Another day of shopping at West Marine and hitting the malls for the household goods that need to go aboard Zanshin, but I did start at the bow of the boat and opened up panels and floorboards in order to discover what went where.

Captain's cabin exposed Here I've take the forepeak or skipper's cabin apart for cleaning and so that I know what is in there. There is more storage space available in there than I originaly thought.

Bowthruster and windlass batteries 4 hefty batteries power the bowthruster, which needs all that power in order to move the bow of the boat to the left and the right despite the total boat weight and resistance from the keel.

Forward battery compartment 4 optima "Redtop" batteries supply the 24V current required to operate the large bowthruster. There is also a lot of storage space available in this forward compartment.
