Re,Re Redesign

Why is it that when you a building it it looks great then the pratical side of you says" That's Dumb as Chit " i built a storage locker on the Starboard side and had a extra helm chair there , Wrong removed it and changed the lay out of the Galley. Also Mounted the micro above the cook top bolted in place. Alot more usable than that seat, Oh well it happens !

FF it was a toss up, on my last boat it the fridge was raised i had tried to work out a way to have it up at eye level. And i turned everything 4,000 ways and it either didn't work out or was in the way of anyone sitting on the rear couch area.above the cook top is the micro i will take another photo and see if it gives a better idea. I DO wish it was higher nothing worse than bending over to get a cold beer thats why i have a girl friend

Light and strong.That's all you need.Your boat,your layout.Have fun with it.You could build everything modular style,then change things around until you like the fit,and secure everything.

Thanks ben2go i have finished building the sitting area in the rear, designed the galley table, Finished the AC wiring and moved the original placement of the AC breakers along with covering the helm seat box with matching light T&G . It is a boat i threw the original plan away and started flying by the seat of my pants i now like the lay out better.

Interior layouts in boats can be tricky.Plans are great for those that just want a boat.If you're gonna cruise regularly,it's sometimes better to toss the plans.Just have to keep the boats balance and low weight.Sounds like you got the hang of laying out the boat for your needs.
