Just figured we could get some common "modifications" to the boat.
Have the old engine hatches that are shaped like a shoe box?
Im going to drill a hole and "inject" the hatch with insulating foam. Heat builds running the Genset and engine at cruise(FL Heat/Need A/C). Should help cool things off and make it even quieter in the saloon.
Heat build up in the forward salon? If you have a bug screen you can put a foam project panel from home depot inside the screen in the forward hatch and reattach fits like a glove and helps alot.
A portable A/C(notice a theme here
) fits perfectly under the v-berth insert but does block a drawer.
Spend alot of time at the lower helm and vertically challenged and don't have a helm seat? Make one out of 2x4's. I did it with basic tools in an afternoon.
How to Make Bar Stools
Run out of water on the hook? I added a 50 gallon water tank, installed it in my rear "box". I fill it up through a hose through the top and have a barb on the bottom for gravity filling my onboard tank when it runs dry. I don't use it much as a day tripper but it works for now. It's under the dog
This one isn't done but its also related to staying cool. I have a patio mister like this one.
It works okay but felt a bit flimsy so I ordered the nozzles which are 10/24 thread, thread pvc pipe with a 10/24 bit, screw in nozzles, cap the end and add a hose attachment. The limit is your imagination. I'm going to use my raw washdown when away from the marina and a separate hose at the dock(don't want marina water misting me

That's all I can think of right now.
