Stainless Improvements

Pictures taken by John Estes on Sea Breeze, Hull #142.

After seeing how Scott Brear designed handrails for his C380 and how Roger Frizzelle modified the handrails (and did a mock up using plastic pipe) for C470, Hull #1, John took the best of both of these designs, made the necessary changes and had Swensen Marine, Alameda, CA fabricate the stainless.

John thinks the handrails are a great asset when boarding the boat from the dock or dink.

Also the motor mount is closer to the center of the boat so that the outboard motor is lower for better visability. Also on the starboard handrail, he added a flag holder.
