Hi, I have a Parker Dawson 26 that is ketch
rigged. It seems to be a good solid boat and it sails
well. I am thinking about taking the liner out and replacing it with bulkheads and built in furniture. (I really hate the liner as it is just tooo much like being inside the proverbial Clorox bottle). Does anyone have a thought on this project
. I am pretty good with epoxy
and have done some structural work with bulkheads on other sailboats so don't think that is a problem but thought I would ask to see how crazy this sounds to someone else. I have not decided whether to take the entire deck
off or just cut it out from the inside but either is possible.
I have one other issue. I really don't like the wheel steering
and this is a center console boat. Anyone have a thought on converting this to something a little simpler that would not take up the whole cockpit
. I have thought about this a lot and have not come up with anything simple that seemed like it would work.
