Camille is for Sale… Again!

001-DSCF6161

Our previous boat Camille has been in the hands of a great owner for the past two years. A growing family forces them to downsize and sell Camille. They haven’t used her much and I hear she is in similar condition as when we sold her. She was a great cruising boat with a huge swim step and lots of light and ventilation. Located in San Francisco, California

Highlights

  • Watermaker – high output
  • Solar – 300 watts
  • Very low engine hours on Yanmar
  • Dinghy and outboard
  • Electric windlass with 200′ of chain

Saloon with 6’6″ of headroom, complete with a convertible dinette and facing settee with warm teak-and-holly sole throughout. Nearly all interior bulbs have been replaced with warm LED.

Galley has Corian counters and is big enough for two. Lots of counter space and storage, side-by-side refrigerator and freezer, ForceTen oven/3-burner stove, microwave, and a top loading trash bin set beside the double basin stainless sink with pressure hot and cold water.

Private V-berth includes vanity with sink and storage as well as plenty of cedar lined hanging locker space. Aft is the master stateroom with a queen berth, seat, lockers and two hanging closets.

Dual access head offers a Corian covered vanity, VacuFlush marine head (no smell) and shower stall, all wrapped in a complete fiberglass shell for easy cleaning and maintenance.

On deck, the cockpit easily seats eight on custom navy cushions. The steering and instrument console includes two large, folding table leaves.
The large swim-step with a sturdy swim-ladder makes it easy to get on and off the boat and features a shower with hot and cold pressure water.

Roller furling jib and stack-pack main make sailing a breeze. All lines are led aft and powered by an electric winch.

Anchoring is easy and safe with electric windlass and Manson Supreme on 200 feet of chain.
300 Watts in solar panels power the fridge to keep the wine chilled and the anchorage quiet.
Daily showers are no longer a luxury on board with the 20 gallon per hour watermaker.

Dealing with Condensation

Monk 36 master stateroomWhen we cruised Mexico aboard Camille we had very few issues with moisture and condensation. Baja is a desert and the windows were always open to keep the air flowing. Here in the Pacific Northwest we have the opposite: rain, cold, closed windows. A cushion resting against the hull will be damp in no time. The diesel heater is helping to dry things out on the hook. When we are at the dock we use space heaters pointed at enclosed spaces.

One of the biggest moisture collectors is the bottom of a mattress after sleeping on it for a night. On Camille we had a (rather expensive) Froli system under our mattress — mainly to try and give our thin mattress a little more bounce. On Limerick we have a great mattress but nothing to deal with the condensation. So we picked up some hypervent which came highly recommended by a great online group of women sailors I am part of. We cut it (quite easily with scissors) to also come up the edges of the mattress where it touches the outside hull.

It is working out fairly well. The bottom of the mattress is staying dry. Now the moisture has moved below the hypervent and seems to be drying as the day progresses. I had expected no condensation, but I guess that is a bit much to ask in this climate. We’ll be purchasing more hypervent for the V-berth.
