There is a 15 HP Johnson outboard motor which I never used. My dingy was stolen last year.

The Raymarine electronics ( new in box but never installed or powered) includes an 8-inch color display, a radio, and believed Sirius music capability. All that is need is a radar transponder and a hull transponder for depth sounding, fish finding, and safe cruising in foggy conditions.

There are a total of 8 sails on the boat.
