Over past five years Exit’s past and present owner have consistently upgraded and improved the boat to insure she was ready for new horizons and adventures.  Gene Carlson her previous owner and the man that first brought Exit to LM patiently and methodically made improvements from year to year.  In 2010 the work was simply replacing a centerboard pin.  During the winter of 2011-12 the worklist turned to the mechanical front.  The engine was removed and rebuilt and a new generator was installed.  2012-13 the shaft and cutlass bearing were replaced and the propeller shipped back to PYI for service and tuning.  As well as lifelines being replaced and a gates installed both on both sides. During the winter of 2013-14 the work focused on preparations for Gene’s cruise to Newfoundland .  Work included new ground tackle,  new LED navigation lights and replacing the interior lights with LED bulbs, install an AIS and pour over the details in the rig, steering and mechanical systems to assure all would go well on the expedition to the north east.  Gene’s blog is here -https://svexit.wordpress.com

After Gene fulfilled his goal of cruising Newfoundland, Exit passed on to his nephew’s family Drew & Linda Williams. They and their two children are going to spend the summer and winter cruising the east coast and the Bahamas, then who knows???  With a change of hands there was a great deal of work done for the Williams to put their mark on the boat.  The topsides were stripped back to expose the bare aluminum topsides, with new graphics.   Freshwater tanks inspected, cleaned and recoated.  Isolation transformer installed. On deck all the hardware was removed/rebedded and new Treadmaster was installed, fresh paint on the house and the cockpit, new canvas for the dodger, bimini, sail cover, new mainsail.  You can follow their adventure at   http://www.svexit.com/
