"Child's Play" Equipment

The following provides a list of the equipment on our Chrysler 26. This list is by no means complete. Additional standard and optional equipment is listed below in the Sales Literature section. Readers may ask, "why do you list all that miscellaneous equipment?" Well, in the event that I sell the boat, much of the miscellaneous equipment listed here was purchased by me. Also, as any boat owner knows, new equipment is being purchased on a regular basis.
