One of the drawings possibly shows one.

cheers
She will have a full head on the saloon level, we haven't done that layout yet, as we needed to get the layout of the hulls done first before we did the final hull design so we made sure we could get everything in her we desired.

We will now be making the hull designs final after we make a few changes in the engineroom area and move the aft cabin bulkhead just alittle more aft for more space in that compartment.

But thanks for the heads up.

Re: Construction Thread for Custom 45' Cruising Powercat

Silver Voyager will be getting underway next week headed to Florida.

She would already be there if Ginny hadn't had to have knee surgery, but she has mended, and Ginny, Al and the Silver Voyager will be getting underway to Florida for their first long cruise together.

Keep your eyes peeled for her.

Fueled up, checked over, and ready to head south

Today Forest and I met the " Silver Voyager" at the Morehead City Gulf Dock to give her a final going over and topping off her fuel tanks to full capacity.

She and the Springers, along with Beau, their dog, will be departing for all points south in the morning.

This is her first extended cruise, and they are planning to be underway for 3 months.

Bon Voyage Silver Voyager, and fair winds.

Re: Construction Thread for Custom 45' Cruising Powercat

Silver Voyager has returned home after her trip to Florida.

Ginnie had some issues with her knee replacement, so she and their dog drove home, while Al hung out in Vero Beach and a friend joined him to return the boat to North Carolina.

The trip was 1500 miles round trip, and her average speed was 10.5 knots for a total fuel burn of 636 gals or 2.4 miles per gal.

Not to bad for her first time out.

The trip down was all in the ICW due to Ginnie's knee, and the trip home was as well due to the nasty weather the last couple of weeks.

I can't wait to see her fuel burn and spped in open ocean vs the shallow depth of the ICW on an extended passage.

We must have the Flow Scans dialed in well, as what they said she burned is what it took to the gallon to fill her up.

Her first extended trip and I am happy to report I have no punchlist to attend to.
