Any chance for a YouTube overview of your boat
? "Pantry" and toy storage
options maybe? Did you option a generator
? How much storage is left in the forward hatches under the forward cockpit
seating? Is there a place to put away the forward cockpit cushions
(for seating and the sunbed) without stacking them in the salon
or a cabin
and without giving up storage for toys?
Is there anywhere big enough to store a pair of folding bikes?
Did you get a watermaker
? Where is it (or would be) installed? Does it have a remote control panel
or to you have to get at a hatch
Would it destroy the comfort of the starboard lounging seat in the salon
if you lost
4" of width to install a pop-up television behind it?
How much storage is under the new rear-cockpit seating just in front of the dinghy lift
? Does the floor of the storage compartment (assuming there is any) extend down to the salon sole level, or does it extend down to the depth
of the... sorry, having trouble coming up with the terminology... the bottom of the bridge deck
? (Making it what, a good 12" or more deeper, appropriate for storing tall items.)
Did you get the full coverage canvas bimini
up top? The one I saw in a video for a Is it available in fiberglass
? I've seen a canvas
bimini on a Bali 4.0 in Kavas Yacht Charter on YouTube
which looks to have a sort of ladder built into the aft supports, but I assume you're not actually supposed to walk on the canvas to access the mainsail
stack? That can't be the intent right? A large hardtop bimini would really interest me for unobstructed solar
and access to the stack. How do you find stuffing the mainsail
and zipping up the bag? It looks effectively out of reach for anyone under 6' to me?
Apologies for pelting you with questions. You're the first person I've seen "in the wild" with the 4.1, and it's a boat I'm very excited about (if you couldn't tell)!
Finally, if you have any thoughts on the 4.0 I'd love to hear them as well. It appears the 2018 Bali's have upgraded the interior
finishes significantly, but I'm mostly concerned about how big a compromise having the folding transom instead of the new seating area would be if I managed to find a used 4.0 with the L-shaped dining seating (which appears to be a switch or option made available at some point, maybe 2017, but I haven't been able to identify when it happened other than the introductory boats all had the straight sofa apparently).
