Alpha uses the Aqua Signal portable LED nav lights. Her aft light tanked so I replaced it with this new style Aqua Signal LED.

I had not 1, but 2, varnished teak flag poles in Andromeda's inventory so I put one into service by adding this aluminum flag pole holder. $10 from Amazon. I replaced the cheap fasteners with stainless steel.

Fine dining includes fresh Langosta purchased live right off the fisherman's panga at the co-op, stored in a net bag off Andromeda's transom then steamed in her electronic pressure cooker.

Head Sink drain kits

After much effort I finally located and ordered 2 drain kits to replace Andromeda's two OEM head sink drain kits. The originals had simply lost all of the chrome plating and were ugly.
The replacements I chose have an integral "flip" drain stopper, a real upgrade from the archaic rubber stopper design. The specs match and installation was easy and straightforward.
