Dark, no windows, unacceptable seating arrangements, and a wooden handled banging device...looks totally corporate to me!

I did the same thing. The forward berths were a joke, having a large chart table and storage has worked out really well. I also enlarged the anchor locker. Will post some pics next time I'm on the boat.

sounds like a fun project. Our V-berth is the unofficial pantry.

Can you have it done by the weekend so we can see it? Lol. We have been thinking of redoing ours as well.

All the way up in the bow , opening ports (with deadlights) might be nice for light and air.

Here's the office and extra storage I got by taking out the v berths. I repurposed the drawers that were under the berths by stacking them and moved the bulkhead for the anchor locker aft to allow for more chain.
