         Walk Through
Stepping aboard "Pro Se" for the first time,  one is met with a clean and orderly craft that is ready to go to sea. The owner is experienced and it is obvious that he knows what he needs to succeed in a seagoing endeavor.
The owner has two sailing vessels and both are kept ready.
Moving around the main deck there are no soft spots and the rigging appears to be in very good condition. The ground tackle is easy to operate and is equipped with a CQR anchor and Danforth spare. The two forward triangles are roller furling as are the main and mizzen sails. A new and full canvas enclosure surrounds the center cockpit.  Substantial dinghy davits are mounted on the stern along with an outboard motor davit which can be used to hoist a person aboard as well. A life raft is located atop the aft cabin and solar panels are atop the davit arms.
Inside the cockpit newly refinished teak abounds and it is quite attractive and out of the weather.  The vessel is very well equipped with all the necessary navigation equipment. The Isinglass is clear looking out and everything is neat and orderly. The aft cabin can be accessed from the cockpit or through a passage below decks that connects to the Salon.
Down the companionway the galley is located immediately to port and the navigation station is to starboard. There are no strange odors here,  but rather smells very clean and pleasant.  Here also is an "L" shaped settee to port and a bench settee to starboard,  lushly covered in what appears to be a leather material.  The Salon table folds up and out of the way,  affording plenty of room to move around in a seaway without stumbling over a table.
Moving on to the forward stateroom,  I could actually see spending the night here. Plenty of room for two with reading lights and good ventilation.  
The forward head is just a step away and to port. One can shower here and it is quite roomy.  Again clean with no strange odors.  A manual flush toilet resides here which is much less likely to fail than the electric counterpart.  Less noisy too!
Headed aft and to the navigation table,  one notices that all the necessary navigational instruments are repeated here just like in the cockpit.  Immediately behind the nav station is a counter with the electrical panel.
Directly across from this is an actual engine room. Not
