Madrigal Photos

A few weeks ago, someone was asking me to see photos of Madrigal. I am always happy to show off our boat. As I waded through the thousands of pictures I have on flickr, I realized something incredibly embarassing - I didn't have any GOOD photos of the interior! Not really, anyway.

That set me on a mission to at least get a few good shots of the boat, and I will make a point of taking more soon.

In the meantime, here are the shots that I did take.

Our Dickinson Propane Heater, and Gollum.

Facing aft and starboard. You can see the galley, just barely.

The galley has changed many times over the past two years...but this is its most current state.

Facing Aft. Galley to starboard, quarterberth to port. BIG plate of nachos and a seltzer right in the middle.

Another shot of the galley. Not sure why it's so bleached out.

A fairly bad picture of the head.

Anyway, that's a start. I still want to take some better photos of the v-berth, the quarterberth, the head and the port side...but it's a start.


  1. Those are great shots of the boat, you have done a wonderful job. What did you guys use to cover the galley counter tops?

  2. Thanks!

    It's just laminate from Home Depot. We went there with an exact color in mind - fairly expensive stuff, but we wanted it to look good. But when we got there, they had two 4'x8' sheets of this stuff for $10 apiece. They were in fairly rough shape, but we could tell that there were large enough sections to cover the countertop, table and nav station without compromising anything.

    So far it's held up great. Might not be the most boat like thing, but we like it.

  3. She's a beautiful boat. I love the big table! The pictures were great. Your dog is so cool. People like you inspire us to keep working on our old boat.

  4. Thank you!

    I'll have to take some pictures in the spring/summer - in these we still have our rug heater down (such an amazing difference it made for heat this year).

    Our boat has come a long way. When we got her, she was a shell of a boat. Now she's comfy cozy.
