I have a number of uninstalled fittings for the boat, including new nav lights, depth gauge, new custom made grab rails, a water tank, pump and sink, and two 48 inch Schaefer genoa lead T-tracks, also a new solar powered ventilation fan for the cabin. I removed the "galley" and built new steps, which opened up the cabin space considerably.
