Creekmore 36 "Georgia"

Interesting to learn about the variations in the design features of the Creekmore 36 hulls, as well as the modifications that owners made after buying their boats.

In order to create a larger main cabin, the cockpit was made smaller and the main cabin extended aft a couple of feet. The cabin house was raised, as well in this aft section. This was done by the Lee Creekmore at the time the boat was built.

I wonder if the mast step had to be moved aft when cutter or yawl rigs were used rather than a sloop rig?

There are storage places on the boat that are difficult to get to. For example, up forward there is storage space under the stateroom bunks between the anchor locker and the storage spaces on either side of the aft end of the forward stateroom bunks. To get at this space, you have to move the mattresses back into the main cabin and then lift a triangular 3 ft hatch board out of the way. There is no ventilation. The bottom of the area is shaped by the deep "V" of the bow. Do you use this space for anything?

Best regards,

Scoopy
