Tellico Lady's Galley


    Since the Captain considers the galley the most important part of the boat, here is a picture of where we will endeavour to keep bodies and souls together for 9+ months!.  The refrigerator is an 18 cu.ft. unit with a good sized bottom freezer, so we hope to not starve too often.

 Tellico Lady's Pilothouse Area


    This is where we will navigate and steer from for about 1000 hours!  We have redundant depth sounders, GPS navigation systems, and engines, -- so we hope that we will not be stranded anywhere and always able to get ourselves to port without calling for a tow.  However, -- we do have Boat US unlimited tow insurance just in case.

Tellico Lady's Master Stateroom


    After a hard day's work at the helm, we will recharge here.  Our #3, Miss Molly loves to walk the "ramp" you can see above the bed with the little pinrail "fence".  She thinks that is was specialy designed specifically for her.

Tellico Lady's Guest Stateroom


    We hope and expect to have some company for some segments of our trip, and this is where they will bunk.  Being midship and transverse, it is likely the best place to sleep according to the ultimate "guru" Robert P. Beebe.  This is due to the fact that (a) you are low down in the boat near the center of roll, and (b) you are near the center of the boat (forward/aft) and thus near the center of pitch.  Thus, both inconveniences are minimized.
