Tivoli is a remarkable vessel. Every trip increases our confidence in her seakeeping abilities. She takes good care of us in the worst of conditions. We, in turn, do our best to take good care of her. The big upgrades are done; it is fun to finally hone in on the smaller items now. Those things that have been on the “to do” list for some time. We have plumbed in our spare hydraulic steering pump, added a small Engel freezer to the lazarette, replaced the old halogen deck lights with LEDs, replaced the front crankshaft seal and vibration damper on the Lugger, serviced the fuel injection pump on the genset, replaced the packing in the wing engine shaft packing gland, updated our paper and electronic Caribbean charts, replaced an IS20 display with an IS40 for better daytime visibility, cleaned carpets, applied Huper Optik film to the pilothouse windows, installed a magnetic sensor in the windlass for our chain counter, new bow rollers, added smart regulators…and a dozen smaller tweaks. We are “dialing in” the boat. Great hardware is in place for all systems with spares in storage. All of this to keep her in good health to carry us safely wherever we may choose to go.
