That's nice Capn' ! A friend had a 41 .... Sweet setup... The OI ain't too bad... Once you've climbed in the lazerette ! The W is cramped as Eff, but has an actual door....

No...... Just the berth. I can lay down to work on the port side. I built it so the two side panels slide out and I have full access to the whole motor compartment, which I have to go thru to get in the transom.

Thanks, but you lost me with the "W" & "Eff" with a door?

Delmarrey, 'not only great access, but pretty too! You have a gem!

My 32' Samson has a small seat above the engine/shaft but you have to be a monkey to get to it and sit. Once seated though, you can reach everything you need to.

As to your user name, tell me the name of your vessel is "42"...

Oh, gotcha! My OI 41 is a 1973 made before the "walk through", so I don't have the hallway to interfere with center-cockpit engine room space. 'gives me a door from aft and a door from forward with "duck-walk" space throughout. Not as good as your "W" space, but suitable.

I prefer the advantages of the "non-hallway" OI... My buddy had one, and I thought his was awesome...

Re: Leaky Drive Shaft

'continuing this thread drift; I have this photo with a surprising similarity to one of yours!


Well, the angle of the boat on the hard is the same, though you can't see it all......same color. Ah, well....'back to the stuffing box questions!
