OK! We made an offer on a Hinterhoeller Niagara 35 now the fun starts. We plan to live aboard after it splashes for the summer. We have already downsized from 4000 # ft to 3000 # ft and on the way down to 2000 # ft. New house will not be ready until November ’10.
Questions: WIRING: Wiring needs redoing. Has anyone got or can point me to a wiring schematic for this boat and the mast. Most of the electronics are 15+ years old so they will be replaced.
TRAVELER: I am not certain that I will like the split mainsheets setup. Has anyone added an aftermarket traveler. (Schaefer bridge traveler ?) Ideally, the strong points for the current blocks could be used.
DOUBLE BUNK: Has anyone modified the starboard cabin bunk into a true double bunk rather than a glorified Vee berth. I should mention that one of the attractions of the boat is the length of the settees; we are six five and six ft.
