CAPRI 22′ SAILBOAT

Capri-22-Sailboat

Known for its sweet sailing performance in nearly all conditions, the Catalina Capri 22' has been winning sailors since its introduction. The Capri 22 is more comfortable, safer at sea and easier to maintain than any boat in its class. The striking deck profile is flared across the stern and has wider cockpit curves for crew comfort during and after sailing.

J-24′ SAILBOAT

SB Sailing

The J-24' is one of the most popular one design racers in the world. Also a great daysailer, the J-24' is very maneuverable and responsive. With a spacious and workable deck and small cabin down below this sailboat is a top pick for sail training. The J-24's are equipped with an auxiliary electric motor for easy launching and docking. It is a very stable boat and able to handle most conditions.

SOLING 26′ SAILBOAT

Soling-26-Uncle-Pete

The Soling 26' was designed as an Olympic class racer and is built for speed. Quick and responsive, the Soling handles well under most conditions and the simplified running rigging make it even easier to sail. Lacking only the creature comforts of a cruising yacht, the Soling more than makes up for it with the thrill of a "Go Fast" afternoon sail. Features include a main traveler, hiking straps and a tiller extension.

1. ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

The master battery switch is on the electrical panel, port side above the chart table. Use both batteries for engine starting and operation. Never switch the master while engine is on. Switch to one battery when the engine is off and when you leave the boat. Be sure all other switches except the bilge pump are off when you leave the boat.

To use cabin lights, switch on “Cabin Lights” panel switch. Turn off in the morning to prevent battery drain.

The two twelve-volt batteries are located beneath the port settee under the electrical panel.

SHOREPOWER CORD is to be taken with you. DO NOT leave it on the dock because you may not return to the same slip. DO NOT DROP OR GET THE SHOREPOWER CORD WET. If this happens, do not plug it in and advise the Sailing Center.

OUTLETS: The outlet’s breaker is on the electrical panel and must be turned on, shorepower cord connected and shore power switch turned-on on the electrical panel. If the outlets do not work, check the second circuit breaker switch in the port lazarette located just under the lid opposite the shore power receptacle.

Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) The AC outlets are equipped with GFI, which protects against electrocution. If the GFI system detects a condition that could indicate that a person is receiving an electrical shock, it shuts off the power extremely rapidly. The system is highly sensitive, and therefore can be triggered by the moisture present in the boat.

If an AC outlet has no power, verify that the AC control panel has power and that the OUTLET breaker is on. Then check for an AC outlet that has a triggered GFI (a small button that has popped out). The GFI may be on the dead outlet or on another outlet. (A GFI-equipped outlet can protect a string of outlets). Push the button back in and power is restored to all outlets in the string.

2. ENGINE OPERATION

Montecito is equipped with a 20 HP Yanmar two-cylinder diesel, freshwater cooled. Fuel consumption is approximately 1/2 gallon per hour. At the recommended cruising RPM of 3600, the vessel makes approximately six knots. The fuel capacity is 14 gallons and the range of about 140-160 miles (or 28 hours of motoring). There is a fuel gauge on the binnacle. The fuel tank is located at the stern and can be accessed through the starboard lazarette. Fuel shut off is located on top of the fuel tank.

ENGINE CHECKS:

Oil: Check daily. Access is located under the stairs. Undo the aft latch and lift the stairs. The aft engine cover must be removed when checking and filling oil or transmission fluid. The dipstick is located on the starboard side of the engine. The dip stick is marked with a silver loop. Pull firmly to lift the stick. Please minimize rubbing on the hoses near the dipstick. Remove it carefully, do not drop oil at the base of engine or on the floor.

ONLY ADD OIL IF BELOW THE FULL MARK ON THE DIPSTICK AND DO NOT OVERFILL. Overfilling causes engine damage. If you overfill, please notify the Sailing Center.

Oil Fill Access: The oil fill is located on the top center of the engine, access is gained by removing the aft engine cover.

DO NOT OVERFILL – ADD A SMALL AMOUNT OF OIL, WAIT A MINUTE AND CHECK THE DIP STICK AGAIN.

Coolant: Access for checking coolant level is inside the cabinet under the galley sink. Attached to the bulkhead is a plastic Recovery Tank. Levels of “Max” and “Fill” are clearly marked on the tank. If at “Fill” level, add distilled water. Please secure lid for coolant recovery tank.

Raw Water Intake/Strainer: This is located under the aft berth, under the boards of the forward cushion. Move the cushion and lift the center boards (the ones marked). Close the thru-hull. Carefully unscrew the plastic base of the strainer, remove the debris from the strainer; do not remove debris over the water so the strainer is not lost overboard; and GENTLY screw the strainer back on.
ONLY HAND TIGHTEN. TURNING TOO TIGHT WILL CRACK THE STRAINER. REMEMBER TO OPEN THE SEACOCK.

Wet Packing Gland: Montecito is equipped with a wet packing gland that contains one small nut and one large nut. The small nut sets the rate of the drip (this should be set at 20 drips/min), and the large nut locks the small nut into place. Excess will flow into reservoir under the engine and make its way to the bilge, do not be alarmed if there is a small amount of water under the engine, it is coming from the wet packing gland.

To start the engine:

  1. Make sure battery master is on ALL.
  2. Put gear lever on the starboard side of binnacle in neutral.
  3. Be sure engine kill lever pushed in.
  4. Turn key to position one pressure alarm should sound. This light will go out after starting.
  5. Turn key past position one and hold for approximately 10 seconds to engage glow plugs.
  6. Press black starter button on left of engine control panel. Do not crank for more than 10 seconds at a time. Alarm should stop when engine starts. If not, stop engine immediately using engine kill lever.
  7. After the engine has started, check to see that water is coming out of exhaust. (Underneath port stern). If not, stop engine.
  8. Make sure the steering lock is loose

To stop the engine:

  1. Reduce throttle, put in neutral, let idle for at least one minute to cool down.
  2. PULL ENGINE KILL. If at dock make sure boat is tied up securely.
  3. Turn off ignition key and put battery master switch on one battery. NEVER TURN OFF IGNITION KEY BEFORE KILLING ENGINE.

WHEN SAILING, LEAVE GEAR SHIFT IN NEUTRAL (NOT REVERSE OR FORWARD)

CAUTION

  • Do not press the starter for more than 10 seconds without pausing for a break.
  • Never close engine raw water intake except when cleaning the strainer.
  • Let the engine idle for a few minutes to warm-up after a cold start.
  • ENGINE OPERATING TEMPERATURE WILL BE BETWEEN 170-190 DEGREES AND SHOULD BE TURNED OFF IMMEDIATELY AT 200 DEGREES. There is a red light (with an audible alarm) to the left of the temperature gauge (on the engine instrument panel) to sound when engine is hot. If the engine overheats, check the coolant level and the raw water strainer. Make sure water is coming out of the exhaust, if not the impeller may need replacing. Make sure that ignition key is always ON when engine is ON.
  • THIS VESSEL BACKS TO PORT

3. SAILS AND RIGGING

The mainsail halyard is led to the cockpit through a rope clutch on the starboard side. The rope clutch is designed to be closed when raising the halyard and will hold the halyard secure once raised. Be sure to push the rope clutch all the way open to release the halyard. Raising Mainsail: Be sure the rope clutches are open for the 1st reef point, the mainsheet and boomvang are released and that you are pointed into the wind.

The mainsheet is led to the cockpit on the starboard side. It is secured in a jam cleat marked “Main Sheet”. The mainsheet and halyard share the same winch.

The jib roller furling line is secured on the port side of the cockpit. The jib can be furled and unfurled with this line. In light winds the jib sheet may be used to aid in unfurling. When sailing with the genoa/jib partially furled, be sure the roller furling line is secured on the cleat. Do not furl or unfurl the sail when head to wind. A broad reach is best, use the main sail to block the jib/genoa.

WHEN FURLING THE GENNY, PLEASE MONITOR TOP HALF OF ROLLER FURLING DRUM TO MAKE SURE FURLING LINE DOES NOT JAM OR BIND. NEVER PUT FURLING LINE ON WINCH – YOU WILL BREAK THE DRUM AND/OR THE LINE.

There are two winch handles above the port settee.

4. DOCK LINES AND FENDERS

Upon your return, please attach the longest dockline on the dockside stern.

While sailing, fenders may be firmly secured to the stern rail. Make sure they do not interfere with the stern anchor.

ALWAYS TAKE YOUR DOCKLINES AND FENDERS WITH YOU: NEVER LEAVE THEM ON THE DOCK.

5. SAFETY AND EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT

Montecito has seven PFD’s (lifejackets). They are located in the port lazarette. There is a throwable flotation cushion in the same locker.

Fire extinguishers are located in the port side cabinet in the main salon and in the cockpit port lazarette.

There is a man-overboard “Lifesling” mounted on the sternrail.

Orange toolbox, spare belt, and wood plugs are located in the aft cabin closet. PLEASE DO NOT MOVE THIS SAFETY EQUIPMENT.

The boat hook is in the galley, starboard side clipped in at eye level.

Emergency tiller is located in the port lazarette. To affix the emergency tiller first remove the wheel. PLACE THE WHEEL NUT AND KEYWAY INTO THE TOOL KIT FOR SAFE KEEPING. To access the rudder post remove the deck plate located aft of the binnacle on the cockpit floor. Remove deck plate by raising the lever in the plate, which releases the plate. PLACE THE DECK PLATE IN THE TOOL BOX FOR SAFE KEEPING. Affix the long pole on top of the rudder post and insert the tiller on top.

6. NAVIGATION EQUIPMENT

VHF radio can be turned on with the NAV/COM switch on the electrical panel. The Sailing Center monitors Channel 16 (the U.S. hailing frequency) and switches to Channel 66(US) for conversations. Please use boat name when calling.

Depth sounder and speed log are controlled by the same NAV/COM switch.

7. GROUND TACKLE

Bow anchor: 13 lb. Danforth anchor, 248 feet 5/8″ nylon Samson braid and 36 feet chain.

The bow anchor is ready to deploy. Caution and care must be used with the Danforth anchor on the bow.

Because of the size and weight, be careful not to ding or chip the hull or deck when raising and deploying. Be sure to check that anchor is well secured with securing line and can be easily untied. Please take special care to avoid scratching or chipping the boat with anchors and chain.

8. BILGE PUMPS

The electric bilge pump switch is bottom right on the electrical panel. Make sure breaker is ON, on the panel and leave switch on “Auto” at all times. If there is a bilge pump failure, use the manual bilge pump.

The manual bilge pump is located in the cockpit behind the port lazarette. The handle is located in the orange toolbox in the aft cabin closet.

9. HEAD (TOILET)

The head is plumbed for direct overboard discharge or holding tank.

DO NOT USE THE HEAD IN THE HARBOR.

To use the head:

  • Open the “Marine Head Inlet” located in the starboard settee
  • Check to make sure the head discharge is open. This thru-hull is located in the starboard settee.
  • The large black valve should be turned perpendicular to the hull.
  • The black Y-valve is located in the starboard settee as well.
  • The long arms of this valve determine the direction of flow.
  • The holding tank is located under the dinette cushion
  • PLEASE PUMP HOLDING TANKS AT LEAST 3 MILES FROM ANY COASTLINE
  • NO PAPER PRODUCTS ARE TO BE PUT IN THE TOILETS PLEASE USE THE WASTEPAPER BASKETS
  • The thru hull for the macerator is located under the port dinette cushion. Open that prior to turning on the macerator switch. Turn on the macerator switch on the electrical panel.

Troubleshooting: If salt water is not entering bowl while pumping it, you may need to prime the toilet with salt water or using the shower nozzle to put about 2 to 3 cups of water into the toilet.

SHOWER: The shower is located in the head. Pull the chrome sink faucet straight up. The lever on the shower head changes the flow from stream to shower. The shower drains straight into the bilge.

10. GALLEY

Only use ICE in the ice box.

The stove operates on propane. The propane tank is located in the port aft locker in the cockpit. First open the valve at the tank. Turn on the ‘LPG gas valve’ switch on the electrical panel prior to lighting the burners. After use, turn off LPG gas valve switch at electrical panel and then close tank to prevent leakage.

To light a burner use matches or lighter. Keeping knob depressed turn to IGN and light burner. Hold knob depressed for 10 seconds so burner will remain lit.

The thru-hull for the galley sink is underneath the galley sink.

11. FRESHWATER SYSTEM

Montecito has water capacity of 24 gallons. The tanks are located on the port side.

To activate the water pump, turn on switch on electrical panel. Leave this switch “off” when sailing and/or not using water.

12. MISCELLANEOUS EQUIPMENT

COCKPIT CUSHIONS: There are two navy cockpit cushions. Please return below to the salon on the cabin floor (do not place them on the salon or stateroom cushions). Please stand them on end with the zippers down on the deck in the main salon. Please do not put them on any cushion or mattress. If they are wet please leave in the cockpit.

COCKPIT SHOWER: is located near the stern swim platform. Water pressure must be on.

BBQ: is attached to the port cockpit rail. Please do not remove from rail. You must use propane only. Small Coleman propane cans are to be used and charterer must supply them.

Be sure all other switches except the bilge pump are off when you leave the boat.

To use cabin lights, switch on “Cabin Lights” panel switch. Turn off in the morning to prevent battery drain.

The two twelve-volt batteries are located beneath the port settee under the electrical panel.

SHOREPOWER CORD is to be taken with you. DO NOT leave it on the dock because you may not return to the same slip. DO NOT DROP OR GET THE SHOREPOWER CORD WET. If this happens, do not plug it in and advise the Sailing Center.  Make sure you unplug the shore side first to prevent exposing a charged cord over the water. When replacing it, run shore power along the boat.

OUTLETS: The outlet’s breaker is on the electrical panel and must be turned on, shore power cord connected and shore power switch turned-on on the electrical panel. If the outlets do not work, check the second circuit breaker switch in the port lazarette located just under the lid opposite the shore power receptacle.

Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) The AC outlets are equipped with GFI, which protects against electrocution. If the GFI system detects a condition that could indicate that a person is receiving an electrical shock, it shuts off the power extremely rapidly. The system is highly sensitive, and therefore can be triggered by the moisture present in the boat.

If an AC outlet has no power, verify that the AC control panel has power and that the OUTLET breaker is on. Then check for an AC outlet that has a triggered GFI (a small button that has popped out). The GFI may be on the dead outlet or on another outlet. (A GFI-equipped outlet can protect a string of outlets). Push the button back in and power is restored to all outlets in the string.

1. ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

No battery selector switch.

The master battery switch and electrical panel are located to starboard above the chart table.

House and starter batteries are permanently isolated: Only switch to off after stopping engine, even in a fire.

Never switch the master while engine is on. Be sure all other switches except the bilge pump are off when you leave the boat.

To use cabin lights, first switch on “cabin lights” panel switch. Turn off in the morning to prevent battery drain.

SHORE POWER CORD is to be taken with you. DO NOT leave it on the dock because you may not return to the same slip. The top of the boat end is marked for easy insertion into the boat’s connection. Do not drop or get the shore power cord wet. If this happens, do not plug it in and advise the Sailing Center Staff.

OUTLETS: The outlet’s push button on the AC control panel must be pushed in; shore power cord connected and 30 AMP Master power switch turned ON on the electrical panel. If the outlets do not work, check the second circuit breaker in the starboard lazarette located just under the lid.

REVERSE POLARITY: If red “reverse polarity” warning light comes on while played in to shore power please disconnect the shore power cable and call one of the managers.

Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI)

The AC outlets are controlled by one GFI above the main panel, which protects against electrocution. If the GFI system detects a condition that could indicate that a person is receiving an electrical shock, it shuts off the power extremely rapidly. The system is highly sensitive, and therefore can be triggered by the moisture present in the boat.

If an AC outlet has no power, verify that the AC control panel has power and that the

OUTLET breaker is on. Then check the GFI receptacle above the main panel (a small button that has popped out). The GFI may be on the dead outlet or on another outlet. (A

GFI-equipped outlet can protect a string of outlets). Push the button back in and power is restored to all outlets in the string.

Inverter/Charger

The Inverter/Charger will provide 120V AC power and charge the Start and House batteries. One mode of operation is when shore power 120V AC is plugged into the boat.  The other mode is when shore power 120V AC is disconnected from the boat.

  1. Shore power 120V AC is connected to the boat.
    1. Both the house battery and start battery are being charged.
    2. The shore power 120V AC is passed through to the outlets and the water heater.
  2. Shore power 120V AC is disconnected from the boat; inverter on.
    1. The house battery and start battery are isolated from each other.
    2. 120V AC is provided to outlets, but not the water heater. This is using power from the house battery only. Care should be taken while using the inverter when engine is off to avoid battery drain.

Operating the ME-RC50 controller

  1. The meter button will provide inverter/charger and battery status. It is the only useful menu button (bottom row). The others are for configuration and setup.
  2. When shore power 120V AC is connected to the boat, the CHG green light will turn on constant or blink if the batteries are fully charged. The batteries are being charged. Warning! Do not push and hold the Charger on/off button for 5 seconds! This could damage the batteries, as it puts them into equalization mode.
  3. The inverter is on when the INV green light is on. It will be flashing when no load is present, or constant when providing power or shore power is being passed through.
  4. Keep the inverter on at all times. Use the inverter on/off button to turn the inverter on/off if needed.

ME-RC50 controller System Status Messages

  1. When shore power 120V AC is plugged in, the system status will read Charging or Full Charge.
  2. When shore power 120V AC is not plugged in, the system status will read Off, Searching, or Inverting.
    1. If Off, turn on the inverter using the Inverter On/Off button.
    2. If Searching, the inverter is waiting for a load from the outlets to supply power to.
    3. If Inverting, then the inverter is providing 120V AC power to the outlets.

2. ENGINE OPERATION

Marina is equipped with a 35 HP Universal 4 cylinder diesel, fresh water cooled. Fuel consumption is approximately ½ gallon per hour. At the recommended cruising RPM of 2500, the vessel makes approximately six knots.

Many popular destinations are already programmed into the GPS. Take the time to review the book in the chart table.

VHF radio can be turned on with the VHF switch. The Sailing Center monitors Channel 16 (the International hailing frequency) and switches to Channel 66(US) for chatter. Please use boat name when calling. The Owner’s Manual for the VHF is in the Orientation Guide.

Depth sounder: The switch is also “Nav/Com” on the electrical panel. The Raytheon Owners Manual is in the Orientation Guide.

7. GROUND TACKLE

The switch for the windlass is located next to the battery switch above the starboard setee’.

Push the yellow switch up for “ON”. Press the red button to turn “OFF”.

ONLY OPERATE WITH ENGINE RUNNING.

DO NOT PUT CHAIN ON WINDLASS. IT IS NOT DESIGNED FOR THIS PURPOSE.

Bow anchor: 300 feet 5/8″ nylon Samson braid and 33 feet chain. Stern anchor: 300 feet 5/8″ nylon Samson braid 35 feet chain.

The anchors are ready to deploy. Caution and care must be used with the Bruce anchor on the bow. Because of the size and weight, be careful not to chip the hull or deck when raising and deploying. Be sure to check that anchors are well secured with securing line and can be easily untied. Please take special care to avoid scratching or chipping the boat with anchors and chain. You will be charged for gel coat damage.

8. BILGE PUMPS

The electric bilge pump switch is bottom right on the electrical panel. Make sure breaker is on on the panel and leave switch on “Auto” at all times. If there is a pump failure, be sure to inform the Sailing Center upon your return and use the manual bilge pump.

The manual bilge pump is located in the cockpit above the starboard lazarette. The handle is in the chart table.

9. HEAD (TOILET)

The head is plumbed for direct overboard discharge or holding tank. DO NOT USE THE HEAD IN THE HARBOR.

To use the head:

  • Open the “Marine Head Inlet” located under the sink. 
  • Check to make sure the head discharge is open. This thru -hull is located under the midships part of the starboard cushion in the dinette area.
  • The large black valve should be turned perpendicular to the hull.
  • The grey Y-valve is located on the base of the starboard dining settee.
  • The long arms of this valve determine the direction of flow.
  • The holding tank is located under the aft starboard dinette cushion
  • PLEASE PUMP HOLDING TANKS AT LEAST 3 MILES FROM ANY COASTLINE
  • NO PAPER PRODUCTS ARE TO BE PUT IN THE TOILETS. PLEASE USE THE WASTEPAPER BASKETS
  • Never pump head with seacocks closed: you may break a seal. The thru hull for the sink drain is located under the sink.

SHOWER: The shower is located in the head. Pull the black nozzle (wand) straight up. The lever on the shower head changes the flow from stream to shower. The shower sump pump (to drain shower water) has a switch on the main electrical panel (combined with water pressure) and an additional switch in the head. Don’t forget to open the exit thru hull before operating the pump. The thru hull is located under sink. The shower sump and refrigerator sump run off the same pump. There is a Y valve under the head sink to direct the pump from shower sump to refrigerator sump.

10. GALLEY

Please read posted directions on the electrical refrigeration. It is to be used ONLY when the engine is running.

The seacock for the fridge is same as shower seacock, the valve under the head sink will switch shower and fridge discharge.

The stove and oven operate on propane. The propane tank is located in the starboard aft locker in the cockpit. First open the valve at the tank. Turn on the ‘LPG solenoid’ switch on the electrical panel prior to lighting the burners or oven. After use, turn off LPG solenoid switch at electrical panel and then close tank to prevent leakage.

To light a burner use matches or lighter. Keeping knob depressed turn to IGN and light burner. Hold knob depressed for 10 seconds so burner will remain lit.

To light oven, turn temperature knob to ‘Pilot On’ while pushing the “Oven Safety” button. Light pilot light with a match or lighter and hold oven safety button for at least 10 seconds until thermo-couple is heated, which will enable pilot light to remain lit, then set to desired temperature.

The through hull for the galley sink is underneath the galley sink.

The dry storage compartment is ONLY for dry products. DO NOT try to make it a cooler – there is no drain in the bottom.

11. FRESHWATER SYSTEM

Heather Jean has water capacity of 49 gallons. The tanks are located aft (17.5 gal & hot water heater 6 gal.) and forward (26 gal).

To activate, turn on switch on electrical panel. Leave this switch “off” when sailing and/or not using the water pump.

The valves to turn from one tank to the other are marked and located under the aft cabin cushion son the port side of the cabin. Use only ONE tank at a time. Perpendicular with the valve is closed and with the line is open. When one tank is empty, turn off the valve to the empty tank and turn on the new tank. You may need to bleed the air out of the system to stop the pressure pump from running. Open the sink faucets and the air/water combination will “spit” out. When the “tone” of the pressure pump deepens, the system will pressurize.

Hot water is available after the engine is run for 30-45 minutes. It lasts for 3 – 4 hours after the engine is turned off. When plugged into dock, water can be heated by the water heater breaker in the AC panel.

12. INFLATABLE DINGHY

INFLATABLE DINGHY: A pump for the dinghy is in the port lazarette.

DO NOT TOW DINGHY the tow rings are not designed for the conditions of the Santa Barbara Channel.

PULL THE DINGHY UP ON DECK OR DEFLATE. Also, please keep it on deck at night.

13. MISCELLANEOUS EQUIPMENT

COCKPIT CUSHIONS: Please stand them on end with the zippers down on the deck in the main salon. Please do not put them on any cushion or mattress. If they are wet please leave in the cockpit.

COCKPIT SHOWER is located under the walk-thru seat in the stern of the boat. Pressure water must be on for it to function. Remove the walk thru seat.

BBQ is attached to the port stern rail. DO NOT REMOVE FROM STERN RAIL. You must use propane only. Small Coleman propane cans are to be used and charterer must supply them.

FLOPPER-STOPPERS are stowed in the port lazarette. Attach the line to the end of the boom so the top flopper- stopper will be just below the water. Gather together the stoppers and chain, ease the main sheet and pull/push the boom out over the side and gently release the stoppers and chain into the water. Secure the boom out by tying to a stanchion base. Be sure the topping lift is supporting the boom.

WINCH HANDLES (2) are in the chart table.

1. ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

Jenny Lane has 5 batteries. There are four 4D house batteries, two located under the large hatch directly below the ladder in the main salon, and one in each aft stateroom under the floorboards. The silver House Battery Switch is located under the first step, to the left of the first rung of the ladder. Never turn selector to OFF while engine is running. The starter battery is located in the smaller floor hatch just to port of the steps. The starter battery has an On/Off selector switch inside that compartment. This switch should remain in the “Off” position except when operating the engine.

Monitor your volt meter on the breaker panel for battery output levels. When the engine is off and there is no load on the batteries they should not read below 12 volts. If this happens, start the engine and charge the batteries at a high idle of about 2000 RPMs for 15 minutes.

The house batteries can start the engine, if you run the house batteries down to a point where they will not start the engine, follow the following procedure.

  1. Turn off the house battery switch
  2. Turn on the starter battery switch
  3. Turn key and listen for engine oil alarm then start with the black button at the helm instrument panel.
  4. Run at a high idle for 15 minutes
  5. Shut down the engine with the red button at the helm instrument panel. Wait for oil alarm, and then turn the key to off.
  6. Turn on the house battery switch
  7. Start the engine and run.

Altering the above procedure after house batteries have been run down could cause damage to the alternator.

The SHORE POWER CORD is to be taken with you, do not leave it on the dock. DO NOT drop the shore power cord in the water, or leave it in the rain, etc. If this happens, do not plug it in. Advise the Sailing Center Staff immediately. Make sure you unplug the shore side first to prevent exposing a charged cord over or in the water. When replacing it, run shore power along the boat closest to the dock box.

In the port aft cabin along the transom wall is the shore power main breaker. The small LED light indicator next to the switch should be bright green when shore power is connected and engaged. Make sure the charger breaker is on and the shore breaker on the control panel is switched from ship to shore and it is on. Also make sure that the Xantrex display charging light is on.

Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI)

The AC outlets are equipped with GFI, which protects against electrocution. If the GFI system detects a condition that could indicate that a person is receiving an electrical shock, it shuts off the power extremely rapidly. The system is highly sensitive, and therefore can be triggered by the moisture present in the boat.

If an AC outlet has no power, verify that the AC control panel has power and that the OUTLET breaker is on. Then check for an AC outlet that has a griggered GFI (a small button that has popped out). The GFI may be on the dead outlet or on another outlet. (A GFI-equipped outlet can protect a string of outlets). Push the button back in and power is restored to all outlets in the string.

2. ENGINE OPERATION

Jenny Lane is equipped with a 100 HP Yanmar diesel engine. The recommended cruising rpm is 2500.

Prior to starting, complete the following ENGINE CHECKS:

Coolant: there is a plastic reservoir container mounted under the hatch,forward of the engine. Use this reservoir to check or add coolant. Do not remove the coolant cap on the engine as this will drain the coolant out of the expansion tank into the bilge. The coolant in Jenny Lane is a dex-cool type coolant (RED). If coolant is added, be sure to add a dex-cool compatible coolant, failure to do so will incur a service fee. If you do not have coolant, use distilled water only.

Raw Water Engine Intake/Strainer: This is located in the floor hatch aft of the engine, on the portside. Before clearing the strainer, make sure to close the thru- hull located directly below the strainer. Once the basket is cleared and the cover is returned, be sure to open the thru hull and check for leaks. Never close engine saltwater intake seacock except when cleaning intake strainer with engine off. Normal engine operating temperature is 165º-195ºF. There is an alarm on the engine panel that will sound if the engine overheats. If the engine overheats, check the coolant level, raw water strainer, and the thru hull. If it is still overheating, the impeller may need to be replaced.

Oil: Check Daily. The Dipstick is located on the starboard side of the engine, ensure oil level is between the “add” and “full” marks. Add oil only if oil level is below the add line. SAE 15W-40 is recommended by the manufacturer. DO NOT OVERFILL.

To start the engine:

  1. Ensure house battery switch is ON and engine battery switch is ON.
  2. Ensure throttle rests in neutral.
  3. Turn key to on and the oil pressure alarm will sound. The alarm will reset after starting.
  4. Push the black Start button located on the engine panel at the binnacle.
  5. After engine has started ensure water is coming out of the exhaust.

 

To stop the engine:

  1. Ensure it is in neutral
  2. Push the red stop button on the engine panel at the binnacle
  3. Wait for the oil pressure alarm to sound.
  4. Turn off ignition key. NEVER TURN OFF IGNITION KEY BEFORE STOPPING ENGINE.

 

CAUTION

  • Do not press starter for more than 10 seconds without pausing.
  • Cranking for longer periods could cause engine damage.
  • While under sail, put the gear lever in NEUTRAL (NOT REVERSE OR FORWARD)
  • THIS VESSEL BACKS TO PORT
  • DO NOT LET GO OF THE WHEEL WHEN BACKING. IN ORDER TO BACK STRAIGHT GIVE YOURSELF 200 YARDS. SHE IS A BIG BOAT Jenny Lane has a 50-gallon fuel tank. This tank is good for approximately 40 hours of running.

3. SAILS AND RIGGING

The mainsail is rigged with in-mast roller furling. DO NOT open the main halyard (blue and white). When furling or unfurling the mainsail the boom must be as close to perpendicular with the mast as possible, an excessive angle will cause the sail to fold and bind inside the mast. To unfurl, open the Reef clutch on the starboard side and pull the Outhaul on the starboard side. Close the Reef clutch when the desired amount of sail is unfurled. To furl, open the Outhaul clutch and maintain a little tension on the Outhaul while pulling the Reef line. This tension is to keep the sail wrapped tightly and prevents binding. The mainsheet is led to the cockpit on the starboard side. It is secured in a jam cleat marked “Main Sheet.”

There are two extra halyards tied off to the mast pulpit, they come out of the port side of the mast.

The jib roller furling line is secured on the starboard side of the cockpit. The jib can be furled and unfurled with this line. To reef the Jib, take in on the furling line and secure it on the jib winch. Do not furl or unfurl the sail when head to wind. A close reach is best so the UV cloth is not destroyed on the shrouds.

There are two winch handles located in the center table in the cockpit. While under sail, put the gear lever in NEUTRAL (NOT REVERSE OR FORWARD).

4. DOCK LINES AND FENDERS

Upon your return, be sure the fenders and dock lines are set prior to docking.

FENDERS SHOULD NOT BE AFT OF GATES. Fenders should be set at the beam and hang as close to the waterline as possible without dragging in the water. Dock lines should be led outside of the pulpits and lifelines.

While sailing, fenders may be firmly secured to the stern rail. Always take your dock lines and fenders with you, never leave them on the dock.

5. SAFETY AND EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT

Jenny Lane has 12 PFD’s, they are located under the lower crew berth just aft of the bow anchor locker. Please keep them dry. There is a Type IV throwable flotation cushion in the same area.

There are 3 fire extinguishers on board, located in the galley, one in the stbd aft cabin and one in the main cabin.

Crew-Overboard “Lifesling” is mounted on the starboard stern rail.

A toolbox is located under the sink in the galley. Oil and fuel filters, spare oil, and impeller belts are located in the toolbox.

Emergency tiller is located in the forward crew berth in a red bag. To affix the emergency tiller first remove the wheel. PLACE THE WHEEL NUT AND KEYWAY INTO THE TOOL KIT FOR SAFE KEEPING.

To access the rudder post remove the deck plate located aft of the binnacle on the cockpit floor. Deck plate key is in the red bag. PLACE THE DECK PLATE IN THE TOOL BOX FOR SAFE KEEPING. Affix the long pole on top of the rudder post and insert the tiller on top.

6. NAVIGATION EQUIPMENT

GPS (Global Positioning System) must have both the instruments and auto pilot breakers turned on on the Breaker Panel. Directions for the GPS are in a red binder marked “Raymarine”. Take the time to review the binder and become familiar with the unit. Please do not fill the GPS with personal waypoints. A help sheet is available to simplify use. Do not clean screen with anything but a sunglasses shammy.

VHF radio can be turned on with the “VHF” switch on the breaker panel. The unit is in the main cabin. The Sailing Center monitors Channel 16 and switches to Channel 66 or 68 (US) for conversations. Please use call boat’s name when calling.

7. GROUND TACKLE AND WINDLASS

Note – A snubber must be used when anchoring with the bow anchor. After the anchor is set hook the snubber to the chain. This way the snubber will take shock load and not the anchor. The snubber is located in the anchor locker.

The switch for the windlass is located on the main breaker panel on the lower left hand side. It is activated when the small black arm is placed in the up position. It is disengaged by pushing the red reset button. ONLY OPERATE WINDLASS WITH ENGINE RUNNING.

Bow anchor has 300 feet of chain: The space between the bow roller and the drum of the roller furling is limited. Bring anchor up slowly. Secure the anchor locker open with the hook to give you easy access to the chain and anchor. Use the aluminum chain release bar to ease the clutch so the cathead will run free when the anchor is deployed.

Gently tighten the clutch to engage the cathead to raise the anchor. Be sure to check that anchors are well secured but can be easily untied. Care must be exercised when using the windlass. Do not let the windlass pull the boat forward, have a relay system with the captain.

Do not power the windlass once the anchor is stored. This will bend the safety pin and possibly move the roller assembly and jam the anchor in the stored position.

Stern anchor: 50 feet of chain and 300 feet 5/8″ triple braid nylon. Set the starboard anchor first (this will become your stern anchor). Once you set the anchor attach the bitter end of the anchor rode to the caribeaner and fender. Deplore the rode and this will become a mooring buoy. Now set the bow anchor. Deploy inflatable and retrieve your mooring. Grab a hold of the mooring and pull slack out of the stern anchor rode, making sure you go through the roller chock. Once slack is out, cleat off. It is the charterer’s responsibility to make sure the bitter end is attached.

Please take special care to avoid chipping the boat with anchors & chain.

8. BILGE PUMPS

The electrical bilge pump switches are located on the electrical panel. Bilge # 1 is to be left always ON – this is an automatic pump with a float switch. Bilge # 2 is to be left OFF unless in an emergency. If there is a pump failure, use the manual bilge pump in the cockpit – the handle is located in the orange tool box under the sink.

9. HEAD (TOILET)

All 5 heads have the choice of pumping into the holding tanks or directly overboard. Check the Y-valve and seacocks before using the head to prevent discharge into the harbor and possible damage to the marine sanitation device. Open the “Head Inlet” thru- hull before using the head. “Macerator”, “Direct Discharge” and “Sink Drain” thru-hulls should remain closed unless in use.

Never pump head with seacock closed: you will break a seal.

CREW BERTH HEAD: Y-valve is located in the cabinet above the sink. This head shares holding tank and macerator with the other Fwd heads. The thru hull for the macerator is located underneath the mattress in the port forward cabin. This should be open first prior to turning on the switch. The macerator switch is located in the port forward cabin at shin level at the base of the bunk. The sink drain thru-hull is under the sink in the cabinet. The direct overboard sea cock and water inlet for the head are located under the mattress in the starboard forward cabin.

STBD FWD HEAD: Y-valve is located behind an access panel in the closet, thru-hulls are located under the mattress. The thru hull for the macerator is located underneath the mattress in the port forward cabin. This should be open first prior to turning on the switch. The macerator switch is located in the port forward cabin at shin level at the base of the bunk. The sink drain thru-hull is under the sink. The direct overboard sea cock and water inlet for the head are located under the mattress in the starboard forward cabin.

PORT FWD HEAD: Y-valve is located behind an access panel in the closet, thru-hulls are located under the mattress in the port forward cabin. The thru hull for the macerator is located underneath the mattress in the port forward cabin. This should be open first prior to turning on the switch. The macerator switch is located in the port forward cabin at shin level at the base of the bunk. The sink drain thru-hull is under the sink.

PORT AFT HEAD: Y-valve, thru-hulls and head salt water inlets are located in the port aft cabin under the mattress. The thru hull for the macerator is located underneath the mattress in the port aft cabin. This should be open first prior to turning on the switch.

The macerator switch is located in the port forward cabin at shin level at the base of the bunk. The sink drain thru-hull is under the sink.

STBD AFT HEAD: Y-valve, thru hulls and head salt water inlets are located in the port aft cabin under the mattress. The thru hull for the macerator is located underneath the mattress in the starboard cabin. This should be open first prior to turning on the switch. The macerator switch is located in the port forward cabin at shin level at the base of the bunk. The sink drain thru-hull is under the sink.

PLEASE DISCHARGE ALL HOLDING TANKS AT LEAST 3 MILES OFFSHORE.

SHOWER: The faucets in each head pull out and double as shower heads. There is a shut off valve on the shower head to prevent wasting water.

SINK DRAINS: Thru hulls are located under the sinks. You may need to shut these off while under sail to prevent water from back siphoning.

SHOWER SUMP PUMP: The forward and aft power switches are located on the main Electrical Panel. There are 5 shower sumps which operate on an individual basis.

Switches are located in their respective bathrooms.

NO PAPER PRODUCTS ARE TO BE PUT IN THE TOILETS. PLEASE USE THE WASTEPAPER BASKETS.

10. GALLEY

Galley Refrigeration can only be used when the engine is running or while connected to dockside power. Use of refrigeration while on battery power will result in dead batteries. The refrigeration on Jenny Lane is raw water cooled and can be run on AC/shore power or DC/engine power. There is a switch for each on their respective sides of the electrical panel. It is important to only have one switch on at a time.

AC/shore power:

Check raw water strainer for the refrigeration system located under the hatch just forward of the ladder on the starboard side to make sure it is clear and the thru hull is open. Ensure refrigeration switch on the DC side is off. Turn on refrigeration switch on the AC side. Check to make sure water is flowing from the overboard, starboard side, just forward of the cockpit.

DC/engine power:

THE REFRIGERATOR SHOULD ONLY BE ON WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING.

Check engine raw water strainer located under the hatch just forward of the ladder on the port side to make sure it is clear and the through hull is open.

Ensure Refrigeration switch on the AC side is off. Turn on Refrigeration switch on the DC side.

Turn the timer knob in the galley next to the fridge, ensure red light comes on.

You will not see water coming out of the starboard side as if you were on AC/shore power. The engine water is cooling the refrigeration while on DC/engine power and exits at the stern where the engine raw water discharges.

TROUBLESHOOTING REFRIGERATION:

  1. Make sure that only one switch is turned on, on the electrical panel.
  2. Check to ensure thru hull is open, sea-strainer is clean and water is going overboard.
  3. If running on DC/engine power, ensure the timer has not tripped.
  4. The AC/shore power refrigeration unit is located under the bunk in the starboard aft cabin; there is a red button on it that will reset the unit if it trips out on high pressure.
  5. If water is not exiting the boat on AC/shore power shut down the breaker and bleed the raw water strainer to ensure no air pockets and then turn on the breaker and check the starboard side for water flowing.The ice box (fridge) drain pump switch is on the main electrical panel.

 

STOVE

The stove and oven operate on propane. The propane tank is located in the starboard aft locker in the cockpit. First open the valve at the tank. Turn on the ‘stove’ switch on the electrical panel, then the solenoid switch beneath the sink, prior to lighting the burners or oven. After use, turn off solenoid switch at sink and stove switch at electrical panel and then close tank to prevent leakage.

To light a burner use matches or lighter. Keeping knob depressed turn to IGN and light burner. Hold knob depressed for 10 seconds so burner will remain lit.

To light oven, turn temperature knob to ‘Pilot On’ while pushing the “Oven Safety” button. Light pilot light with a match or lighter and hold oven safety button for at least 10 seconds until thermo-couple is heated, which will enable pilot light to remain lit, then set to desired temperature.

The thru-hull for the galley sink is on starboard, accessible through a small cabinet door, just opposite the sink.

11. FRESHWATER SYSTEM

Jenny Lane has a total water capacity of 426 gallons.

To activate water pressure, turn on switch on electrical panel. There is an additional button located near the galley sink next to the propane solenoid button. This button has 3 settings “up” is for one pump, “middle” is off and “down” is the back up pump. It is recommended to leave this switch “off” when not using water. If both electrical pumps fail, there is a white manual hand pump to the left of the galley sink faucet.

There are 6 water tanks on Jenny Lane and 4 of the tanks (326 gallons) are left open since the valves are hard to reach. They all feed into the main pumps.

In each forward cabin there are small floor hatches where there are two 50 gallon water tanks that are left shut. These are gate valves, which provide a reserve supply of water.

Only use the water heater on the electrical panel while on AC/shore power. It takes 30- 45 minutes for the heater to heat up and will last 3-4 hours once it has been shut down. Do not run water heater while on battery power. The hot water heater holds 11 additional gallons of water.

12. INFLATABLE DINGHY

INFLATABLE DINGHY: An inflatable dinghy with oars and pump is available. Charters securing an inflated dinghy to the foredeck will be responsible for scratches or damage to the deck or forward hatch.

DO NOT TOW DINGHY – the tow rings are not designed for the conditions of the Santa Barbara Channel and you run the risk of losing the dinghy.

PULL THE DINGHY UP ON DECK OR DEFLATE. The oars, seat, and pump are stowed in the forward crew quarters.

13. MISCELLANEOUS EQUIPMENT

Legs to make table into bunk are located under the stereo behind the seat cushion.

COCKPIT CUSHIONS: Please stand them on end with the zippers down on the deck in the main salon. Please do not put them on any cushion or mattress. If they are wet please leave in the cockpit.

COCKPIT SHOWER is located on the stern swim platform. Water pressure must be on.

BBQ is attached to the port cockpit rail. Please do not remove from rail. You must use propane only. Small Coleman propane cans are to be used and charterer must supply them.

INSTRUMENT COVERS are easily stowed in the galley. Please return after use.

Located just 26 miles away from Santa Barbara lies the world famous Channel Islands National Park and Marine Sanctuary. This pristine piece of wilderness, also known as the Galapagos of the Pacific, is bursting with marine life such as whales, dolphins, sea lions and other life forms found nowhere else on earth. The National Park encompasses five diverse islands in all (Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, San Miguel and Santa Barbara) and is a place where visitors can experience coastal southern California as it once was.

Close to the California mainland, yet worlds apart, these islands possess not only biologic diversity, but incredible geologic wonders such as Painted Cave, one of the largest and deepest sea caves in the world. Our upper division ASA sailing courses offer overnight trips to the Channel Islands National Park for expert training.

For the experience of a lifetime, come and enjoy one of North America’s truly magnificent treasures. The Santa Barbara Channel makes for a challenging and beautiful area to sail and cruise. With the broad spectrum of conditions accessible within the Santa Barbara area, we are able to accommodate the sailor of all levels.
