Streaker20 is on a distinguished road
And another new owner of a '74 20' Streaker. One of the previous owners cut out the fore seats (from just behind the keel pivot forward) and made a cabin. Unfortunately, that didn't last long (rotted?) and now the boat has 1/2 the seating as original, at least from what I can tell from my forensic investigations. The mast was also shortened some to make use of a mast step in the interior of the cabin, but that's another problem. Luckily the keel seems to be not stuck.

I am contenplating putting the fore cockpit back to original, but can only find one clear photo of the interior on the web

If the others on the thead would reply with some photos (via email) of the fore cabin and cuddy design, that would be more than greatly appreciated.
