LOL wait I gotta wipe the tears from my eyes.

Thank you so very much. Your engine room is truly an inspiration.

Stand up engine rooms

Some may get tired of me harping on this but I like the design of the Seapiper 35 with the 48" high engine room below the salon/galley. Just a minor crouch and big enough to store some tools and spare parts. 28" x 38" access hatches midship and stern, (front and rear of engine) Kneel or sit on the bottom hull.

This was our mechanic in Comox BC. Hayden.
He's obviously not fat but I was worried how he'd fit in our small boat engine compartment. No problem. He just wrapped himself around the engine like a cat. He was well over 6 feet tall. He lived aboard his boat in the harbor at anchor.

Having a walk in engine room access was a big deal for me and it has paid dividends many times over. There is six feet of headroom inside the door and about five feet of headroom in the space between the engines. Oil changes and other routine maintenance is a breeze as there is 360 degree access for each engine.

Did I forget to mention that we burn just a bit less than two gallons of diesel per hour at cruise?

Well, if I were bragging, I would point out that Semper Fi has an integral 500 gallon fiberglass fuel tank built into the hull that gives her an easy 1300 mile range with reserves. We traveled from Jacksonville, FL to Kentucky Lake this summer with a bit less (25-30 gallons) than a full tank on departure. We topped off with 243 gallons in Apalachicola, FL and came the rest of the way without adding any additional fuel.

OK, now I'll brag. I have four fuel tanks potentially containing a total of 300+ gallons of fuel good for at at least 1000 miles.

I'll call your 300 gallons of fuel and raise you 300 gallons of fresh water and 150 gallons of black water. By the way, I have been looking at your photos for the last several years and Carquinez Coot is a very nice looking boat.

You got me there. Have 200 gallons fresh water and 35 gallons black. Those limitations, however, have yet to be a difficulty.

Thanks!

Since sailing inland waters, need to fill only two of the four fuel tanks at a time, lasting nearly a year while consuming about 200 gallons.

Nope. But thanks for that :-)

We burn a bit over 20 gph at 20 knots. We haven't had it long enough to know for sure yet. We'll help you with your lines when you get here.

Our engine room isnt as tiny as a Bayliner 4788 but not as big as a Californian either. We had to compromise on that point. Still, it is not bad at all for this fat old guy to get around in there. Way better than our last boat for sure.

- Approx 9'6" head room (ER floor to salon ceiling) LOL.
- Considerable front, back and side ER working areas.
- Instantly accessible hatch-open and running engine, trans, or gen set viewing if needed during maintenance or otherwise.
- Two 100 gallon tanks (one each side)
- 3 +/- nmpg at 5.5 +/- knts on one engine running... 2 +/- nmpg at 6.5 +/- knts on twins... 1 nmpg at 16 to 17 knts... OMG nmpg at WOT 22 knts.

- Easy for you to do the mileage-math of 180 gals (having 10% reserve) at each of those speeds mentioned above!

- Fresh water total 77 gallons (two tanks).
- BW holding 30 gal tank + one of two heads having an ElectroSan

I have recently inserted my body in my engine "room" for the first time. This effort required re-powering with a smaller engine (although more hp), relocating my battery boxes, and moving the fuel tanks. I can now slither my body into one of two surprisingly comfortable positions on either side to do the required engine work. Luckily the majority of basic maintenance can be done sitting on the cockpit floor at the edge of the hatch.

Access to the rudder shaft and stuffing box requires slipping through a narrow opening under the cockpit seat. Luckily, I am fairly slim and this is possible with minimal lubrication, exhaling completely and turning my head sideways. If I was to bring snack food down there with me, I'd have to fast for a day before being able to exit. I'm sure I'd struggle to get out if someone complemented me while I was in there.

A Great Harbour N37 engine room is what I'd consider a live aboard.

BandB - I think you passed us on the ICW a few weeks ago.
We were burning a bit more fuel than you. Fortunately we carry 1000 gallons of fuel and approx. 300 gallons of fresh water and black water.
