Her tabernacle mounted mast could be used to carry a simple sail arrangement.
She has a two-berth cabin with standing headroom under the skylight, a drop-leaf table, two lockers (one hanging), and a bulkhead-mounted Taylor paraffin heater. Forward is the fo'c'sle with Porta Potti, wash-basin, chain-locker and spares-rack.
The Galley is fitted with a two-burner Taylor paraffin cooker with pressurised fuel tank (which also serves the cabin heater) in a locker below on the port side, and sink-and-drainer over a locker on the starboard side, and is sheltered by an extension of the deck above the cabin.
The varnished mahogany engine-casing doubles up as the "kitchen-table".
Aft is the large 9ft by 6ft cockpit.
Under the small stern-deck is the 12-gallon LRP-petrol tank, and the 10-gallon flexible water-tank piped to the sink and wash-basin.
Daphne is powered by a Morris Navigator Mk 2 petrol engine (no. 496, 1498cc), driving her original stern gear through a 2:1 reduction gear-box.
Currently used on the River Thames, she has a Boat Safety Certificate until 12.07.03
