Mocking up interior of 21′ Gaff Cutter

After rolling the boat the interior was sanded and any fillets that  weren’t done previously were finished off before the inside was coated with three coats of epoxy resin.
The photos below show the interior being mocked-up in preparation for a visit from the client. This was over the Christmas holidays on one of the windiest days of the winter. I was glad I had pushed the boat right into the workshop and I was able to bolt the doors closed. It was gusting to 65 knots for 2 days. (


This is the cabin looking forward towards the V-berth flat.

The mock-up was very useful in confirming the ergonomics of the cockpit and cabin. The client wanted to make sure that he could sit upright on the bunks. As it was head could have worn a top hat in there. So plenty of sitting headroom.

If you would like to discuss having your own boat built I’m always interested in talking about boats. Only last week I had phone call from a guy and we spent a good half hour discussing the merits of different woods and glues. So pick up the phone and give me a ring +353 86 1586937.
