I also removed the back rests and built in 4 shelves running the length of the bunks. The upper area of the bunks was covered with Mahogany veneer ply with teak louvered doors. Behind the back rest cushion those shelves were covered with painted ply with hinged doors. This not only enhanced storage but really improved the interior looks. Two additions that gave the appearance of increased interior space were the dead port added to the front of the v-berth and the 1/2 inch Lexan covering the cockpit sliding hatch. The dead light allows me to look forward and see if the boat is drifting at anchor. I cut a second cockpit hatch and installed a bulkhead separating the cockpit area from the interior. This created a huge storage area and complete access to the engine shaft and tiller tube. I also added a removable inner forestay with running backs. Dan
