Imagine, if you can, without diagrams, being in the forward guest cabin of my boat, looking towards the stern.
You come into the 9 foot long salon, with the galley on the right and chairs on the left, plus various storage places.
Then you step into a 2.5 foot space for shower and loo.
Then you step into my cabin of 6.4 feet, in which is my electronic gear, clothes etc.
Then there is a back wall with a 4 foot by 2 foot vertical emergency hatch built in [usually left closed]. Access to the cockpit involves going up a ladder to the deck and walking along, dropping down again through a third hatch aft.
Now the boat’s longer, that cockpit [8 inches above the water] extends to the stern and it self-drains. It’s now an 11 foot long by 6 foot living space.
I also moved the galley out of the salon and the loo out of the 2 foot 6 inch wet area and put them on the extended cockpit floor near the stern.…
