A double berth extends across the bridge deck on removable infill panels. When not in use the bedding can be folded over, panels stowed under the bedding and a seat is then available port and starboard. A portapotti can be stowed under one of the single bunks. Plenty of stowage is available in the cabin, also room for an "esky" cooler.

The beams are timber and plywood fibreglassed. The complete boat is of legal width for trailering so no folding or assembling required. Auxiliary power is an extra long shaft outboard motor, 4 hp mounted on a standard lifting bracket mounted on the aft beam. Double shuffle should be a handy boat for weekending/camping in sheltered waters. If kept light a small car is all that should be necessary for towing.
