And I would highly recommend you do the build based upon your posts and attention to detail and expertise! Come on Powerball!Thanks for all the compliments. The 35' Duffy is an exceptional well designed downeast boat, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a boat in this size.
The interior is still being outfitted by the new owner. My part of the build has long been finished, so the interior pictures I have were from months ago. (These are work in progress pics) The dash pictures are just a mock-up, no cuts had been made when these pics were taken. The new owner hopes to be completed with everything by this spring, there are lots of little details to finish up including non-skid, bottom paint, boot stripe, stripe on the house, etc, etc. The owner is doing a clean, high quality job on the outfitting. He's going to have a special boat when it's done.Powdepro,
Could you post some photos of the helm and inside of main cabin? The most recent interior images were taken just after the interior gelcoat work was completed. Nothing with everything assembled. Thanks.
All future mechanics working on this boat will be thanking you for the great engine room hatches. Also the engine control is on a horizontal section, that is important but not always provided.
The hatches were built by a local fabrication shop per the owners specs. You can see in the pictures that the underneath side edges are designed to hold 2 inch insulation in place, one of the hatches in the picture has the insulation Installed, the other does notThose hatches look great.
Who built them? Is there integral soundproofing?
There is a lot of room in front of the engine, I went with a 10’ shaft (if I remember right), which left about 30” distance between front of engine and forward bulkhead. Aft of the engine can also be accessed, but it’s not as spacious. And all the systems, tanks, genset, etc are outboard of the engine, so access to everything is really good.Brian,
It could be the camera angle, but is there enough room to get down on either side of the engine to get at the side components? Or is there additional access hidden on either side of the hatches ?
Hard to tell in the pic.
beautiful job !
