Comfort issues - hanging storage

I promised to be back soon with new questions and so I'm

We ares still discussing the storage distribution in the cabins.

We are thinking along the line of alloting to the owner's cabin two hanging lockers 1,05 meter (3 ft 4 inch) wide each, and one such hanging locker to each other (guest) cabin.

Do You think such a hanging locker space will be adequate for a big, comfortable boat (assuming other storage space shall be O.K.) ?

Best regards

Tomasz

IMHO and experience based on a much smaller hanging locker. Anything left hanging will chafe through from the constant motion. I put shelves in our hanging locker.

Re: Comfort issues - hanging storage

Our smaller than your sailboat has two hanging lockers. Both are chock-a-block. No chafing. One is in the owner's cabin, the other near the companionway. It has all our cold weather and wet weather gear, and an old fashioned shoe bag hanging in it, so most of the shoes are stored vertically. So yes, I think two meters worth for the owner's cabin should be adequate. Guests have to take their chances.

Re: Comfort issues - hanging storage

Some coats, dresses, formal wear, suits require being hung up. We have full length coats, formal long dresses and suits As mentioned before we converted the 4th smallest stateroom to a walking in hanging closet. The each stateroom has a hanging closets about 4 ft tall, but no quite tall enough. My wife bought the Eagle as each stateroom has a 3 to 4 foot long hanging closet and plenty of drawer space as she knew I was a cloths and shoe hog.

Sorry Ann, I didn't catch it... Was it chock-a-block?
My English is not good enough, apparently...

Chock-a-block = full to the rim, not a bit of extra space left

A good seafaring term. Meaning all the sheaves in a block are full up
