Re: Tips for Living Aboard Catalina 27'
What version of the C27 do you have? (Standard, “Café” galley table, inboard, outboard) Knowing what you have will help us help you. Can you provide pictures? What were you thinking of doing – converting a settee or berth into cabinetry/shelving? As you know, Ikea is in Emeryville, so you most likely will want to start looking there. I have custom shelving in my boat and a couple of friends had custom cabinetry installed but those modifications are probably well outside your budget. Your boat only has less than a hundred square feet of usable “living” space which is a tenth of your old studio apartment. And, please try not to be harsh on me – although I’ve owned boats many years, my mother has assured me that she never dropped me on my head and standardized testing has indicated that I am above average in intelligence.
I am just thinking of building collapsible storage units, that also protect items from mold. I also, just need basic interior tips as far as the foam seating and the lights. I don't know what bulbs I need etc. Are you on the emeryville marina too?
