We have extended our bow roller by 1 1/2 feet, putting a tack point for our aysms.We have made extensive fitting and equipment changes (oversize winches, Harkin roller furler, traveler, adjustable cars, rod rigging, new composite sails, tapered spar, BG electronics, and best of all --a Garmin chart plotter).Problems with boat:the aft lower chainplates were pulling through the deck and we added glassed in knees with adjustable rods attached to the bottom of the chainplates and eliminated the problem.

Avalon was fitted out with an almost new set of Hood sails: Furling genoa and high aspect jib, hank on heavy weather jib for the removable inner forstay, storm jib, genaker and full batten main and an older spinnaker. We keep Avalon on the Dutch Oosterschelde and mainly sail on the Dutch inland waters and Dutch and Belgian coastline of the North Sea, with an occasional trip to England or Northern France.
