    Well, one's a kitchen and one's a galley Upstairs kitchen has fridge/freezer, domestic gas cooker, washing machine, etc. and the downstairs galley is a cosy corner with the Rayburn, a sink, and a few galley cupboards. Also two saloons - one is the upper saloon, one is the downstairs snug.

    There are also two sleeping cabins which is another first for me, woohoo, I have space

    Think I should do that video tour!

    We have more space on our newish (to us) boat and it makes life on board so much more pleasant. It is not on the scale of yours and i would like to see what the interior of a 53' boat looks like.

    Hello Ellie. My how time has flown by.

    I get the feeling you have been hankering for such a boat like this since you sailed on Queen Galadriel

    Lots of work ahead that's for sure. We wish you the v best of luck.

    Where are you going to berth her once on the S Coast ?

    Sandy & Lizzie.

    Hello Ellie,

    Congratulations on the boat. I hope she's everything you want her to be.

    Pedant mode on: I think that whatever mod cons the upper 'kitchen' has its still another GALLEY!

    Kitchens on boats indeed! Bah humbug!

    Pedant mode off.

    As others have said, boat handling will be very different. No more putting an arm or boot out to push off from things or prevent last minute collisions. Big fenders and learn to use springs and warps to move her with the engine not any pushing at all! Stopped with the engine means stopped, not just nearly stationery. Plan and plan and have some fallback plans!

    'Rayburn Roasty-Toasties' has a certain ring to it? Enjoy, proper MFV weather today!
    Why argue with a nautical wall? I just read the graffiti these days.

    Pics (at least), PLEASE!

    Enjoy, its all good and part of living an interesting life.

    Even, if the worst happens, it was only built by man and can be put right!

    Regards

    You haven't seen the pictures. From the ones I saw you wouldn't know it was in a boat, it looks just like the typical kitchen in a two-bed Victorian terrace, complete with back door out into the yard

    No its not as I pointed out to my now X wife when I spent all the money saved for a kitchen on a boat, its just an extra kitchen with a nautical theme .
    Now what happened to all the 2 speed self tailing wenches?
