Nice work Signman. I would not have realized you can get that much comfort in 20' boat until I saw your pictures.

The interior is Pettit off white which is just a little on the warm side. It goes well with the red mahogany stain as well as the burgandy exterior.

What sort of genset have you got planned, or will you be getting 120vac from shorepower, or both?

Of what material did you cast the seashell draw pulls? Nice touch. :)

Will you be setting up a small painting studio on the boat?

Oh, I'm full of questions today! :lol:

Ask away, its always fun to talk boats! Not looking for a genset, 12v seems to have all the versatility I need, plus some great lanterns for that soft warm glow that can't be duplicated. Of course it will have shorepower , the refer is 120v ac and propane for lots of ice etc.
Hi-density foam carved the shell and silicone mold, casting epoxy is the final product and then silver leaf for that "art deco" look I going after. The mermaid is also done that way. The Buick portholes are okume and epoxy with silver leaf.
Yes a studio is part of the deal, as the wildlife is fabulous here and all over the San Francisco bay and delta. 1000 miles of water inside the Golden Gate.
Glad you all approve. Zignman
