allen head cap screws fit into a series of threaded holes in the inner aluminum thick walled tube that carries the red indicator tab. This tube serves as the stop for the main vang spring. Raise or lower the boom until the proper threaded holes line up with the clearance holes in the outer tube and re-install the cap screws.
The "Engine & Drive" section, pp. 5-6, of the previous owner's "Useful Info" has some data about the power train and how to operate it.

- stbd mid cockpit 1" - engine in
- stbd cockpit 1.5" - scuppers
- port cockpit 1.5" - scuppers
- port cockpit 1/2" at waterline - propane drain
There are two vestigial thru-hulls, one for an impeller and the other for a depth transducer. These are located just aft of the main cabin forward bulkhead, beneath the cabinets.
There are two electric bilge pumps and two manual bilge pumps. The primary electric is a diaphram pump located in the cabinet beneath the nav station. The secondary is a submersible located in the center portion of the bilge well. Float switches for these pumps are located in the bilge well. The primary manual is located in the port bulkhead of the cockpit just forward of the helm. The secondary manual is located under the floorboards of the foul weather gear locker. It can be operated without removing the floorboards.
Individual auto-manual-off controls for each electric pump are located port of the nav station. These are energized by the always-on bilge pumps breaker in the main breaker panel.
All bilge hoses exit the boat starboard of center at the transom.
See the previous owner's Useful Info writeup, page 7, section headed "Bilge Pumps" for the previous configuration.

The head is a hand-operated marine toilet unit connected to a 25 gallon expanding holding tank. The output from the toilet goes into the holding tank. From the holding tank there are two hoses, one to a pump-out fitting on the deck, the other to a thru-hull under the forward cabin sink.
The forward facing panel beneath the sink in the forward cabin can be removed for access to the thru-hull valve.
The seawater in thru-hull is located port of center under the main cabin floorboards, just aft of the mast. A small mesh strainer is located inline soon after the thru-hull valve.
The toilet is Jabsco model 29090-2000 (compact bowl & seat).
Refrigerator / Ice Box
The refrigerator / ice box is located beneath the galley counter and can be accessed via two hinged hatches. There is a shelf in the refrigerator compartment that will accommodate ice blocks.
The refridgerator compressor is made by Alder/Barbour. The exact model is unknown but appears similar to the ColdMachine model.
The compressor runs on the 12V house battery and is located in the starboard lazarette outboard of the house battery box. The compressor is powered by a 15A breaker on breaker panel 2 above the galley sink. A thermostat in the ice box controls operation of the compressor.
The compressor has two blade type fuses located at the outboard aft corner:
- 15A Main
- 5A Fans
A diagnostic LED is on the rear panel; the cadence of the LED's flashing indicates the specific problem with the compressor.

There are two independent sets of batteries on the boat. The "Starter" battery is used for starting the engine. The "House" batteries supply power to most of the rest of the electrical equipment onboard.
Both banks of batteries are charged by the alternator through an ARCO BI-1602 battery isolator.
The Starter battery is a marine high-current AGM battery (not intended for deep cycle use). The battery is located in the port lazarette, next to the water heater, and under the propane tank. The starter battery is isolated by the Starter Battery Switch, currently located in the starboard lazarette, above the House batteries. (It is indended that this switch will be moved to the breaker panels above the galley sink some time in 2012.)
When the Starter Battery Switch is on, power is supplied to the following circuits through the "always on" 50 amp "Engine" breaker at the top of the galley breaker panels:
- Starter button on binnacle (connected to starter solenoid)
- HEHR voltage regulator unit
- Engine instruments in cockpit instrument panel
- Engine temperature sensors and oil pressure sensor
The Starter Battery Switch also sends power to the following circuit through the "always on" 10 amp "Fuel Pump" breaker.
- Electric inline Fuel Pump located under port settee, just aft of the fuel tank.
The House battery bank consists of one mixed-use (intended for starting and/or deep cycle use) AGM battery. This battery is located in the starboard lazarette, just aft of a bulkhead that separates the lazarette from the main cabin. The House battery compartment is usually covered by a white wooden tray that contains winch handles.
- Note: Prior to May 2012, two house batteries were connected in parallel. One of these two batteries was found to be unable to hold a charge, so it was removed.
The House battery bank is isolated by the House Battery Switch on the breaker panel above the galley sink. During normal operation of the boat, the House Battery Switch should be switched to the "House" position. This allows the house battery to be charged by the engine and it allows the house battery to power the various 12-volt devices through the breakers on breaker panels 1, 2, and 3.
The House battery switch should be switched to "OFF" when leaving the boat.
In an emergency, the House battery could possibly be used to start the engine by switching the House Battery Switch to "Both". This will tie the House batteries and Starter battery together in parallel. It is unknown whether or not this will cause fire or explosion. Please only try this in an emergency.
In an emergency the Starter battery could possibly be used to power 12-volt devices onboard, such as the VHF radio, by switching the House Battery Switch to "2". Please only try this in an emergency.
Circuit Breaker and Switch Panels
As of August 2012, There are four circuit breaker panels above the galley sink, and one switch panel.
- Note: Any circuits that are not currently connected will be labeled "N/C" with blue table at the circuit breaker.

Nav Lights Switch Panel
The dark grey plastic panel is a Blue Sea Systems "WeatherDeck Waterproof Fuse Panel". Most of the navigation lights on the boat are controlled through this six-position switch panel.
Power to this panel is supplied by the NAVIGATION LIGHTS MASTER circuit breaker on breaker Panel 1. Each of the six circuits is protected by an internal blade-type fuse. When power is supplied to the panel, and the corresponding fuses are not blown, then the circuit indicator labels will glow red. When the circuit is switched on, then the label will glow green. If the label does not glow, then the fuse is probably blown. Please see the instruction manual for fuse replacement.
