Chere has been moored in covered moorage in Lake Washington approximately 10 months per year for the whole period we have owned her and has been professionally maintained. She still looks like new. Her engine has been run 619 hours to date.
Separators on cockpit seat boxes were added to convert each side to separately drained and sealed compartments. The port aft compartment has an independent drain which makes it useful as a dinghy gas and BBQ propane locker. The starboard aft compartment is insulated for use as a cooler or drink compartment. The cockpit seating is Sunbrella and includes snap-on covers for protection when not in use. Both stateroom bunks are fitted with custom bedding including mattress pads, fitted sheets, coverlets and shams with detachable down-like insert on main stateroom only.

Operation of Dinghy Hoist – When the dinghy is hoisted the dinghy hoist is usually left with a bit of slack in the line to allow cover over electric winch to protect the hoist motor and cord, which is unplugged from socket and stored on Velcro flap. Electrical socket is covered with plug. To lower dinghy, remove line holding motor centered on motor mount, remove strut connecting dinghy to starboard stern. plug in electrical plug, turn on Rear Thruster Switch to furnish power to hoist, turn on remote, remove pin holding engine mount to hoist while holding dinghy handle to prevent sudden abrupt motion of dinghy taking up slack line, then lower with remote Extend button. When motor skeg is bumping dinghy tube stop lowering, raise motor to allow skeg to clear tube, then complete lowering. Remove snap shackle from motor mount and insert pin to capture motor mount to stern. To raise dinghy remove pin connecting engine mount to stern, connect shackle to hoop on engine mount, turn on Rear Thruster Switch, turn on remote, then raise with remote Retract button until engine skeg is bumping dinghy tube. Stop hoisting, raise engine to clear tube, then continue hoisting until pin hole in dinghy mount is within an inch of pin hole in hoist arm, then stop hoisting and either pull dinghy toward stern of boat or push down on hoist line to bring two pin holes in alignment to allow inserting the pin to connect engine mount to end of hoist arm. Turn off remote, tie line to center engine and keep it from swinging as boat moves, connect strut to tie bow of dinghy to boat stern, unplug hoist motor from boat and replace cover over hoist motor and plug.
Removal and Replacement of Dinghy Hoist – Hoist arm can be removed, rotated, stored off its mounting or replaced when not in use. To remove arm remove the 4 socket-head bolts in the plate of the arm and pull arm straight up. Arm can be plugged in rotated 90 degrees CW to store it in a position that leaves the swim platform clear of obstruction or can be replaced in the normal hoisting position and the bolts replaced to secure the arm in position. For travel without the dinghy, the arm can be removed and the SS cover plate stored under the helm hatch can be bolted to cover the hoist arm socket of the boat using the same sealing rubber sheet as used on the arm plate to prevent water leakage.
Backup Manual Hoist – In the event of a failure in the electrical hoist system, the dinghy can be lowered or hoisted using the manual hoist stored under the cockpit hatch. This hoist mounts on the dinghy hoist arm using the same mounting holes as the block at the end of the hoist arm.
