David and Lucille Paulsen came to us in May 2001 to discuss finishing off their 36' Northern Bay hull. They had already purchased the basics: hull, deck, engine, generator and tanks. They wanted their boat to be finished off in a special way and felt that only a custom builder could accomplish their goal. They wanted the interior to be a warm cherry. The pilothouse and exterior was to be a very traditional mahogany finish. PAUMONAK has a lot of "big boat" systems in her with full control from her helm station on the starboard side. A full electronics package, inverter, converter, battery charging system, wash down systems fore and aft, generator systems and stand alone 12/110 volt refrigerator and icemaker, plus air conditioning units forward and in the pilothouse area make her very comfortable. Her hull is painted flag blue and the decks are white. Accommodations include a V-berth forward with head and shower to starboard. The galley, boasting Corian(R) counters and a three burner stove with oven is to port. The soft overheads make her run quietly and there is a generous use of insulation as well. She is designed to run at 24 knots with the Volvo 430 engine. The Paulsens, who live in Long Island, made frequent visits to our shop and they truly enjoyed building a custom boat. We launched PAUMONAK early 2002 as planned and ready to run.
