In addition to the cockpit, I have also had to consider the storage under it. I have a rooted objection to deep cockpit lockers that can get filled with water and which go deep down into the boat, so that many of the objects stored there are almost impossible to retrieve. I wanted a nice, dry lazarette, which I can access with ease at present, and hopefully without too much difficulty for another 10 years or so before old age puts an end to such gymnastics.
I had a boat; I had a model; I had drawings. They all told a slightly different story. The latter two were finally dismissed as more of a distraction than an aid and I started again from scratch. Please keep your fingers crossed that I've done it right!
The BBB looked enormous. In this photo the drive leg is resting on the bottom of the boat right at the stern.
