Thanks Smackdaddy for the compliment, but we owe it to Ted Irwin. He did the design, and most of the ones that you see today have been modified, to our opinion, wrongly. A poplular alteration is to enclose the dinnette and make it a closet, or to enclose the wonderful open space between the galley and the dinette. I don't know why people need so much storage, as we have just about everything anyone could want, along with lots of backup pumps, parts etc. and still have cabinet room. When we redid her, we found every bit of space behind and under stuff so that we have more cargo than most, including, at this time of year, months of groceries, as we are in the Bahamas and most things are not available here. We do, however, adhear to the saying "a place for everything and everything in its place" and that is how you avoid becoming a pack rat.

The part I like was the "3 hours every 2 days of gen set run time". Now that is energy (electron) storage, considering all the loads, sweet.

Oceanaire - Wow, just wow. Now, about that wine cellar.... after sailing, how long do you have to refrain from opening the red before it settles down sufficiently to enjoy?

Well duh... In the root cellar of course, next to the herb garden and hydroponics. Good question though.

Well I saw the hydroponics just aft beneath the peeing cupid (innovative set-up I must say) - I just missed this mythical "wine cellar". Could you have mistaken it for the dryer? Or is that actually a cellar/decanter all rolled into one?

I think the drier door is actually a concealed entrance to the stairway to the wine cellar. Very, very slick. Keeps the riff-raff from finding it and absconding with the goods.

Oceanaire - This is fun at your expense which I "think" you're good with. Major kudos on your boat. And another thing, you standing up against a few Irwin naysayers - very cool.
