Gee, that picture must be before 1999 as the windows where changed to bronze and the stern canvas more clear space. The picture was of the Eagle on the hard. I did not like that radar arch when we bought her, but over the years I have grown to like it. It leans forward which was to protect the old round radar dome, and to give more space on the roof as the previous owner cared store a live raft/boat up there. Its sort of like ugly wantabee forward slanting windows, you sort of get use to them. OK maybe not.


The 58 originally had a front mast, the mast step, wiring and stanchion connections are still there, so adding a from mast would not be to difficult but the cost is about 15 grand. 15 grand can buy about 4,000 gallons of fuel. The only reason I would add is to increase the range.
