Hi folks! I just recently joined and as I mentioned in my 1st post, I am in the process of restoring an old MacGregor 22'
. It appears the previous owners gutted the interior
and left an extremely slanted bunk and one uncomfortable bench seat.
I'm still in the tear down phase, ripping out all the rotten, untreated plywood
. Before I make plans for the new interior
, I'd like to know what you consider a must have for a small coastal cruiser that will most likely never be used for more than one night of sleeping before returning to harbor. My lovely wife is one of those gifted with a tiny bladder so I'm pretty sure I'll have to do something in the way of a porta-potty.
We plan to use it for a trainer to get us started and then once we feel more comfortable with our own skills look for a larger boat to use for slightly longer trips.
Any advice would be most welcome.
