Re: Interior

I like simple light woods but with some rounded corners. Sharp corners can be very painful to land on in heavy seas. They are also more prone to chipping with laminates. Rounded corners also look nicer, although more expensive to produce.

Re: Interior

Noticed that all the floor boards do not have the standard finger holes to open them up. You would have to have a few suction cups placed at the ready to open the floor boards. The Saloon has three large floor board storage area's that you would use a lot.

It makes the floors have clean smooth lines, but I like things that are simple and just work.

I would drill 3/16 holes in each floor board and install these Sea Dog Stainless Hatch Cover Pulls
Stamped 304 stainless steel hatch cover pull. Length: 1-15/16"; Top Diameter: 1-1/4"; Hole Size: 3/16".

Owners Side Sliding Door

Helia 44 Owners,

The owners side sliding door was blocking the cabinets and making the stairs and hall way to confined, so we removed it.

It takes away a few inches from the stairs and the hallway.

Just does not make sense for us with the way we use our boat.

We never close this sliding door except for when we needed to get to the cabinet behind it.

If we ever feel the need for a door in the future, I will install a Tambour Door (Roll Top Desk type of door) that takes no room and blocks nothing.

Stb. owners stateroom cabinet

Helia 44 Owners,

Had a hose leak in the Stb. owners stateroom cabinet.
When you open the back panel, it only exposes a small opening on the left side.
It did not give me enough room to get to the hoses on the right side.

Pulled out my tools and cut open the right side, so we can get at all the hoses and wiring.

No problem to get to anything in that area now.

Storage compartment

Helia 44 Owners,

If your looking for some extra storage space when crossing an ocean or going to the Caribbean then this may help you.

In the trash bin cabinet under the floor is a hidden storage compartment.
On the floor of the cabinet, measure in 5-1/4" inch from the door opening.
With a Multi-Tool, cut a 13" wide x 11.5" inch door.

The compartment inside is 22.5" wide x 14" x 12" tall.

Its the same smooth white gel-coated storage as the 3 other floor board compartments in the Saloon.

I will screw in 4 small blocks of wood in the corners of the opening, so that the door drops back into place. Will use the suction cup to open it when needed.

Just seemed to good of a space not to be able to use it.
-------------------------------------
Also when I was poking around the inside spaces I found a large LED light inside a cabinet that I did not known about. Its in the Owners version, Owners side all the way forward in what I call the Washing Machine closet. Once you open the door you reach to the top right for the LED light switch. Its well hidden, so most owners will never find it for quit some time.

I like your idea for the Tambour Door. Our owners version door slide jambed with about 4" of opening due to a screw coming loose in the slide. Had to climb out the hatch over the bed. Ceiling cover over the slide is glued on (like all of the upholstered panels). My wife values the privacy so will try a solution in a year or two.

Re: Interior

Beautiful interior!! If your plans are on the water full time, not the hard, consider upgrading to a Rick Page Bravo1 washer dryer unit. More efficient space-wise plus less moving parts to break out in that palm-fringed anchorage.

Saloon coffee table

Helia 44 Owners,

We modified the Saloon coffee table a bit.
1) Removed the wine bottle rack in the right side.
2) Re-hinged the right door, so it opens just like the left door.
3) Put corner guards on the square corners.

It's a great table and it works well for how we use our boat, but it needed some improvements.

Medicine Cabinets

Helia 44 Owners,

We wanted proper Medicine Cabinets in all 3 staterooms.

Started with the 1 in the owners forward head.

1) Taped around the edge of the mirror and cut with a multi-tool all the way around.
I was amazed that there was a nice white clean cabinet area already to go.

2) Installed the hinges and new mirrors. They still have a safety film on them in these pictures.

3) The area is 37 wide x 4.5 inch's deep. I will install another shelf half in the middle.

Medicine Cabinets

Helia 44 Owners,

Finished putting a proper Medicine Cabinet in the owners side.
Installed a shelf inside and magnet latches.

Will start re-doing the other 2 heads by cutting out the glued on mirror and make those medicine cabinets also.
