“Zeus” was built in 1933.
The shed will be gone!!
My aim is to take the shed off, do away with the deck up till approx 10' from the front apart from a small walk way ( sorry for the technical non know how).
Then to give some headroom inside, a higher cabin space rising to a wheel house / lounge/ extra 2 berths at the aft!!! (get me)!!!
Just for space for a shower and loo and galley area( once again get me)!! I think
Zeus is beautiful, but requires a heck of a lot of attention, I'm prepared to give it my all.
I hope with my skills ( and the help of others)!! I know in the not too distant future, my questions will be the size of engine and stuff like that?!!
Lots to learn about her and how to make her special !!
There are some beautiful Thames cruisers out there, hopefully with some elbow grease and a very deep pocket I'll make her look something to be proud of!
I can't wait to start really, but she's moored so far away at the moment!
Coming home ( nearer ) in the next few weeks!!
She is quite a confusing shape, as there is nothing for definite that I've seen!
A sister vessel etc!
I'm sure in my travels over the next few years, her history will reveal itself.
Another quick question if I may be so cheeky!?
Is there a rule of thumb as to what I can / should do to the top of her , cabin wise?
