Continuing with the trawler characteristics, safety features become mandatory inclusions. The sea chest for engines’ and generators’ intake and the discharge posts become a compelling way to eliminate the number of thru-hulls and appeal to the trawler aficionado’s compulsion for reducing risk potential. Of course the watertight engine room adds to that comfort level. Not only is there a full-size engine room entry from amidships through a watertight door, but there is also a smaller aft entry watertight door connecting with the master stateroom. Aside from convenience, it’s a nice safety feature to have an exit at each end of the engine room, perhaps the ultimate in redundant safety features. Aside from the 6’5” headroom and gargantuan size in general, noteworthy features include the centerline stainless steel work station and sink, meticulous labeling on all pipes and equipment, excellent wire bundling, and the sea chest as noted earlier. The sea chest intake picks up for the air conditioning (seven air compressors), the two main engines and the two 20kW generators. The discharge posts, standpipes, are for the air conditioning cooling water, galley sink, dishwasher and engine room bilges, where the ac condensate flows. The only other thru-hulls are for head discharge.
