Bluewater is a simple boat. Her interior is built for comfort at sea and ease of living while traveling. It occurred to us that many of our friends and readers have never seen the interior of our little boat. So we took a few images (after some straightening up) and put them in a gallery that you can see below. You will see that our space is small and efficient. You will see the heater and amazing tile job we put in last spring and if you look to the right in the photo you will see the day tank that we installed this summer.
You will see the Nookie Nook, as Susanna calls it, the enormous forward v-berth that is larger than a king-sized bed. It is large enough for Nisa and us to sleep in.
In several images you will see the mast. A shining, sliver column. It is really white. But it sticks up through the deck and is a massive heat sink in the cold Alaskan winter. The silver bubble insulation makes a huge difference in how warm it is up front.
You will see our dinette, where we eat, make bread, work and plan the next step in our adventures.
You will see the galley — the kitchen to all you landlubbers — and the kerosene stove and oven that produces all our bread and tasty treatS. Did I mention that Susanna is the cupcake and muffin master? No wonder my pants don’t fit!
Then a view from the v-berth looking aft. This is Susanna’s morning view. She always sleeps in and is often the recipient of coffee in bed (as a bribe to get her up and going).
Then lastly, you will see what Bluewater looks like at night when we are offshore. All decked out in red LEDs. Our lamps were built by Mark Sutton in Portland, Oregon. We love them.
I hope you enjoy this little tour. Now maybe you can envision things just a little easier!
