Since I have owned Horsefeathers (2001) I have replaced the toe rail, Hatch covers, all wiring, applied Interlux interprotect system, Hoses for fuel, exhaust, cooling and any other that might give trouble.

Normal maintained has been done every year I have not listed a lot of the smaller items that will go with the boat but feel that only some personal preference items will need to be added to it’s inventory for a new owner
