Cockpit and companionway

The term cockpit was used in the Navy it was where the coxswain who steered the vessel was located.

The console took up a lot of room in the cockpit so we’ve sealed the opening and will cut a hole for a slender steering column to attach and connect to cables below. This was not a fun job for Donny and Jeff as fiberglass is itchy and messy! The cockpit becomes like a family or living room where we will spend the majority of our time and we wanted as much room here as possible. We plan to finish the floor with teak grate.

The steps extended out into the galley floor almost to the hatch (you can see the line of holes where it was hinged). Jeff cut the top step off making the first step lower which helps with head clearance and moved the steps back eight inches or more. Eventually he’ll make new steps but this was helpful for now.

My family is the center of my life—my husband of thirty three years; our thirty-one year old daughter; our five year old cat, Gracie. I thrive on journaling, writing fiction, blogging, reading, walking, and connecting with friends and family. My creative endeavors cover a wide spectrum: scrapbooking, card making, beading, clay, and photography. I was born in Toronto but grew up an island girl on Grand Bahama Island. Although I never boated or leaned to sail there! I've lived in Ocala Florida for the past thirty five years. Jeff and I have been dreaming of living aboard and cruising for several decades: and now the first chapter of the dream is reality! My favorite quote: "Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen." ~ Emerson Since I work virtually I coined the word "vugs" which means virtual hugs! Vugs to you! Fair winds and follow your heart.
