and good choice of location!!
Ours is docked in Oriental also, at the dock at the house.
The boat is new to me, so I cannot take much credit, other than being smart enough to buy her last spring in CT. She has a swing keel and draws 1'10" with the keel and rudder up, and 6' with the 4,000 lb lead keel down. Just what we need for the wind tides we get in the creeks in NC. We sailed her down this past fall.
Looking fwd thru the galley, the keel swings up into the partition to the right. It splits the sallon, but we hold are parties up in the cockpit anyway.
looking aft thru the galley, she came with the custom dinner ware along the partition, there are quarter berths on either side of the companionway. There is room for a full table between the partition and the steps, it folds down along the partition and slides out and up to fill in between the port and starboard satee's
She has a nice size V-berth, with shelf, drawer and wet locker storage
and a walk thru head on the other side of the partion.
Looking down thru the companionway you can see the keel parition with the galley on port and the nav station on starboard.
Proud and happy new owner of Heron. They only made 7 of these models back in the late 80's early 90's.
