You are doing good. I bought a 1963 Glaspar G3 project boat back in, I think '86? By '87 I had it gutted. In '97 I got a wild hair and cut out the floor. But it's getting time for me do the next step. I figure if I don't do something on it at least once a decade, it'll never get done.

So never give up. I figure at the current rate, my grandchildren will be able to take it out about the time they retire.

From a Bare Hull by Freceric Mate gives all the relevant dimensions you will need, settee hieghts and widths, counter top heights etc. A good book

My 2 cents - the bible for architectural data - this book will give you everything from how much a human needs on average for passage, heights for seating, reaches.. the lot.

Amazon.com: Architects' Data (3rd Edition): Ernst Neufert, Peter Neufert, Bousmaha Baiche, Nicholas Walliman: Books

Hello, James;

Nothing really to show yet. As these things often go (particularly in Trinidad), I've had some, eh, "delays". Lost an entire year dorking around with keel bolts...which held up the engine re-install...which held up the engine room walls...which held up the galley and nav finish carpentry...which held up the electrical... You get the picture. So, as of December the keel was back on, and in January we were about to go great guns...but hold on, suddenly now I'm getting divorced, and don't dare spend a dime until I'm out of these weeds. Sigh, I wonder what the data is correlating sailboat restoration and divorce...

Anyhoo, design-wise I really couldn't do anything more creative than what was there before, i.e., a linear galley. Not without devoting a third to a half of the saloon to it, which I thought long and hard about, but decided I really loved the spacious feel to the current saloon. When we get back to work (and we will) I'll post new shots.

Sorry to hear of your divorce and other challenges.
I think the data "boat restoration/divorce" would be interesting.

I think that’s why the general advice is to estimate the cost of the work then double it....not because the work is going to cost more....but because of the cost of the divorce!

Good luck

There is a book "Fitting Out Below Decks" written by Alan Lucas. Published in Australia but probably out of print. Should be around second hand. Good basic design for cruising from someone who has been cruising for decades. Regards, Richard.
