  1. Stern Access 30+ Part II

    In response to comments on the previous blog entry. Yes! Access to the quadrant is easy. You do have to lie on your back, but you can scooch right up under it. I constructed a shelf to fit over the fuel tank which is mostly the same level as the quarter berth. Eventually I may put a water heater in there which would disrupt access, but for now it's good. You could even cut further back along the panel to get more access.

  2. Stern Access 30+

    I have been meaning to post this for awhile but only recently took some pics. The aft end of the 30+ is only accessible through the lazarette. It's not a comfortable space. Add a spare battery various hoses, and a hot water heater and its nearly impossible to get in there. And if one does manage to get in, they may be there for a very long time, possibly forever. Even the marine mechanic inspecting the engine and exhaust complained about getting stuck and he was about 5-3, 130 pounds and very nimble. ...
  3. E29 Starboard Side Storage (Part 2)

    What fools are we to try to force rectangular furniture into our round boats? More properly, these things should be some sort of honeycomb structure, growing organically from the hull while lending it strength. Or perhaps Nautilus chambers. *sigh* but instead, I've gone where everyone has gone before...

    A second problem to solve was that "The E29 has insufficient storage space for a cruising boat," says, everyone who has ever reviewed it. Furthermore, pretty much all the ...

  4. Galley Deets

    Can't seem to add photos to the "comments" section, so I'll tack on an extra post.

    Thanks all, for the kind words. Soft focus is a friend to some of the details...

    I should add that this, like most of my "additions" was made so that it can be easily removed, if putative future owners don't appreciate it, or the port settee somehow becomes vital to reclaim.

    Here come more details than most would want to know:

    I did purchase ...

  5. Galley Extension E29

    Last winter and spring, I committed a few more projects / abominations on my boat. These next few posts confess to some interior modifications that I have been thinking about for a few years and finally executed while the boat was hauled-out and sitting next to the workshop for nine months. The overall goal of these was to explore how the E29 might be converted to more of a cruising boat, and increase "livaboardability."

    One thing that I always run into (and mercifully ...
