Accommodation plan and section
Accommodation layout: Lynn Rival was fitted out to the standard two head layout for the Rival 38A, although like many Rivals she differs in some details. The otherwise standard 'keyhole' dividing the saloon from the galley/nav station has a pair of teak posts, providing additional handholds welcome in rough weather. She has six fixed berths plus one pilot berth in three cabins. One saloon berth can be converted to a double, but the necessary mattresses no longer exist. The nav station to port has a full size (Admiralty) chart table with storage below for several hundred charts kept flat (or other stuff!) and a bench seat with batteries below.
Internal finish: Upholstery was replaced in 2012, and Oceanair blinds installed. Headlining, and sidelining in fore and aft cabins, was replaced in 2012. Most internal doors have been removed, retaining only one, between saloon and for'ard head. Shower curtains screen the heads. Apart from the galley and heads the finish is varnished teak and teak faced plywood, all of which was refurbished (although with no significant replacement) in 2012.
Heads: Each head contains a Lavac Zenith toilet discharging into a 70 litre holding tank, and a small hand basin with mixer shower head (cold water only in for'ard head). Both heads were completely rebuilt in 2012, using Hi-macs acrylic/bauxite for all facings, providing a bright, hygienic and easy to clean surface. Below teak grid flooring the bilges are emptied by electric pumps.
Galley: The galley was also fully refitted in 2012, with the sink, fridge and cooker area rebuilt with Hi-macs worktops and facings. A large single stainless steel sink has a mixer tap, a drinking water tap (see under plumbing), and two hand pumps for fresh and salt water. The fridge is a Tektanks HDPE box insulated with a minimum of 60mm of Aerogel superinsulation (as used by NASA for the Mars Rovers) which is the equivalent of over 100mm of expanded PU foam insulation, giving an increased internal volume of 57 litres. The cooker is a gimballed Plastimo Neptune 2500 with two burners, oven and grill.
