In Topic: HELP! What is this room called?

Your boat looks lovely, I just can't get my head around where the extra depth comes from, my engine is immediately  below where your four red and white tiles are, just inside the back doors!

Ignore that step with the tiles on it, that's just to allow 2 people to stand in the hatch and is removable. Do you step down on to the engine cover from your back doors? Also is there a lot of space between the top of your engine and the cover?

That is nice, it's a much larger and deeper space than my back end, do you have a separate engine room?

Nope, the engine is under the floor. It's accessed through a hatch in front of the range. The base of the seat is the top of a cupboard in the toilet and the little shelf bit next to it under the porthole is on top of the calorifier. Not at the boat at the moment so haven't got any better pictures to describe it better.

Ours is quite a usable space but we still call it the back end smile.png

I'm afraid 3 - 3 1/2 hours is a good time for Hatton but you do seem to have the makings of a good crew! 


Five of us (1 steering, 4 on the locks) once did Hatton uphill in 1 hour 35 minutes tongue3.gif
