1979 Prout Quasar Catamaran. Did a complete refit from 2001 to 2008 and are in the process of having her re-certified by the Coast Guard.

Am quite surprised by the poll... almost 80% of the boats are 20 or more years old. Anyone care to guess why?

total refit

my boat is a William Atkin's design, designed in 1949 (Atkin & Co. - Captain Cicero) and built in 1968-72. The interior and everything for that matter is pretty sparse and has been that way it's entire life. This summer I moved off the boat into a house with woodshop for 4 months so I can do a complete refit. Redesign of galley, main cabin and foreward cabin, new hatches, lifeline stantions, ugraded electrical (4 deep cycle marine and a d-8), additional lighting, all LED, wind vane, adding two speed winches, etc....as well as dressing the old girl up a bit. My final goal is to have her ready for extended cruising for two anywhere. You can live on a boat, but not be ready for sailing or go sailing but not be set up to live on comfortably, I want both.
