My first boat just purchased recently, I'm doing a complete refit
interior/exterior over the next year as she is tucked on her trailer in our back yard.
The boat is a full-keel double-end fiberglass
, 30' LOA
w/bowsprit; space is tight, and that's okay - I'll mainly be single-handing.
Her tankage is 10/10 water/fuel. I'd like to increase her capacity to 25/25.
I'd like to place the water
tank/bladder under the front v-berth, the rest of the v-berth is a storage
area, and I think I'll keep it that way.
For the fuel
tank/bladder, I'd like to build a custom shelf that allows for a horseshoe shapped bladder to wrap around the the stern/cockpit area underneath the combing.
locker doors on the seats, and the floor is removable to access the 1 Cyl 10HP Yanmar
Does anyone see a problem with this configuration?
Will this configuration cause hobby-horsing and/or balance issues?
Here is a link to the 32' version of the boat on Sailboat data, the configuration/lines are the same as the 28' version: http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=6225
I'm also attaching a photo
from the Laurin Koster site.
