Cool additions. I love the way you made the round corners in the cup holders. I'd do it, but the solid blade supports on my antique Craftsman band saw won't keep the bladd running true when opened up high enough to fit this thick of a piece in.

I always cut outside the line and tweak on my belt, disc and drum sanders.

It is true that we were off sailing instead of attending cup holding classes but we elected to leave the builders to personalize their boats their own way.  Carlita does have a cup holder along with a paper towel rack.

 

This is the fun part, the boat is done and there is no pressure produce, now you can play and make the boat live how you want.

 

God work Amos.

Thank you.  I was just joking around about boat design/cup holders; maybe I should have put in some more smiley faces!

Nice work Amos.  You'll find the shelving very useful.

 

For builders who haven't installed the sheer strakes -- it's much easier to install the shelf-supporting cleats before doing the s-strakes.  Same for any drawers you may want that may be stowed between Blks 4 & 5 that [for easy access] slide out over the bunks.

 

For Chessie I'm still trying to figure out where to put hangers for shirts, hats, jackets, etc.

More mods:

 

Installed a GPS holder using RAM mounts (highly recommend RAM mounts, the swivel balls aren't just plastic; they have an aluminum core, and the GPS mount has little roller bearings that ease insertion/removal of the unit).

My awesome wife sewed up an organizer for the cabin bulkhead.  It was so useful last time we went sailing we are going to install one on the starboard side as well.  As you are sitting in the cockpit with your back against the bulkhead, you can reach in and grab what you need without having to get up and go in the cabin.
