Please note that the Deck day saloon and galley span full beam of the boat.Most conversions miss out on this,believing 'walk-round decks' are necessary.No way! We need a protected aft 'verandah' with no gale whistling down the side decks. Ha, how do you tie up? not that we make a habit of Marinas but if one does there will be a sampson post midships outside the wheelhouse door and we will tie up with a short strop and sort the springs and breast ropes later-this is what all the ferries do!.........More later
