Echo 28 (Page 2)

I had an inquiry asking for photos of the interior. Since I had no recent ones, I carted down some equipment that was in winter storage at home, mounted it temporarily and unpropped the cushions that were stacked for ventilation over the winter.

Then I took a bunch of photos. There was a fair bit of equipment to move around, so the photos were taken in stages.

Note that the boat has an entire season's accumulated grime and dust. I made no attempt to do any cleaning. The boatyard is near a cement plant and cleaning up the stack and boatyard dust is a normal spring project. This will be a pre-launch procedure. It's relatively easy as the dust comes off readily.

Edson Wheel Steering

Throttle and gear shift are on the pedestal. Note that there are NO belts or pulleys for the autopilot. The drive unit and clutch are all below deck out of the way of fingers. The unit is connected via a quadrant and pulley system totally independent of the main steering. There's also a tiller available, so there are three independent ways to steer the boat.
