That's a kick ass boat for conversion as long as you don't go crazy with your expectations. For me, I'd do a Downeast kind of pilothouse with a galley
up and a bunk room and head
down in the forepeak. A bow thruster is a must with that hull if you want to stay sane.
Aft of the pilothouse I'd have a small salon
and then the cockpit
. I'd extend the pilothouse roof aft over half the remaining length and have canvas
to enclose it as well.
station just aft of the pilothouse on the stb rail like a Chesapeake Deadrise.
If I was going to use it for fishing
, I'd skip the swim platform, but for diving
you'd want a big one.
With good carpentry and glass skills, you could do it fairly reasonably. It wouldn't be cheap (unless you made it out of plywood
and who wants to do that) but it'd be a fun project and you'd have a great boat afterwards.
