Permission to Come Aboard
(No smoking inside the boat, please)
A short tour of the interior of Bugler's Holiday.
Some pictures are dated, as new furniture was brought in and new electronics were added over the years.
Main salon at the time the boat was purchased.
The 2 large chairs were replaced with 3 tub chairs to complement the love seat
for additional seating space. Forward is the galley/dinette down,
and still further forward is the guest cabin and head.
Original seating arrangement in the main salon.
Stairs leading up to the aft deck, over top of the aft cabin.
The dinette, used not just for dining but to do "on-air" reports from events around the province.
The table rolled down to form a third sleeping area for additional guests.
The galley got a lot of use, with its AC/DC fridge, microwave, stove/oven, hot/cold water
and the occasional cold drink for hot days (or any other day for that matter).
A V-berth forward gave enough room for our hard-working crew,
with their own closets and washroom facilities, heat/AC, stereo and lighting.
Inside the forward guest cabin with doors to guest head, main hallway, and closet.
The forward guest head.
The aft stateroom, with heat/AC, head, radio, natural lighting, and lots of room to relax.
Forward view of the aft cabin with storage space, mirrors, and ledge.
The aft AC unit was under the bed, along with more storage room.
Shower in the main aft cabin.
Aft head and storage closet in the captain's cabin.
Our main breaker panel for AC/DC/generator/shore power.
Secondary panel for additional equipment was located at the top flybridge.
Below decks the twin turbo-charged Detroit diesels and generator.
Batteries for main engines housed in the covered boxes between the engines.
We cruised around 9 knots, but we could get up on plane and do 21 knots if we were in a hurry.
