Re: Passport 40

Nice site and great mods! Our 88 Passport 41' is the birth forward interior. Dont you just love that rich interior of the pre-Royal Passport designs? Its hard to find the quality of interior finish found on the 80s models. Again, nice work.

Re: Passport 40

Great link! That 40 is almost a duplicate of my P47, same layout etc. I was looking for a 40 like that but ended up with the 47. Hard to beat any interior done by the early Passport yard...Ta Shing I think.... I think it was the 41's that started with a new yard... I too loved the forepeak head arrangement. and my 47 had the hidden aft head also.

Re: Passport 40

I read your blog. Good job on the deck work and the many other projects too. I like the hard fodder especially, and the Pullman berth extension is one I will remember.

In a word....WOW!! You are really good! I have a 1990 hunter legend 37.5 but I can certainly appreciate the love and craftsmanship you put into your boat. Amazing!

Re: Passport 40

Wow, lots of great solutions to common problems and better than professional level workmanship evident everywhere. Beautiful boat!

I especially liked that dodger you created. I can't even imagine undertaking that and then to have it come out so nice looking! I need to replace my dodger and would love to have one a lot like yours, but don't even know where to begin.
