Re: Finally finished the interior refit

OK, so here is how she looked before:
Note the hideous curtains which not only looked horrid, but they didn't open, the table blocking access to the v-berth and the distinct lack of storage. Oh and the plaid of course.


And here she is now!

V-berth, with new blackout hatch cover and hanging paper/manual/TP holder ($2 from the thrift store). Plus all new foam and upholstery.


Starboard berth, with new foam/upholstery, new curtains, full-length rail and hanging locker in the aft position




Starboard berth with hanging locker in forward position


We have 2 sets of the hanging lockers so plenty of storage now, plus all the manuals etc are hidden away in the rack thing up in the v-berth.
Looking forward with the table in the new athwartships position, much easier to get to the v-berth now, and the table is way more usable for things other than eating on. The sail is actually tucked out of the way under the table.


Few bits still to do to tidy up the cabin roof mostly, and we are making some throw cushions from the original plaid just to keep a bit of the original in there.
We're so pleased with how it all turned out, it's made a massive difference to her abilities as a compact cruiser, and everything simply removes over winter or when I want to strip her down to go fast.
