My first portfolio

The end of Gray

The deckhouse was in two halves: a tightly packed scrum on the right where Cecilia did the cooking, and gracious living on the left. The table you see is laid  for five, but the overlay on the wall could be attached to seat 12. I built every piece of wood you can see except the exterior walls. The cooking pans hung from the ceiling, swayed with the waves, and occasionally fell off. The cooking stove on the right was like a diesel powered Aga. The sink area had faucets for hot and cold fresh water, sea water (important for crossing the Gulf Stream) and wine.

The deckhouse was the first to build because it was basically where we cooked, ate and lived when indoors. You stepped inside from the quarter deck, and you stepped down a companion ladder if you wanted to go below instead of hanging out.
