That said I agree wholeheartedly with wanting to get away from a v-berth. I am finding that as the old joints start to seize up that doing the v-berth shuffle is becoming somewhat difficult.

My preliminary measurements show it will work if using an extension design. That way we still have a bit of access to Starboard of the berth when it's in. The settee may be a slightly lower height then normal to allow the berth to slide over it when opened but I can adjust the vanity height to compensate. It's still in the design phase so it may or may not happen. We can both live with the V-berth the way it is if necessary. I just thought to make it nicer for Fredia, a little more feminine.

Charlie,

Good stuff. I like your ideas (although I share the pullman concerns above -- hope you can sort that out. It looks like you might have some headroom and hull flare to work with.)

I especially like the idea of loosing the outboard pilot berth -- they'll make great locker/shelf space.

On the shower, if you don't have room to install a catch pan in the head, you could add a simple drain to a shower sump down in the forward bilge area. It would have a small dedicated bilge pump/float switch that would automatically discharge the grey water overboard.

One thought while your re-doing the interior might be thinking about allowing a place for somthing like an old Luke soapstone fireplace or even a newer type heater /fireplace. Both for warmth and the unbeatablle amabiance afire makes. BTW, I really like the pullman idea. Nice going Rick
I've been looking at heaters and really haven't decided on one yet. I do like the newer Newport Propane units though. They fit in a small space nicely and have a bit of fireplace feel to them. Thanks.

Thanks for the shower ideas John. I'm still kicking it around. Me? Hell, I'd just shower out in the cockpit but the missus ain't into that...

Lurve dem Newports. Want to move to a colder climate just so I can have one....

Had thought to have one anyway but when you live in a climate where even in mid winter a simple oil lamp (courtesy of the Stillmeister) quite adequately takes the chill away its hard to justify.

We have a Luke soapstone. Works great. I'd recommend it. Put a granite slab underneath though.

Luke Fireplace

Cormeum,
I love those old S&S designs in wood. Is your boat Luke Built? If I could find an old Luke soapstone fireplace, I would rebuild my boats interior just to find a place to instal it. I think they are really lovely to look at , and a great way to add some extra heat in those cold winter days.

We had some light flurries at dawn but nothing since. If it snows, we'll get some...

Thanks midnight, ours was built at Derecktor's. We do have a Luke stove and the fireplace.The fireplace was original equipment and we replaced the alcohol Luke stove with one in LPG.
They are still making the same ones:
