AtomSolar_1

Twin solar panel mounts and Monitor windvane installation. The sturdy bimini frame can also serve as boom gallows and a secure handhold.

AtomSternRoller_1

I frequently use this transom roller to set a stern anchor. The custom outboard bracket on the opposite side provides 17 inches of vertical lift.

AtomBow_1

Bow cleats cannot be too large. This one's 10-inch. Lately I use a 33 lb Bruce primary anchor on 150-feet of 5/16 chain with nylon rode attached.

Atom's Legs being used on a 28 Taipan. Details are in the article, Giving Your Boat Some Legs.
