Actually I really like the contrast but then I will never be an
interior decorator, nor a painter. My compliments to your wife. Nice
move on your part too;-)

it does require too much tending. I installed it when my plans were to
avoid all propane and to use a kerosene stove. I tired of the rigor of
the kerosene stove and now use a propane camp stove.
Sorry to hear about that. I was looking at those as well and wanting
to avoid propane. Now it looks like the best choice and have a good
propane detector which I did with my van conversion. I forgot to ask
about the hard dodger as well. Is that an upgrade to the original
plans? Looks great and I see is a walk-through with a hard closure for

love to hear the whole story on this baby! What a great canal cruiser
it would make!
But not to bug you too much. What is the deal on those raised
sections? Are they both raised in port and lowered under way, or just
the forward one? I can see where the end panel is removable and then
are the sides hinged? (I caught a brief look at a portion of the wheel
Also am wondering about the stern drive. Is it almost in a tunnel for
shallow water work? And what size engine is it? What is the cruising
speed and how is the hull made?
I can sure see her in the European canals. Would be somethin' else
alright. Just need the curtains and a couple planters:-)

PB&F did suggest a shelter in their upgrade but it didn't look much like mine. The port shelter does support an 80W solar panel which is one of the best additions. The boom had to be raised with jaws to clear the shelters and I added the sheet car and its track. I did add the operating ports, perhaps stupidly, to the hull, but that extra breeze is nice in Virginia.
><http://markvdesigns.tripod.com/boatbuilding/> is Marks site. If you click on the "background" link the boat in its orginal form is seen at the bottom of the page. It's strip built and it had some brief owners after Mark. The last, before me, added the stern doghouse which permits standing room in the galley. I added the doghouse forward. The additions are ugly but they function well and make the boat more comfortable. They are fixed and I confused things by posting photos from different times.

- Hi James,
When I click on the link you posted, it only brings up the exterior
shots of the AS29, the launch, and the kayaks. No other links/tool
bars/ navigation tools are visible. Any ideas what am I doing wrong?
- Hello David. This caught me also. Just click on the top picture to
see the most excellent interior views.
