Complete Raymarine / TackTick 'wireless' system with speed, depth, compass and wind sensors feeding four displays, one wind analogue display and three dual digital displays that each can display any two values of your choice out of about 30 NMEA readings. The VHF radio is also an AIS receiver and is fully bi-directionally integrated to the TackTick system and Garmin chart plotter. Hence AIS targets can be seen on the chart plotter or on the VHF radio screen and even called directly by point and click on the radio.
My family have owned the boat 28 years, with 18 of those myself as sole owner. Westerly built the boat with a pair of winches at the mast and all activity had to be conducted there. I have converted all the running rigging (except foresail halyard) to be led back to the cockpit. Similarly, although it was originally fitted with mainsail boom roller reefing, because of the sail stacker fitted, this can't be used and instead is now fitted with single line reefing again fed back to the cockpit.
Built in 1973 by Westerly Yachts to a design by John Butler. White painted GRP hull. Teak rubbing strake. White GRP superstructure with grey painted non-slip to deck. Fin keel. Spade hung rudder. Tiller steering. Aft self-draining cockpit.
Masthead rigged sloop. Anodised aluminium mast and boom. Stainless steel standing rigging. Terylene running rigging. Roller reefing mainsail. Furling headsail (Plastimo). Symmetrical spinnaker in yellow. Full length spinnaker snuffer. When not in use, spinnaker pole kept mounted vertically to front of mast.
