All of the controls of Windsong including the setting of sails can be done from the helm station. The instrument module contains all Raymarine sea-talk instruments connected through a sea talk interface. The Raymarine E-120 Multifunction Display (Radar, Chart, Depth, AIS 250, instruments, etc., etc.) can be seen with the Raymarine Smart Pilot, ST6002 (on the left side), which controls the Raymarine SG3 auto-pilot (located below deck). The Bow Thruster controls are on the right of the e-120 MFD in the large Nav-Pod. The Anchor Windlass Controls (both power up and down) and the Remote COMMANDMIC III Microphone for the IC-M504 VHF receiver (located at navigation station, below deck) can be seen to the left and the right of the Westerbeek Engine Control cluster. All vital instruments are at eye level to the Captain’s helm seat. There are also foot controls for the windlass at the bow. The helm has a folding destroyer wheel which allows an uncluttered pass through of the cockpit when not underway. In addition, a Raymarine ST60+ control cluster of instruments are located just above the hatch which can be seen from the helm. This consists of the Depth, Wind & Close Hauled Wind Instrument, and Speed. There are two independent speed meters and two depth sounders on Windsong wired to the respective recording devices. For example, the ST60+ depth and speed through hull indicators are located mid boat hull and are connected to the ST+60 depth and speed instruments. The DSM 300 recording device (Speed and echo sounding device for depth finding and fish finding) is located toward the bow and is connected to the E-120 MFD. This arrangement provides back-up in case one sensor fails.
Engine Compartment, Fuel System and Bilge Pumps
A Westerbeke 58 hp engine is connected to a Borg-Warner velvet drive hydraulic marine transmission and a Walter V-drive which turns a shaft through a PSS seal, attached to a 20” three blade Max prop. On the starboard side of the compartment is a dual Racor filter manifold which allows for changing filters while underway. The fuel system consists of two, 40 gallon stainless tanks located under the port and starboard settees in the main salon. The fuel is fed through a manifold located forward of the engine compartment which allows for the selection of each tank separately, or to an off position. The diesel fuel then goes to a fuel polishing system consisting of an Algae-X bacteria destroyer and then to the 2 micron Racor filters before entering the final 2 micron filter on the engine, with excess fuel going back to the tanks. This system allows for the selection of an additional 12 volt fuel pump so the fuel can be polished separately of the running of the engine, while at a slip. There is also a remote Oil filter which positions the filter near the front of the engine for clean and effortless changing of the filter. Also is a Jabsco emergency, engine operated, electric clutch pump system which allows for over 30 gallons per minute of bilge pumping, in case of accidental hull puncture or through hull failure. An automatic bilge pump which can be activated from a switch to the right of the sink in the galley. There is another bilge pump which can be operated form the cockpit and an additional high volume (one gallon per lever movement) hand operated bilge pump located under the seat of the navigation station. In total there are 4 separate bilge pumps which should take care of any emergency until repairs can be made. A new temperature operated gas (non-Halon) operated fire extinguisher is on the wall of the engine compartment.
