KenD is on a distinguished road
Interior Replacement

I have 79 Seafarer 30 The Port settee pulls out to convert to a double bunk.The Problem is they are about 5 inches short,especialy where the Builder placed the Combo table and china cabinet.You can''t put your feet under there to sleep since there are only 3 inches or so between the cushions and the box. What I would like to do is cut the galley out and extent that settee/bed about 8 inches and make a nav table adjoining it. then convert the starboard side to an inline galley with useful storage and install reverse air thru that side. I Love the way the boat sails,Yes it''s a slug,but it is very comfortable in 3 to 5 foot seas. I will probably own it till I die so whoever is left holding the boat can give it away.I don''t think the weight of the project will amount to much difference from before the tearout,but I will be putting more holes in the boat,the majority of opinions on this site telling me to skip the one thru hull idea and of course loop the drains on the staboard side.This Boat has that useless Icebox nav tableon the starboard sidewhich now takes up a 7 sf space.Areal refrig will be put in it''s place. Comments welcome

Interior Replacement

KenD,

I gotta say my advice is to buy a boat with a longer bunk.

Good luck.

Tom
