I won't go into my boat requirements again, but I'm going to have to build a scow to get what I want.
I'm trying to draw it out so that a designer
or at least someone more knowledgable than I can get a set of plans so as to avoid deaths.
My statement of requirements needs to be made and I need to include the little amenities that will make my tub something I can live with a long time (probably my last boat....but who knows).
Gunkholing is the plan, self sufficient with some marina stays.
Waters will be primarily rivers and ICW
but may go off shore a few miles or head
to the Bahamas
for seasonal cruising.
Any ideas as to what you'd like to have if you were starting from scratch with a 30' scow with a 12' open bow, aft cabin
, less tha 8' beam, simple sail plan and primarily motored with a 25 hp or less out board, no diesel
What would you build in keeping the boat as inexpensive as possible to operate, keep clean, free of mildew/mold and be safe?
Should a shower
has an opening hatch
to dry out?
Should you have a vent fan near or over the galley
Computer fans used to keep air moving?
What heat would you go for?
Primarily looking along the lines of keeping good venting,keeping moisture out, plumbing
issues that you you go
