    Rudder The Whitby 42 is notorious for having an undersized rudder. We had our boat's rudder enlarged, following guidelines provided by Ted Brewer to ensure the rudder's dimensions remained within the engineering specs of the rest of the steering gear.

    Steering. We added a second tiller arm to the rudder post and a second hydraulic steering system to accommodate the autopilot, completely separating the hydraulic systems of the steering wheel and autopilot. If there is a problem with one steering system, the other will be available. A couple of incidents convinced us that this is the safest way to configure our boat's steering.

    Galley. We had the counter tops in the galley replaced with corian. During that project we also replaced the galley sinks with two 12x13x7 1/2 inch stainless steel sinks and had corian dish storage and pantry covers installed. Corian counter tops were also installed in both heads.

    Fridge/freezer A Whitby 42's cooling box is a spill over system, with both sides being pretty large by sailboat standards. We decided to rebuild the box, making separate frig and freezer boxes, each with its own cooling system. The freezer is cooled by a Technautics Cool Blue 12 volt holding plate system and the frig has an Adler/Barbour 12 volt evaporator plate system.

    Stern Rail The tubular stern rail was extended, strengthening it and making it large enough to mount additional solar panels in the future.
