Boat looks great! Love the color. What is the layout like? What
are your plans for the boat, just weekending or do you have longer
term cruising plans?

Congratulations,

KD

Hi Kevin,

Yeah the colour is pretty special. There’s a long history of British
working boats being painted this colour. Actually mixing the right
colour was pretty hard!

The layout is chain locker fwd of the bitts, then double berth, then
head to stbd, open shelves to port.

In the main saloon pilot berth and settee to stbd and settee to port.

Galley is at foot of companionway to port with a really good nav
station with icebox under to stbd. The seat for the nav station
faces fore and aft and is directly fwd of the aft edge of the
coachhouse.

The galley bench is outboard and isa single piece stainless steel
fabrication with two in-built sinks. The stove is just outboard of
the centreline and faces fore and aft - it isn’t gimballed.

Zuline has no cockpit well so the aft area is a single flat berth
with provision for lee cloths to make sea berths. The engine,
batteries, diesel fuel tank and stowage are all under the berth flat.

All the floors with the exception of two at the bitts and one under
the engine (Yanmar 3GM30) are individually cast in silicon bronze.
All major keel
bolts are custom made nickel aluminium bronze and all other floor
bolts are silicon bronze.

Plans are for local cruising and Australian coastline first then who
knows? Anyone out there good at letters of resignation?

Regards

Mike

I am interested in having a BCC built and I can see from your photos that yours was built at the Wooden Boat School at Franklin in the Huon Valley.  

 

I have a farm at Crabtree and I keep my yellow hulled Superstition 26 tied up at Southbridge just a kilometre or two north of you in the Huon River.  I will be going down the river next weekend and I would be keen to look at your boat if it is still at Franklin.  I am also keen to talk with you about the issues and costs of having the boat built.  

 

Do you have a telephone number where I can call you and have a talk?

 

Regards
