I guess it depends where the boat is sailed. I was I instinctively evaluating the boat against the weather conditions in the west of Ireland, where there are few rain-free days, and the drying of damp clothing is a constant priority on land or sea.It's a raised salon boat with inside steering. How wet do you think the crew will be? There is always the hanging locker in the starboard quarter sleeping hole. ( I will no longer call them ":staterooms".)
I actually use my navstation for navigation (as well as all the other tasks mentioned), but when the conditions are a little rough (or a lot rough) there's no way I could do my job standing up. Having a seat that keeps me secured is a big deal.Personally, I prefer to stand to the nav table rather than sit at the nav station, perhaps this stems from my professional chart table experience/practice.
Cherry. Specifically, Don Cherry. Very rare wood.Galley surfaces (#21) are simply excellent. I do not know if you get into this level of ultra detail but can you tell us what finish was used on those surfaces?

Edit: Oh, the finish. Unobtainium extract and mineral oil.
Paps: I'm fine. Working hard and doing all the things I normally do. Looking forward to more racing on FRANCIS LEE this spring. I am enjoying my grandchildren. Never had a little girl before so that's been different. Violet is the apple of my eye.
By Jove, I think I've got it! I've got it for now anyway. I'm trying to creat the look of "furniture" in the salon. PSC is very good at furniture detailing so no point in not taking advantage of that.
I'll let this sit and rest for a while and see if any new ideas pop up. If you have any ideas I'm all ears. I doesn't take me long to try out new things on acad,
But now I must go inflate by balls, run a few downs with my dog and get ready for the Seahawks and the Super Bowl.
i just think that dealing with the dinghy is such a hassle, that if i were designing a big custom boat.., some kind of system - better than davits - would be built in
It's hard to imagine anything better than the dinghy system on DDW's Anomaly:i just think that dealing with the dinghy is such a hassle, that if i were designing a big custom boat.., some kind of system - better than davits - would be built in
you really don't want the weight that high.., and i hate looking at the thing back there while sailing..., and then you have the question of whether to leave it there for any kind of offshore sailing.., and if it's not there, where is it?.., and the hassle of getting it there.., and taking off the outboard..,and a dinghy on a 65ft boat is going to be a big dinghy...
on a 40fter you don't have many options.., but at 65ft, you start having options
