    We hauled Vigorous and did a ton of work this winter:

    - stripped and painted bottom
    - new sea valves
    - pulled shafts , verified true, serviced props, etc.
    - installed new transducers for all new Simrad electronics
    - packed rudders
    - new shaft seals

    Basically inspected, serviced or overhauled everything from the deck edge down. Just finished our first fishing trip of the season

    I agree, the boat looks good. I just always find it odd to see big SF's without outriggers....hehehe

    I have outriggers for it but I took them off and put them is storage. I wouldn't use them up here and they are just in the way. I also removed the big live well that was in the center of the cockpit when I bought the boat. It's in staorage as well.

    Vigorous is hull number 5 of the Z-54's. I believe there were only 6 of these built. The boat was brought to So. California from Florida in 2008. I bought it early last year and at the time it was named Tiger Shark II. Previous name was Mr. T's and I have the original name somewhere but not with me currently. I shipped the boat to Victoria, BC then ran it to her new home in Ketchikan, Alaska.
    The boat has had a lot of custom features added:
    - additional 8kw gen set and retains original 20kw
    - custom refer/freezer above the galley range
    - reworked interior sofa, settee and pop-up tv, electronics, etc
    - eskimo ice machine for fish box
    I have done a lot of work since last year
    - new Maxwell windlass and rode
    - rebuilt refer/freezer front and doors
    - all new Simrad electronics, AP, radar and 3 (ea) NSS 12" touch screens
    - new cockpit freezer system capable of -10 degrees
    - installed tempered glass windshields and wipers on flybridge
    - new downriggers and power in cockpit for salmon trolling
    - new dedicated 12v batteries for DDEC fed from 24v alternators
    - replaced all fuel lines on both engines and gens
    - we've been through every system on the boat and either brought maintenance current or repaired as necessary. The boat was neglected for the last several years.
