The vessel (interior)
Part of Fettler's major refit, back in the 90s, was the refinishing of the lovely teak bulkheads. Also, installation of the Taylor's paraffin cabin heater (which will be much appreciated in the cooler northern waters). The cushions with their vinyl covers are new too.
The galley is nicely fitted out with fiddled storage for cups and crockery, handy in a heavy seaway. The cooker is propane, but is as large as the space will accommodate and so will not swing on gimballs. We're thinking of replacing it with a smaller paraffin model.
