I think you have selected an interior carpentry style that is both attractive and completeable in a reasonable time frame. Looks great.
Re - Plumbing. I noticed that you used the red tracer hose. Did you consider using PEX? I am not to familiar with the stuff but it seems to be taking over the plumbing world by storm. Any thoughts?
The interior is BS-1088 Okoume plywood
that is epoxy
coated and will be varnished. The trim is all cherry, as are the drawer fronts. Everything else is semi-gloss epoxy paint
When she is complete, and the soft goods are in place, it should be a comfortable place to stay for extended periods of time.
She has reverse cycle heat and A/C and it runs only on shore power
or the gen set. Same for the water
heater and the combo washer-dryer.
Everything else is either D/C or runs off the inverter
. She will have a 900 amp hr house bank charged by either the engine
alternators thru a Balmar
Crossfielder II or with the 890 watts of solar panels
she will carry charging
thru a Victron MPPT
heater has a heat exchanger
off the starboard engine
, and 2 solar panels
of it's own to heat the water when the mains are shut down.
A 200 gal per day Spectra watermaker
will keep the tanks
, and we can store 5 -20 lb bottles in the propane
fridge is a combo D/C, A/C. propane unit.
Each guest stateroom has a Queen size berth, and the Master a King.
It should be a nice way to travel.
We have paid alot of attention to ventilation and with a nice breezy she should be very nice inside in all but the hottest weather
