More photos

I have been going through my photos of Windarra while at the yard in Trinidad. Here are a few that you might be interested in.

Along with Windarra is a 9 foot Caribe hard bottom dingy. We bought the dingy in 2008 and it will plane quite nicely with the Mercury 15 HP outboard. The crane on Windarra's aft quarter makes it easy to move the outboard from the stern pulpit to the stern of the dingy and vice versa. The compartment in the front of the dingy provides a place for foot pump, bailer, and a small anchor.

In addition to the new bow stem is a new anchor roller that you can see mount in this photo. The anchor roller pivots as well.

The Edson teak cockpit table opens to provide comfortable dining for 4.

The cockpit is large enough for an adult to stretch out while at anchor or on passage off watch. All sheets as well as the main halyard and reefing and furling lines are led back to the cockpit so there is no need to go on deck to change sail configurations or reef. The powered Lewmar primaries assist for raising the main as well as the Yankee sheets. The boom vang supports the boom eliminating the need for a topping lift. It permits sailing Windarra short handed if the need arises. The bimini is new 2017 and it mates perfectly with the canvas surrounds with windows or the sunshade surrounds. Windarra also has Bottomsider cushions for the cockpit.
