Left Picture: You may notice the table that folds to the bulkhead. The previous owners transformed the right side settee to a berth by removing the chart table and extending it into the wardrobe.

Right Picture: These are the electronics of the boat when bought. A VHF (Ocean Star 240) and a Depth Sounder (Navico ES 120 T). Both these serve still the boat.  The Depth Sounder as a backup since I have installed a  Raytheon (Raymarine) Bidata (depth sounder and speed meter). The VHF until in time is replaced by a DSC capable unit.

Left Picture: On the left side of the front bulkhead hangs a wooden glass shelf to accommodate the nearby Bar of the boat. This was removed in the summer of 2003 as it proved not needed.

Right Picture: Detail of the transformation of the settee to a full berth.

 

Looking (backwards) under the companionway. Above the engine room there are the main electrical switches. Two for the batteries and a third one for the electric anchor windlass that I installed in the spring of 2000. Nearby (not shown in this picture) are the engine instruments. On the right (left side of the boat) there is another berth that we use mainly for storing gear. On the left (right side or starboard side of the boat) is the galley.

Although it looks like a mess, the internal condition of EFAKI was rather good. All woodwork was recently varnished so I didn't have to bother. 

Things that were taken care of included among others: 

- Rewiring the engine and the electric panel.

- Installing a new pipe from the external Propane locker to the stove.

- Installing a pressurized water system and new piping.

- Making new covers to all the cushions.

- Installing a new manual sea toilet in the heads in the place of an old and broken Lavac.

The engine needed a lot of work but this is presented in a separate page.
