"The concept of this boat was to be completely self-contained," Vance says. But more than that, the owner wanted the boat built so that while he's traveling, if he sees a spot he'd like to fish, he can stop and fish. That means no deck-loading fuel, and no coolers in the cockpit. You have to be ready to go with a clean layout and everything stored away properly.
"Before we built this thing, the owner knew exactly where he wanted everything to go, right down to the canned goods and the cereal boxes," Vance says. "So we built 50 drawers in the boat, with at least half of those in the galley, to provide planned storage space for everything."
