I am totally fitting out the forward cabin
This is going to be the main cabin
. There are two aft quarter berths that should be good in a seaway, however this should be the main sleeping area.
There is a 2/3 steel
bulkhead on the starboard side (Frame 6 station - aft end of cabin), a full steel
bulkhead on the frame 2 station (forward end), a hatch
right in the middle and opening opening portholes on both sides (no noticeable leaks
in fifteen days of recent heavy rain)
I am planning to store the spare anchor
between frames 2 and 3 and to put in an initial 200 litre water
tank between frames 3 and 4 , with space for another one between frames 4 and 5.
Transducers for both log and depth
are located on the hull
just forward of frame 6. I am planning additional storage
for long range fuel
cans on top.
An angled double bunk should run along the starboard side from frames 6 to 2. (2.4m - 8') with storage
lockers on both sides.
Weight is not an issue as the boat sits stern down at the moment.
I cannot get full headroom
Any suggestions, tips tricks or cautions?
What does make the perfect main cabin?
