All of the vessels equipment and systems were gone over and extensively upgraded in a 1997 refit. There is a custom made engine warning/alarm system with loud Aqualarm bells. The engine alarm bell circuits only activate once the starter is energized, minimizing unwanted noise on startup. A Lamp-Test switch also disables the bells, allowing silent startup. False alarm can be muted.
