SYSTEMS-- EXTRA FUEL
AND WATER, FOR EXTRA PEACE OF MIND.
Cruising the open sea is one of life's great adventures. But as experienced
blue-water sailors know, the fun can easily be dampened by nasty surprises.
Such as violent weather. Uncooperative winds. Questionable water supplies
and fuel rip-offs at out of the way places.
Fortunately for the owner
of a Caliber LRC, such difficulties aren't so disheartening. That's because
we've designed our fuel and water tankage for long-range capacity and
dependability, to give you more freedom and control at sea.
The fuel tanks on the LRC
carry an astounding amount of fuel. This extends her motoring range many
hundreds of miles beyond other boat in her class. When becalmed, or when a
storm is threatening, the LRC series can motor vast distances to reach more
favorable conditions for sailing. As for water, the LRC also hauls large
quantities. Sufficient to supply two people well beyond a month at sea.
With extra large
capacities, the LRC won't constantly have to top off at foreign ports, where
the fuel and water prices may be
high, and the quality suspect.
As further assurance
against trouble, the LRC is equipped with dual tanks and filters for both
fuel and water. Should a problem arise in one tank, a simple flip of a lever
accesses the other. Dual Systems--a must for all serious offshore cruisers.
Believing--Caliber Easy-View™ Tank Inspection Plates.
There is no more reliable gauge of the condition and level of fuel or water
tanks than your eyes. With the LRC SEries of yachts, Caliber has
incorporated clear plexiglass viewing ports so you can do just that-- View
your tanks. Not only can you get an approximation of the level remaining,
but also you can look inside to make sure all is right. A factor that will
reassure you that you have a reliable source when you need it. When it comes
time to annually polish your tanks, there is no better way than through the
oversized inspection plate which is removable for this clean-out process.
