Engel Freezer: A cabinet was built under salon table to store the Engel freezer. The Engel was put on heavy slides for easy access.
Nav Station Enclosed: Swivel chair was removed from nav station and cabinet added.
Pullman Berth: Added top row of cabinets for additional storage. Doors were fashioned to match original factory doors. A great place for storing clothes or linens. Added a top cabinet in the back berth as well.
Galley Cabinet: Added overhead cabinet with a stainless hand hold over sink.
Security Bars In Companionway: Stainless steel security bars were made to replace the middle hatch-board with a drop down screen on the outside for added security and to keep airflow in and bugs out.
Cabinet Doors Over The Stove: Custom cabinet doors were added to the standard microwave shelf over the stove. This added a large amount of storage space to the galley.
Refrigerator Sliding Trays Added: The refrigerator storage was customized with the addition of heavy duty, commercial grade, sliding trays. Additional insulation was also added as well to control the temperature and a remote temperature gauge allows for easy monitoring. The small freezer has a customized door on a sliding track with allows for easy access.
Making Ice: Commercial kitchen trays in the freezer also make it easy to always have ice available. The smaller trays on the right are filled halfway with water and once frozen, can be chopped up and transferred to the ice bucket.

The fuel polishing system consists of a Raycor 500 filter and a fuel pump that allows the fuel to be cleaned when the boat is stationary. Valves allow the flow of diesel fuel in and out of each tank to be controlled.
