SPECIAL SHALLOW STAINLESS STEEL KEEL
At Finnish archipelago depth has great deal to do. Our client wished from Maestro Design Team an solution where depth could be lowered without reducing sailing capabilities. Solution was to design totally new 2,05 m keel with new construction method (standard is cast iron).
Maestro Design Team designed a keel blade that is made from Stainless Steel by welding. When blade is now totally empty, it was possible to add an extra 500 kg to bulb. By these changes VPP calculations show almost same results as with 2,20 m draft keel. Extra advantage is that by welding and gnaw machine work blade can be made with much more precisely that by casting.
SOLAR PANEL IS WORTH TO INVEST
To s/y Orchidea is installed 52W solar panel with advanced regulator. This combination gives at normal sunny day enough power to run navigation instruments, fridge and some other small consuming devices without using power from batteries.
Solar panel is installed middle of cabin roof front of sprayhood. Solar panel is totally waterproof, maintenance free. Best thing is that you can walk freely above panel.
