Ken: I'm really having a difficult time visualizing that. You mean you have the same hatch and stairway from the Pilothouse sole down into the bosuns locker, and have utilized the space for a Captain's cabin, complete with shower, head and queen berth? I don't think I went down into the N-47 bosun's locker, but I recall the N-37 being 4.5 to 5' wide and full beam between the bulkheads. Are the bulkheads moved further apart on the N-47? With the extra height, is an entrance to such a Captain's cabin possible next to the pilothouse stairway?

I thought I recalled being able to stand not quite straight in the N-37 engine room, even being a foot lower than the 47' as you pointed out. Was I mistaken about this? What height is the ER ceiling in the 37'? Thanks in advance for clearing up the conjecture.

Thanks again to Joe Pica and Ken for their inputs here! Who'd a thunk a simple question or two would have revealed secret compartments!

Would really like to see pics of the Captain's Cabin you describe. Sounds like a much larger version of the second "cabin" on the Ranger tugs, no?

Plus one here, Animal. It's not often that you get some actual insight into the thinking, planning and marketing of a line of products like this. Major thanks.

Just toured a GH37 here at Aquamarine in Daytona. There's also a N47 here.

I love the layout of this boat. They told us about one for sale on the West coast of FL.

It's about time, Bum. Now get your carcass over to Ft. Myers and take a gander at Puffin. Let me know if you need company.

I recently made an offer on a GH37 and it was accepted after a little wrangling. Survey and sea trial coming up.

I really like these boats, and I don't mind the funky styling. Hope I can drive the damn thing.

We plan on making a Bahamas trip early this summer with the family, if I get the boat all sorted out that is. Anybody want to make the trip with us? Hold our hands? :-)

We just officially moved on our boat this month. Shouldn't we see if this is going to last?

And it is Puffin...

Probably will.

They said it was on Yachtworld, but I've never seen it.

I'm really excited for you, dude. You'll get the hang of the boat very quickly if all things work out. Please stay in touch with us and tell us whay you've discovered about this design. Maybe you could convince the hierarchy to include a "Great Harbor" section. You'd make three that I know of, maybe four.

Way to go, Dude. We are looking at a trip to the Abacos in May. We couldn't cruise together because of disparity of speeds, but we could keep a watch out for you. Where do you plan to leave from? We will leave from Ft. Pierce.

Beach: I was just viewing your previous post that included an N-37 and I noticed something funny looking about the profile. Then I realized that it was the boat sitting behind it. Nevertheless, if I photoshop the background style "into" the N-37 and move the FB forward, it makes a very striking profile, however impractical. GH DownEast anybody?

Larry, put a pilot house at the front of the house with a low profile fly bridge behind it. Could be a winner.

Not sure where to cross over since I've never done it before. Heck it's going to take me forever just to get it to Florida from south Texas. Is Ft Pierce the best place to cross ?

Is the Okeechobee waterway still a possibility for a shallow draft boat? This GH draws less than 3 feet allegedly.

I have lots of research to to obviously...

Don. You'll have to explain that idea a bit more. The pilothouse is already at the front of the house, no? You mean a fly-bridge behind it, like on a Hatt 43 or something like that?

Yeah, raise the pilot house where the bow level is the floor. Put the flybridge behind the raised section ala Fleming.

FINE , most times of the year 10 ft for the commercials is maintained as depth.

Stop by if you go over west to east , were at Ortona.

Congrats and good luck with the rest of the sales process! Let us know what else you learn about the design during the survey!

Don't forget to count all the dreamers who keep peppering those owners with questions!
