Friday was a beautiful day and I had it off. I've seemed to have become a handyman for several clients. It affords me a lot of independence such as painting and sailing, and I appreciate that.
It would have been swell sailing day but opted to deep clean. I have had requests from online friends to describe the interior of Annie, a one-off Drascombe. So as I swabbed, I got these snaps...
|You are looking aft, starboard side. The door is storage |
under the bridge deck and the centerplate trunk is on the right.
I had just replaced the teak floor boards. The wheel is take-up for the
centerplate line that leads out to the cockpit.
|I made a padded filler to span the well|
|This makes a level sleeping area|
|Storage netting extends around both sides with a |
heavy bungee threaded through the top
|Since I am rather thin I use a 2 1/2" |
self inflatable mattress
|Here is the berth made up. It is out of the way with the|
companionway on the port side.
|Looking forward there are two compartments with heavy gear: extra claw anchor|
water and tools
|With hatches replaced|
|Originally the centerplate trunk extended|
forward. Since the stainless plate did not fill the entire well
I was able to make a substantial cut-out that afforded
more room to move about below
|Brass door "button"|
|Small forepeak area beyond the forward bulkhead|
|Small ventilation hatch|
|Shelf for books, charts and registration papers with leather 'lee cloth'|
|Aft cabin coaming basket storage for quick grabs|
|Centerplate well cover with removable fiddles|
Looking aft, port side. The companionway is above and the gusher pump
plumbing can be seen inside the bridge deck storage.
