Robbin Smith and Warren Moeller, artists and craftspeople, have incorporated countless clever innovations into the refit of Cuchara, the 1976 Westsail 43 that's been their home and workshop for 16 years. For instance, the boat's cockpit lockers were refit to become watertight load carriers. One is big enough to hold the many tools of their trade, even a band saw. The other locker has held 1,000 coconuts-which they use to create their artwork, which includes bowls and spoons-in the space that used to be a quarter berth. On deck, there are one-and-a-half-inch deck drains fitted with a Y-valve for rain collection that can be turned on and off from below. "Much better than the bucket dance," says Warren, who also built in a hydraulic lifting engine-room door.
