About Harmony

This page is a work in progress as are several on this blog. It will be finished soon!

SV Harmony is a 1981 Tayana 42 center cockpit sailboat. Here are a few of the specs:

Length Overall: 41'-9"
Length at Water Line: 33'-0"
Maximum Beam: 12'-6"
Draft: 5'-10"
Displacement: 29,147 lbs.
Sail Area: 1,009 sq. ft.
Ballast: 11,800 lbs.

To get ready for offshore cruising, we (or should I say Terry!) upgraded and replaced many of the systems onboard. Before we bought Harmony, she had been cruised extensively throughout much of the Western Hemisphere. She was a bit tired and needed a great deal of TLC. The list of refits includes, but is not limited to:

New Perkins Sabre 65 engine
Arch and dinghy davits
Solar Panels
Fiberglass Hardtop (dodger)
UK Halsey sails
Revere Liferaft
West Marine Hypalon RIB Dinghy
Simrad AP16/27 Autopilot
Furuno MFD8 Chartplotter/Radar
FI50 Wind Instrument
NMEA 2000 Bus
Icom M802 SSB Radio
Icom M504 VHF Radio
Spectra Cape Horn Watermaker
Rogue Wave Wifi
Replaced incandescent lights with LEDs
Refinished teak sole throughout, fabricated teak hatch screens
Replaced head plumbing
Majestic TV monitor

I won't tell you the list of things still to be completed!
