About this Sailboat:
Second Lady is set up for live aboard cruising. She has a very reliable engine, storage for 300 gallons of water and diesel fuel, quality sails in excellent condition, and is power sufficient using solar panels and wind generator. All the power is stored in three seperate battery banks. She has state of the art electronics including multiple GPS’s, VHF, SSB and radar, and Autohelm autopilot and instrumentation. With three anchors, two of which are 65#, and with over 400 feet of chain rode she can be anchored most anywhere. From 1997 – 2000 she was on the hard undergoing a major refit that gutted the interior. In 2006 she had new gelcoat installed from the water line up. She is currently cruising in the Caribbean and will be in the ABC’s for the next year. Last survey was in 2009.
