Mason Bay

The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

Sorry, was in a bit of a hurry yesterday...
Here is a walk through starting at the bow..
Chain locker.
Workshop and tools, just full headroom here with a small floor area , separared with a full bulkhead which also supports the mast above. Aft of here is an atwartships double bunk. This is between the 2 bulkheads i am doing now. The bunk will hinge up along the forward long side to big space under.. Moving aft into the 'Evening Saloon' access from deck. .Has 2 setees MIRO fire ,hearth, mantlepiece, stereo,booshelves behind.There is a narrow 800 wide coach roof over both the saloon and bunk with a long 1200 sliding hatch, the roof of this cabin top will be removable for engine removable when required ( not in my lifetime!)
The bulkhead between here and engineroom has a removable door also. Will have to remove stove also of course.
The wheelhouse is above engineroom with the toilet (composting) is in the rear starboard corner, dry exhaust on c/l and goes up the steel mizzen mast above.
Aft of the wheelhouse and extending to the bulwarks both side is the 'Day Saloon' with a dinette to stbd which converts to guest double bunk and galley bench to port-remember have a lovely solid Kauri bench 2.7 long for here and 700 wide-will reduce to 600 I think. Ther is a custom wood range in the aft bulkhead.Under this saloon is the lazzarette, stores water tanks and 2 600w shelves that can be converted into 2 sea berths for passages, the motion here was fantastic comonig up from Bluff.
Then we have the verandah full width, The new roof will go over all. I know its a hard to read copy but try.
