Does anyone have some ideas about how to get the 455 sail locker organised with a floor, shelves and fender storage ? I would appreciate receiving some information and photos or drawings.

We asked the yard to install hard floor in the sail locker (forepeak), 220V outlet for any tools connections and a 12V light. They also installed 2 plywood panels both sides where we have screwed onto some hooks for ropes and hoses. Sorry no pictures at hand - till January when I plan to be on the boat again.
We store 4 x 20L extra water jerry cans there on the floor, water hoses, deflated dinghy, folded bicycle, some minor things such as ropes and snubbers, and while underway we drop 10 large fenders in. We don't have any extra sails so that's about it.
After two years of using the boat I found that the floor in the sail locker doesn't have any ventilation so curious I removed half of it to find it accumulated some water under it. Now all dry and clean but I kept only half of the floor to keep the moist out.
Hope this helps.

Hi there,

i had meant to upload photos after fitting out my 455 sail locker a few months back - as per my Bow Locker post in July 16. Trying to upload without success...fingers crossed.

The floor is made from a PVC based product (wet line). I've added some anti slip adhesive from the local hardware - and a couple of poles for hanging fenders . I have included s/s U brackets to secure various items using elastic straps.

Thanks for the photo. It looks very well organised. By the way I notice that you have a Torqeedo electric outboard. I am also considering to purchase a Torqeedo Cruise 1003. Are you happy with the motor ?

Nice!  I'm personally very jealous of the spacious sail lockers that boats 455+ have.  

I also have a Torqeedo and really like it.  It's light, easy to maneuver in/out of the boat, charges on our inverter, and lasts a good long time on a charge.  We've never gotten it below 50% charge on any of our weekend trips (but have charged it during our week & longer cruises).  Also nice to not have to worry about keeping gasoline on board.

Our anchorages here in the sound are generally close to shore/dock and calm, which makes it perfect.  But it is slower than a gas motor, and wouldn't be good if you're using it across longer distances (1nm+) or rougher water conditions.

Agree with your comments Scott re the Torqeedo. Nice not having to carry fuel and have the extra weight.
It's definitely a slower ride, but a nice quiet one.

We also have Torquedo with one extra spare battery. Totally love it. No maintenance, no oil change, no combustible fuel on board and on top of that you get free charge at any restaurant.
But I'd be cautious keeping the batteries and the motor with open connectors in the sail locker - there is no ventilation (at least on our 445) and it can get very dump there.

Yes, fair point re storage. After realising access was going to be difficult once the locker was filled with spare sails and our inflatable tender, we've opted to store in the cabin. Makes charging much easier as well.
