Re: What is the size of your boat?
My boat looks alot bigger than 30' on the outside (probably has something to do with the proportions), but inside is pretty tight. Beam is 8'9" the sides take up 6" of that (1"planking w/2x3" frames and 1/4 cieling )which including cabinets gives the widest width in main cabin of 6'. From cabin to stern is 10' from companionway hatch to mast is 8' and ahead of the mast it gets too tight to be considered anything but storage, headroom under companionway is 6'2" under midship hatch is 6'4" and under cabin top in main cabin 5'7" (William Atkin felt that "you don't need to stand up everywhere).
