DulceSuerna,

We are newbie Bombay owners; working on her on the hard in central fl. Do you still have yours?
We'd love to ask newbie type questions about upgrades and modifications. Thanks so much!

Sorry for the late reply, I've been spending a lot of time away from the internet. The current owner has Far Cry for sale and hasn't used the boat much in the past couple of years. I don't believe the current owner is on any forums. I rarely see or hear from him and Far Cry is just one dock over from me... I don't know of any Bombay forums. There are a few Bombay Clipper owners here though.

Thanks roverhi! No quarterberth only two settees; and no passages YET! We are still looking at other boat interiors for inspiration.

We mainly need to work on interior and will have her out of water for a couple months working on her in a boatyard. We are thinking of removing the settee on the starboard side and extending the galley counter and storage along the whole length. There are only two of us so we think we'll still have plenty of room. Week long river trips and Intracoastal till we get familiar with her.

Any other interior (or other) upgrades that you'd recommend?

Far Cry is a gorgeous girl and an inspiration for our BC!
Hi Laura. Welcome to Sailnet. Thank you for the compliments directed to my previous sailboat. If you are just after more counter space, I would look at a hinged shelf that could come up behind the galley or beside it. We spent a lot of time using both settees when it was raining outside and needed them when friends went on trips with us. Good luck with your new boat and if you ever make it down to the Virgin Islands, please look me up!

Re: Bombay Clipper 31

Not familiar at all with the boats interior but will your mod's mean no sea berth on that side of the boat?? Not a big deal if you'll be at anchor every night but a pain for ocean passages unless you like sleeping on the sole.

Re: Bombay Clipper 31

OK, I thought you were looking for guns or other boarding deterrents for your security.

So what was the outcome? Did you buy her? If so, where are the photos? What are your plans?

Re: Bombay Clipper 31

safety equipment - life raft, life vests.. the only actual īthingsīinside are the engine, the main, the gib, a spinnaker, a gps, and a depth finder. not even the propane tank for the stove.

I wasnīt planning on hiring a surveyor. Iīve had about 6 long time seamen check it out inside out and they came with me sailing on it as well. all agreed it was in good shape. still will take it out of the water in the next few months.
