    Default Working boat interior photos?

    Does anyone have any good photos of working boat interiors whether fishing boats, small tugs, power, sail, pilothouse, cabin, bunks, you name it? I am having a hard time coming up with any that are not fancy yacht pics or (with apologies to our hosts) shiny varnished Woodenboat magazine examples far removed from their working history. Thanks!

    I expect that you want pics of the interiors of wooden workboats, right?

    Yes, though something like a steel boat with wood interior would also be interesting.

    For sale listings might be a good place to start. Should be some here. You'll need to hit the "images" button in each ad.

    I do a lot of commercial boat work, but nobody - I mean nobody - in the commercial world seems to want a wood interior. Fire regulations, too much maintenance, etc. What exactly are you looking for in the pictures? Joinery style? Layout? Construction details?

    Thanks, J. Madison, I actually already spent some time looking over that "Rosalie" listing before I started this thread. If I were in the Northwest then finding a boat like that and converting it as a modest cruiser would be another way to go.

    mmd, I am looking for inspiration as I consider tackling a project like Buehler's Captain Eddie. I'd like to see some examples of neat and presentable interiors that are mostly white paint and ordinary wood and plywood, oiled not varnished and without a trace of teak or polished brass in sight.

    PS--And thanks, Bobcat, that's a great start.

    cluttonfred, search thru the postings here in the bilge and abovedecks for photos of Ian McColgin's 'Meg Merrilees' - he finished the interior with the exact ethos that you state above.

    Thanks for that, mmd, I found the thread below and you're right, that's very much the style I have in mind, though I am nowhere near as ambitious in terms of the size of the boat.

    Don't know if these will help much, a couple of before and afters of our boat "Snoose", a 37' converted salmon troller.

    Before of the pilot house when we bought her. I don't have any afters of this area, its been cleaned up a lot.

    Before of the foc'sl, pretty much as a fishing boat.

    And the same area now, with added head compartment to left.

    The former fish hold when we purchased her.

    Thanks for posting, Ron. Great to see the inside of Snoose. Is there heat in the former fishhold?

    On a related note, are folks finishing the inside of the hull itself, whether planks or plywood? I have heard some say to let it breath inside, others to finish everything everywhere.

    There must be some interior shots in this thread.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Yes, there is a Wallas diesel forced air furnace mounted in the pilot house and ducted fore and aft. It doesn't blast you out, but it certainly makes it somewhat comfortable in cold weather.

    Snoose has a full ceiling which is painted, but the inside face of the hull between the hull and ceiling is not finished. (And I know most of you know, but for the few who might not, the ceiling is not the overhead, but rather the "inner hull", or planking applied to the inner face of the frames.)

    Thanks I figured the oil stove would heat the f'c'scle and the pilothouse, but wasn't sure about the back cabin.

    I had a diesel furnace ducted to both cabins. It died. I put a woodstove in the main cabin, but there is no heat in the back cabin.

    Here's a search on Yachtworld for 34-50' wood, power, under 70K. There are various old, new, troller, once fancy ones listed.

    My boats interior is put together a bit differenly than others, as I am a crappy carpenter.
    I litteraly just epoxy filet the whole thing together.Spot glue with temp braces. Minimum fastenings.Minimum framing.Almost nothing square.Much of it was built of palets as I was poor when she was built.
    The downside is that there is a lotta grinding band sanding .
