ConditionEngine was removed from the boat in 2003. The work done includes..... - New shaft and cutlass - Exhaust upgrade - New engine mounts Orion has been professionally maintained for more than a decade by two local boatyards, Parkers in Cataumet and Wooden Tangent in Mattapoisett. All Coast Guard required safety equipment has been acquired and put aboard the vessel; new anchor and attendant rode ([chain and line), man-overboard rescue system. Additionally a portable Freon horns, a rechargeable and direct wired search lights and new fire extinguishers. NOTES ON MAINTENANCE Fuel System: Fuel Hose, Racor Filter, Shut Off at Tank Fuel Filter: Primary (next to tank) Raycor 500FG (fuel/water separator); Secondary (at rear of engine). OTHER MAINTENANCE (May 2015, from seller) My plans are to get the boat in the water at the end of June and to photograph it thoroughly. I have a professional photographer and have made arrangements for a chase boat to carry the photographer while Orion is under sail. Also plan to photograph her on a mooring against a flattering background. Also will take numerable photos of the interior which is very pretty with lots of varnished wood. The only upkeep necessary is to buff out the topsides and lay up a couple of coats of varnish on the exterior bright-work. The mast and other spars are perfect. The mast was professionally stripped to bare wood and then eight coats of varnish a couple of years ago. This was done again in the fall of 2018. Orion is ready to splash....
