1983 Watkins 36C

Spring Hill, Florida
Ideal Family cruiser, security and sea kindness are paramount in all Watkins designs.
Heavy solid fiberglass hull, designed for offshore use.
The soft decks, sole, repair of the sails, propane system to make the boat safe and compliant, repainting the hull bottom with anti-foul, and the overall condition affected my appraisal of the vessel.

This is a project boat that will need some TLC.

Description of Vessel:
White Hull with black bottom paint and green trim on hull and cockpit trim .It has Green canvas Bimini/dodger that was partially installed in the cockpit and the rest stored below in the saloon. This boat has ample storage throughout.
Sails and Rigging:
The vessel is a masthead sloop rigged sailboat with a Plastico 1011 roller furling system for the headsail. The spars (mast and boom) are of aluminum construction and in serviceable condition. The vessel has 4 Barlow winches. 2 #16 winches on the mast, and 2 #27 mounded just aft of the cockpit. All 4 winches seemed to be in serviceable condition. The port #27 winch needs service as it did not turn easily. The sails were not opened as the boat is on the hard, but from what I could inspect seemed in fair condition, but would need a sailmaker to re-stitch any of the delamination they may have. The mainsail had a sun cover as did the furled headsail. The clew of the headsail was delaminated and needs to be repaired. The standing rigging showed signs of rust bleeding through the strands. It is recommended to replace the standing rigging between 10 to 15 years. She is fitted with a South Atlantic S500 wind vane/self-steering system that was missing the upper vane, but is serviceable.
Engine and Mechanical:
The engine is a Perkins 4.108 that was not started for this appraisal. From the condition it seemed to be well kept and serviceable as was the transmission. The bilge had a sheen of oil and some water, but the level was below the automatic float switches trip. I did test the bilge pump by raising the float switch and also by moving the pumps toggle switch to ?manual?. I then left the toggle switch in the ?auto? position. The thru hull fittings and ball valves that were easily visible from the bilge and engine compartment all seemed to be in serviceable condition. The 39 gallon fuel tank is ABYC (H-33) compliant and installed in 2004. The steering gear appears serviceable and well maintained. The hull, rudder, keel, prop shaft, prop, seem to be in fair condition and serviceable.
Electrical:
The boat seems to have all the required navigational lights that are required to comply with USCG COLREGS Rule 25. It has 2 newer group 27 batteries connected to a Xantrex 20 amp battery charger. The charger was not operating, but was connected to shore power. A confirmation with a voltmeter confirmed the batteries were not charging as they had 12.65 volts. There was a newer VHF radio on the port side cabinet at the bottom of the companionway. Above the same cabinet was a newer EPIRB accessible from the cockpit via reaching through an open companionway. On the port side of the same cabinet is an older Garmin GPS/chart plotter. The companionway coaming housed the depth and wind instruments along with newer engine gauges all looked serviceable. The depth instrument face looked delaminated, but the readout was still clear.  
Optional Equipment Including:
The vessel is has a six gallon seaward water heater that appears serviceable and fairly new. The boat has a pressurized fresh water system that was not tested. The 40 gallon fresh water holding tank is located under the v-berth. The galley has a Hille Range 3 burner gimbaled oven/stove that looks serviceable. The propane hose was not one piece, but two pieces joined by plumbing fittings and hose clamps in the propane locker, also the hose and locker were not vapor protected and there was not a propane solenoid switch installed. These three deficiencies violate ABYC standard A-1. The two propane tanks in the locker are not serviceable due to the corrosion. The refrigeration was provided by a Adler/Barbour 52108 that cooled a large 2 door insulated chest.
Head:
The head is located on the port side alongside the engine compartment. It is accessed by an entry from the saloon, or by the masters quarters. The sole of the head is a shower basin and the shower head is above a hand pumped marine head. Aft the head it a sink basin with hot and cold tap.
Deck and Sole:
Aft locker lids (propane & sail locker) are cracked and soft to walk on. I witnessed soft decks on these areas: the starboard deck near the fuel fill fitting, Starboard cabin top next to the mast step, starboard deck next to the stanchion adjacent to the first forward port light, port stanchion adjacent to the first forward port light, cockpit seat behind the wheel, and the cabin sole at the bottom of the companion way. On the fiberglass surfaces I used a sounding hammer to backup and confirm my findings. The sole is of teak and holly and is in fair condition.
