Re: Show me your sailboat's interior

Finally got a wide angle camera that portrays the interior much better.

That head compartment is great - two thumbs way up.

Re: Show me your sailboat's interior

Have been making changes to our old Catana. It will be obvious that I'm not about keeping the western nautical tradition

I recently redid the countertops in the galley. They had been done with tile. I went back with a laminate:

This is the base of the salon/dining table. It's a big hollow box. I drilled and installed pegs to have adjustable shelves within, and hung this curtain of (synthetic) sari material to hide the dishes etc inside

I re-covered the salon cushions with Sunbrella Furniture Fabric, but I made the pillows of a synthetic upholstery jacquard from the local fabric store. The pillows go wherever we want, as cockpit or net pillows. They're stuffed with dog beds so they're completely washable.

This is our cabin. The mattress cover is the same cloth as the pillows in the salon, but the underside panel is Phifertex. The "headboard" is the same sari as I made the pedestal curtain above, I made a quilted panel with little pockets which act as a nightstand of sorts. The wall coverings/vinyl are stained, so i hung the little tapestry to hide the stains.

This is the starboard head, which was modified to accept the C-Head composting toilet you see by pulling out the 'step' which supported the original head and fabricating a foam/fiberglass laminate flat floor.

Re: Show me your sailboat's interior

I just started the cabin part of my refit of my Sea Sprite 23. While it will never measure up to some of the boats here, you can be assured that any tours will be -very- short.

This is how the v-berth and Forepeak looked when I dragged her home. Very basic, not very big, and very very worn.

Today I mocked up the bulkhead between the v-berth and the forepeak. I have to extend the berth some as I do not fit (people must have been shorter 50 years ago) so I am going to be raising it up three inches to gain six inches of length. This means I need to cut into the space in the peak, but as you can see, I have plenty to spare.

Re: Show me your sailboat's interior

Here are a few pics of recent cabinet I built into what was a largely unused hanging locker. Still have half hanging locker left. Don't be too critical. This was my first ever interior construction attempt. Still have door grab and shelf fiddles to fit.

Re: Show me your sailboat's interior

Our boats interior is pretty much as built in 1961. I've only changed the cabinet fronts in the galley as clearance changes were made during it's second re-power(early 70's). When I repowered(#3), I built the new fronts.

I repainted the head a couple years ago and put some new sheet formica down. Plumbed in two old fixtures removed from a building project I had stored behind the original head sink. The old fixtures are great!

Because they're old style twist with washers, the flow is minimal, just right for a boat.

Very nice indeed. I hope you don't mind if I pinch the idea and do it on my boat as well!
