    Found Some Cool Stuff

    Saturday I had some time to dig around more in the new to me 2850 Contessa and came across some cool stuff (well I think so anyway)
    First I found a dash cover. I hadn't even noticed the snaps yet at the helm and I don't know if it's stock or not but I love it. Next I found a Volvo On Board Kit which is for keeping spare parts in. Cap, rotor points etc....Another Option? I've never seen one before. Yes, I will be restocking it! Next, a boot for the Bimini. Way cool. I thought I was go9ing to have to have one made. And it looks brand new! But wait there's more. I found screens for all the hatches including the mid berth and the magnetic type for the main cabin door. I am loving this boat.

    Re: the Volvo "oh, s**t kit. When I was with the Coast Guard Auxiliary, I crewed for another guy on one of the shuttle shot patrols. This was to be a 4;30 am launch so we were out all night.
    About 2;30 the sonalert warning went off and them temp gauge indicated overheat. We shut down. Now, I said "Where are we going to get an impellor in the middle of the night and get it here?" the owner said "Wait a minute, they had me buy an emergency kit when I bought the boat, I'll get it." It had the impellor and 1/2 hour later we were underway again. I strongly recommend spares. Even if you are a mechanical klutz,, someone nearby may be able to fix it. However, they do need parts.

      I would say that is rare stuff this far down the road, time wise. Pretty cool!
