Many thanks for the encouraging words. But now I'm going to show you some less attractive angles and point out some elements that will make the OP's boat a bit more enticing....
When I first bought this project
it was an open bridgedeck design. The original owner had netting forward of the mast
and a trampoline aft. I could tell right away the hull
form would easily support more weight and decided to attempt a major alteration. After I made the purchase
I was warned not to attempt a full bridgedeck modification (i.e. bond the hulls together). I posted questions about how to add a hard deck
on several forums
and, invariably, the answer was let us all know when you figure it out! Ultimately I did figure it out and suspended the whole thing from the massive crossbeams (pictures 1 & 2).
The distance between the two inner crossbeams was 10' and so I came up with the idea a central pod 8' long would work; thankfully, this meant no scarfing. Dimensions within the pod were laid out to fit a full sized berth forward (athwartship), a small galley
and nav station aft. The end result was fairly adequate and allowed for easy passage
forward between the cockpit
(next 2 pics).
Now here's the rub: while the central pod improves the boat immensely, it is a small space. The near 360 degree view from within is very nice during the day, but at night it feels far more cramped until one gets used to it. Looking at the OP's boat, I think we can imagine much more spatial continuity below decks. While the OP's boat may look a bit clunky, the continuity of space makes it a far more comfortable boat for extended times aboard. Functionally, that is very attractive.
I'll end this with one more picture and show you a mugly side. I might as well also say the additions raised the waterline just over half an inch. As for fit and finish, by the time I got this far I had really lost
patience; the 50' rule
certainly applies (if you want to see beauty and are closer than that, don't look)!
