SKA spacious interior is beautifully finished in hand-rubbed teak and features two private cabins forward and aft. The fwd cabin has one double V-berth with filler and full hanging locker, and the aft cabin has a double & single berth with full hanging locker and storage compartments. In the main salon, there are two pilot berth, plus comfortable settee berths. A teak dining table is a drop down style which seats six easily. The galley has a 3-burner stove (new, 2013) along with a propane detector, with a remote solenoid and alarm (new, 2013). The gas lines were also all replaced in 2013. Ska has an icebox as well as a large refrigeration unit located under the top of the stand-up style nav station. Wet hanging locker, two large hanging lockers, and various other lockers/bins provide ample storage.
Hot and cold pressure water, three stainless steel fresh water tanks for a total of 106 gallons; two bilge pumps (one in cockpit, one in galley area); a large 25-gallon holding tank with a Sealand T-pump for pumping the holding tank when outside the 3-mile limit (new, 2005). A new, larger IsoTherm hot water tank was added in 2013. The enables water to be heated from either shore-power, a generator, or from the engine.

In 2013 the teak deck was replaced by a non-skid deck and the work was monitored by an independent surveyor throughout the process. A blue sprayed, cockpit table, and stern mounted swim ladder. The swim ladder was modified so it stands a few inches further off the transom, making it easier to go up and down the ladder from a dinghy or when swimming off the stern.
Engine and Mechanical
A new 39 hp Yanmar (virtually the same weight and dimensions as the old 23 hp MD-11C) was installed in 2013 along with a new alternator, muffler, shaft, cutlass bearing, and a classic MaxProp. New control cables, battery cables, fuel filter housings, and a larger water intake were also installed, along with numerous other additions. The new engine and MaxProp enables Ska to cruise over 7 knots - important when beating out of a harbor with the wind on the nose.
