    V-Berth Re-Birth Part I

    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...

    E29 Starboard Side Storage (Part 2)

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

    I should add that this, like...

    Galley Extension E29

    We cannot do New Years. We have a 3.5 hour drive to get to Nap town, so we would have to decline. We are going down this weekend for an overnighter in
