[On deck, cockpit view]

On deck, cockpit view. The pedestal has a nice grab rail. On the left side of the grab rail, you can see a small white platform where I mount the Magellan GPS while out cruising. I use a DC power adapter to run it off the boat's battery, and run the power wire straight up to a velcro loop on the dodger, then forward to another loop and down to a DC outlet just below the engine instrument panel (next to the companionway). On the forward side of the grab rail is a small folded-up teak cockpit table. The wheel has a stainless steel hub ring which is how the windvane turns the wheel (the control lines are not hooked up at present). At about the 10 o'clock position on the hub ring, you can see the control that disengages the inner and outer hub rings, so you can manually steer even with the windvane control lines hooked up. In the forward port corner of the cockpit, you can see where I store the Coleman PowerMate generator. I currently have the generator off the boat—it stopped working, probably due to lack of use. At the forward end of the cockpit well, you can see where I store the lexan companionway drop boards. The port cockpit locker is dedicated to propane tank storage. Almost out of view at the bottom left is the white holder where I keep the handheld VHF while underway.
