It do look good but you'd certainly have trouble keeping water in that sink if the boat was moving around, especially heeling - don't think it would handle slosh well.

emoney I think we need to get used to seeing "Maple" and similiar sustainable woods on boats. I, for one, think whoever, did a nice job with the layout and the way it shows in the pics, anyway. It doesn't look to be too "bunk-focused", but for a couple, how much more bedding areas does one need? As for the "mis-matched" wood, probably has a lot to do with the photog skills and camera angles as well. Looks to me like it's all "stain grade" woodwork, at least as far as the pics show.

The rebuild to "tedious" specifications got me going

Meticulous perhaps?

blt2ski The issue I see for some, it looks more like wood work one would find in a home vs a boat. I like the look from that angle. BUT as noted, not sure I want that look in my boat! BUT, it is clean, looks reasonably well done etc. Hard to say how fast or slow it will sell etc.

Nothing wrong with plywood either. Lot of our boats use a plywood veneer. I have a teak plywood on my boat, with solid edges etc.

MarkCK I bet it sells pretty quick if the price is half way reasonable and looks ok when you look at it. You can talk about a boat being seaworthy, but the glass sink will sell the boat by itself.

ilikerust Nothing wrong with the use of maple per se, but some of the execution details leave much to be desired. Several areas where maple veneer plywood was used and the bare edges left showing. A couple pretty sloppy-fitting miter joints, at least one obviously filled with some sort of putty.

SailKing1 Way to many sharp corners for me. It's just not that hard to round the corners and much more comfortable when you get slammed into them moving about in rough seas.

CharlieCobra Maple has HORRIBLE rot resistance. Not a good choice on a boat....

deniseO30 It does really make a boat look lighter and brighter! Guess I wr wr wrong about the MDF. I see a little tiger maple there on some of the frames.
