Re: State Series ----> Cabin Clam Skiff
those dimensions are for the hull. I'd say that the aft 4' would be
given to power and the fore 6' to an open bow; one doesn't live
"inside" forever :-)Still, a 21-23' box is LARGE.
It is difficult to see how the box can be less than 5 1/2' wide and
have two comfortable berths, though one could lose 6" of that by
putting the berths on the same side and skimping a bit on width in the
galley and the other furniture on that side. Of course, having the
"occasional" berth in the main saloon is no problem for a single
I visualize the accomodation, from aft going fwd. being engine space,
then in the cabin; Locker on one side, head across, "captain's cabin"
(berth across from desk/library/enclosed reading/charts, etc.) then
the main saloon with a berth on one side, across from open area with
chairs and the helm. Finally, the open foredeck and then anchor/wet
So, maybe it could have 6" side decks and a box that is 6'3" tall, 5'
wide, and 23' long. I wonder what that would do for stability on a 33'
X 6' hull????
