Completely refit, this CAT shines!!
This vessel has undergone a complete refit! The engines were new 80hp Lombardini sail drives; the rig was a Z spar. Foxglove 2 was solid glass in the hulls and glass/foam/glass for the cabin top and decks. Installedthe holding tanks and wastes, drains, pumps, hot and cold water and ducting for the electrician. Maxwell hatches and Harken deck gear. With only four winches, all the same size so all the parts are interchangeable. Harken planned the deck layout with all new gear. because the main traveller is on the cabin top, I designed a hydraulic mainsheet and traveller system. There are two rams in the front locker which run across the boat: one works the traveller; the other, the mainsheet, so the mainsail control is all push-button. The to ...

|While all this was happening, the saloon was tidied up to perfect the imperfections. The basic technique was: fill the big holes, sand the high bits, apply a rough coloured coat, sand again, fill again, sand, apply colour, sand, fill colour, sand, fill until finally it was ready for painting. Painters are a strange lot; I don't have the patience for it but there's a huge sense of satisfaction when the masking tape comes off and there is the work in all its glory. All-round windows made it light and un-cluttered, and with the adjoining galley, it is great for entertaining. In the galley we fitted a domestic fridge and four-burner stove, plus a freezer under the seat for the chart table. The benchtops are 3mm composite material that looks great and is easy to clean. The saloon is the standard U shape and seats nine; the table top is burr walnut with a teak, bull-nose edge. BEP Marine spec'd the electrics. We used mostly LED lights, controlled by a C-Zone system with backlit switches. In the cockpit, LEDs on the rear arch change colour and there are tiny LED lights on the aft steps to help you find your way back onboard at night. BEP switch/breaker panels control the 12 and 240V power, which allows multiple power sockets throughout the boat. The 240 comes in from the shore or by way of the 9kVA generator in the starboard mid bow, just in front of the forward cabin. The generator locker has full headroom and is also the place to house the watermaker. The port side mid-bow has a storage area / workshop with built-in shelves. The electrical systems are controlled from a locker in the saloon beside the nav station, which also houses the Furuno plotter/radar, VHF and stereo. The 12V house batterys are 600 amps; there are three start batteries which can be linked if required. Both hulls have hot water courtesy of separate electric/gas, 20-litre Quick Recovery water heaters. Bi-fold doors separate the saloon and cockpit. There are two steps up to the rear cockpit, and two helm stations with seating for two and electronic engine controls and Furuno wind, speed, depth, remote anchor switch and autopilot. A seat runs across the back of the cockpit with access to both sets of transom steps. The davit is a solid stainless u-shaped tube which hinges at the deck and lies against the arch when not in use. The Maxwell 2500 series windlass is just in front of the mast and headsail track. The anchor stays on the bow but chain runs in a conduit under the trampoline to the windlass, to keep the foredeck clear. Finally, 18 months after moving Foxglove from Okahu Bay to the shed, we launched her and went sailing. After all the planning and decisions, the result is a catamaran that is extremely easy to sail. Foxy is so forgiving I can wander up to the foredeck and adjust something like the main outhaul and then wander back, make a slight move on the helm before going inside to grab a beer and return to the helm with enough time to relax into the helm seat before checking the course, slight adjustment, wave as we pass a monohull, while bringing the main on with the button. It's not all bad, this cat sailing, of course if that is too difficult then the auto pilot will look after the direction while we enjoy the ride.|
