KK42 frd stateroom

Any traps involved in deleting the frd head in the stbd berth arrangement and converting it to the island queen berth layout?

Thinking recycling the existing drawers into the aft end of a new bunk frame. Still some other cabinetwork to try to match...

Cheers in advance.

Initially, we thought that a centre queen would be the most desirable option, but when our boat with the offset queen became available for purchase, we jumped at it because of the very fine work the PO had put into the boat. We would not trade it now for a centre queen, as the second head offers major advantages over a single head. The forward head is a salt water flush which offers water conservation on longer trips between water fills. We use the salt water flush directly overboard when running or in remote locations, or for liquid wastes. Something to think about.

Thanks Jim. Yeah, it's not a huge negative, and there's advantages either way, certainly wouldn't be a deal breaker for an otherwise good buy.

But I sort of shot myself in the foot. The other half expressed a preference for not having to clamber over me in the middle of the night, and I was silly enough to agree that it was an intolerable intrusion into my personal space.

She hit me.

So now I'm stuck with having to at least appear to consider the importance of alternative choices wrt sleeping arrangements. So to speak.

If you are taller you will be sleeping on the inside against the hull
