Posted - 11/04/2022 : 10:15:40 Having spent a great deal of time, stem to stern, working on both my previous 1997WB and my current 2008WK, I thought it fun to list the "new features" or improvements, aside the obvious, that I've noted. I do fully realize that not every boat was built the same and many of these "features" overlap many years of production.
1. Dual bow chocks 2. Anchor locker opens opposite - hinged on the port side 3. Inboard shroud plates 4. Two additional opening portlights in the main cabin 5. Roller furling camlock in the cockpit 6. No combing cubbies (anyone have a suggestion for an add?) 7. Asymmetrical backstay 8. Stainless steel cleats 9. Self-tailing winches 10. Mast tabernacle has snatch block connects 11. Dual reef points 12. Welded masthead, not cast 13. D-shaped mast, not so oval 14. 2nd galley shelf 15. Propane tank gone from starboard cockpit locker (yeah!) 16. Self-contained stove 17. Much larger outboard motor well 18. Rudder offset forward a bit 19. Fuel compartment hinged toward bow 20. Main hatch has small plexi insert in lieu of entire plexi unit 21. Battery box in lazerette sit higher 22. Tension knob on helm wheel 23. Sink shutoff valves have been removed 24. No mast deck light, steaming light only 25. Factory topping lift 26. Ledger around galley surface is teak, instead of the molded, black aluminum 27. Teak ledger at the forward end of the rear bunk just behind ladder 28. Obvious conduit path to the mast base in the interior, starboard overhead
Other items to add?
