CHEROKEE: EQUIPMENT LIST AND GENERAL YACHT OPERATION

Aft Storage and/or Deck:

The area contains 1 additional Danforth anchor and line, 1 50 water hose with nozzle, 1 50 power cable with 2 Y adapters, 4 red dock lines, 2 blue/green spring lines, 3 blue fenders, 2 captain’s deck chairs, 1 54 quart Igloo cooler, 1 cleaning bucket with deck brushes and cleaning supplies, 1 Byer wooden folding table, and 1 emergency tiller.

 

Main Salon:

The area contains 4 decorative pillows; 1 decorative blanket; 3 interior forward window covers; 1 Embassy Rhode Island and Massachusetts; 1 Embassy Long Island Sound; assorted charts for the cruising area; 1 tide clock; 1 Oregon scientific weather forecaster; 1 Sky Scan; 1 Chapman's Piloting; 1 solar panel; 1 Chart Kit Region 3; 1 Chelsea clock; 1 Chelsea barometer; 1 Raytheon R10X Raster Scan Radar; 1 Standard Horizon Eclipse + VHF radio; 1 Sony CD/AM/FM radio; 1 Xxxxx GPS for the bridge; musical CDs; required emergency equipment plus assorted possible emergency items; assorted tools; and assorted yacht cleaning supplies.

 

Galley:

The area contains 4 place settings of dinner ware including 4 dinner plates, 4 salad plates, 4 bowls, and 4 coffee mugs; 6 place settings of flatware; and assorted utensils, pots, and pans; and 1 Mariner propane grill [located under the starboard cushions in the main salon with propane canisters located under the port seat on the bridge].

 

 Dinghy:

The yacht includes an 8' West Zodiac, 1  3.0 hp Johnson motor, 1 gas funnel, and 1 2.5 gallon plastic gas container.

 

Topsides:

The topsides includes 1 boat hook, 1 life sling, 1 bow flag post with flag, 1 aft flag post with flag, 1 halogen spot light in the bridge cabinet, 1 Robertson rudder setting display, 1 steadying sail under the port bridge seat, covers for all exterior windows under the port bridge seat, and 1 spotlight with joy stick.

 

Miscellaneous:

A separate start battery and 2 separate house batteries exist for the yacht electronics.  However, be mindful that even a new, power efficient refrigerator can discharge the batteries depending upon use.  Therefore, it is prudent to run the engine at least 30 minutes 2 times per day if Cherokee has not traveled during the day to recharge the batteries although they are connected to a solar charger on the bridge.  The refrigerator may be run when the vessel is underway or on shore power without concern.  The method is simply prudent.

 

Be aware that the un-burned diesel fuel return is to the port fuel tank.  THEREFORE, WHEN REFUELING, PLEASE BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL IN THAT THE PORT TANK WILL MOST LIKELY BE CLOSE TO FULL AND THE STARBOARD TANK WILL TAKE THE MAJORITY OF THE FUEL.  MOREOVER, EPA ISSUES IF YOU HAVE A FUEL SPILL ARE NOT PLEASANT.

 

Interior cleaning supplies and trash bags are located under the galley sink.

 

Each day, check all engine fluids and seacocks.  If the engine fluids need to be replenished, save the receipts and you will be reimbursed.  Oil is located under the starboard seat next to the cabinet.

 

The flatware is located under the captain's chair in the main salon.

 

The propane switch for the stove is located in the ceiling next to the pantry that must be opened in addition to opening the propane canister in the cabinet on the bridge.  The propane will be turned off in both locations when not in use.

 

The oven burner is located under the shelf in the oven compartment.  The pilot is located next to the oven burner near the first port.  To light the pilot, hold a match under the end of the pilot fitting and depress the red button on the top of the stove.  After the pilot is lit, continue holding the red button down for at least 30 seconds, then release.  If the pilot flame does not stay lit, repeat the procedure.  To use the oven, turn the thermostat above 250 degrees until the entire burner lights.  Then adjust the thermostat to the desired temperature.  When finished with the oven, turn the thermostat to OFF.”  The pilot will stay lit.  After each use, TURN THE PROPANE SWITCH OFF SO THAT THE OVEN WILL NOT STAY LIT FOR SAFETY.  Also, to my knowledge no one has ever used the oven.

 

The stainless steel grill is located in the storage are under the aft cockpit.  The propane canisters for the grill are located under the port aft bridge seat.  The grill is attached on the stern port side.

 

Adult life jackets are located under the starboard bridge seat.  Children's life jackets are not provided.  If you have life jackets, I would bring them.

 

The bridge cover is located under the port bridge seat, the cover will be used during inclement weather.

 

The GPS for the bridge will be stored inside the boat when not in use, at night, and during inclement weather.

 

Fire extinguishers are located under the captain's chair in the main salon, under the steps to the forward cabin, and in the cabinet on the bridge.

 

The dinghy will not be towed with the motor attached.  The motor will be attached to the hanger underneath the bridge steps when not in use.

 

Located in the cabinets and drawers in the main salon under and behind the captain's chair is literature pertaining to the operation of the yacht and its equipment; key for the safe; key for the yacht; key for the water, fuel, and holding tanks; and Chelsea clock key.

 

The unmarked pull switch at the bottom of the power panel has 2 functions.  First, it must be activated in addition to the pull switch in the head to operate the bilge pump for the shower.  Second, it must be activated in addition to the pull switch marked anchor to operate the electric windlass.

 

Required emergency equipment plus assorted possible emergency items are located in the main salon under the immediate starboard seat.  Again, the emergency tiller is located in the aft storage starboard under the floorboard.

 

Although assorted tools are located under the main salon port seat, these items will not be accessed unless absolutely necessary.  You will assume responsibility for any repairs that you complete.

 

The manual bilge pump is located under the main salon port seat.

 

Leave the solar panel attached to the cigarette lighter receptacle in the main salon at all times that the yacht is not in operation to ensure adequate battery power.

 

The engine will not be started with either the shore power on or connected to the yacht.  You will cause significant damage to the electrical system if you do otherwise.

 

The yacht's transmission gears will only be changed at approximately 800 RPMs.

 

The yacht's engine maximum cruising RPMs will not exceed 1800.

 

Any necessary repairs to the yacht or dinghy which will exceed $100 will receive prior approval for reimbursement.

 

Any damage to the yacht or dinghy which appears to exceed $100 will be immediately reported.  You are self-insured for the dinghy and outboard which means that you are financially responsible.

 

Any damage to the yacht or dinghy which does not appear to exceed $100 will be reported at the end of the charter.

 

Any equipment, which did not appear to properly function, will be reported at the end of the charter.
