Removed my 2nd steering station,
And opened up the back.
Going to finish the job tomorrow.
Going to make a new door frame for the opening and make a bifold door that will look identical to the parker door, and even reuse the windows.
Then I plan to fabricate a helm seat that hindges off the port side wall.
I post some more pics when the job is done!
I think this is going to make things soo much easier when doing my 6 pack charters!

Interesting effect, Ron, a sort of compromise full pilot house, canvas back cabin.

It's a lot like the local lobster boats; shelter from the weather for your cold days but open for access to the passengers.

What kind of charters do you run and from where?
I run my 2520 out of Green Harbor.

I'm still working on this project to finish it up.
Have a busy week and weekend, so couldn't do much this week.
My fishing club.(Mass striped bass association) has got me busy this week with our annual MSBA sport fishing expo (at Gillette stadium)
So if there any members here in the Mass. area, come on by and say hi,
It's going to be a great show !!! :D

Thats the access hatch for the holding tank for the flushing toilet.
I hate it!!!
Would love to replace it with something better, or atleast one that is flush with the floor level!
It's a pain in the arss to keep clean also !

I'll take some better pics of the dash and post them as soon as I can.
I'm fabricated a very cool grab handle/ keeper of stuff on the dash, on the port side!

Ron, really nice ideas. That is going to have much better access for you and your clients. Form follows function as they say... I can't wait to see your final pics and see how and where the door folds.

As to the hatch you keep stepping on, I bought a cheap rubber backed bathroom carpet from Target and cut it to size for my cabin. It cuts down on the noise in the cabin, softens the edges on the hatch I keep stepping on, can be hosed down or tossed at season end and replaced next year. Here is a pretty bad pic but you can get the general idea.

Wow! Really nice work. And I was all proud of the fore-deck anchor locker I cut in this weekend :oops:

One question: the snowstorm game...does it haunt you?

Go Pats! :twisted:
