The boat comes with the following:

modified DeGraff trailer
4x solar panels
GPS chart plotter
VHF radio and antenna
AIS & antenna
GPS antenna
deck repeater
deck battery monitor

2x110 Ah marine batteries used only for the race (I think Talisker race regs say you'll need to replace these anyway but they'll have trade in value)

White Nav light
McMurdo EPIRB & holder on deck
Deck compass
2x life jackets with splash hood & rearming kits
1x Solas survival suit (as per the race rules)
Flagpole and the British ensign
ST2000+ Autotiller (currently fitted on deck)


2x Rudders: One is heavier and more robust (cost us 2,000), the second is a light (the original) carbon fibre rudder

8x Sawyer Oars
1x removable Center board
2x knives
1x Whale gusher pump
1x pump for cabin
2x screw vents (1 for each cabin)
Man over board throw/ rescue line
2 original seats and seat padding, 2 spare seats
Main cabin custom padding

Carbon fibre foot plates (one with foot steering) and 1 spare steel footplate

SOLAS 4 man life raft

Spares kit (hatches, oar locks, oar pins, seat wheels, hatches, anti-fowl paint etc)

So there is still quite a bit of kit with her to get a team going in a race. Off the top of my head, the main things you'd need to add to that kit to get going would be - para-anchor, drogue, tow line, para-anchor line, retrieval line, water maker, anchor & chain, med kit, grab bag kit, food, toolkit and all-weather gear!

There is a 2 part makeshift tarp as well that will cover most of the boat for some outdoor protection, although I'd just get a boat cover made (we didn't have time). I can also supply a diagram of how the electrics are wired up. I think I still have a HUGE bag of energy bars we could throw in as well.

The boat is currently stored and in the capable hands of Ocean rowing legend Leven Brown up in Scotland.
