Haven't done much yet, but in a couple of weeks I am going up to the cottage for March Break and will do some work on doors and hatches.

Cheers

I foamed about 2/3 of the space under the sole, all of the areas except the center area from the bow to where the fuel tanks are located. I put an anchor locker in the fore most space and have limber holes down the center all the way to the stern. I don't know what the regulations are in the US, but...

I think the aft cabin idea is kind of cool. Just to clarify, however, when I said I never took water over the bow, I mean't in wave form. when it was rough out I did get quite a bit of spray at times. This is in addition to water I took on through the too large hole I made in the bow transom for my ...

Four plastic tanks. Since only relatively small ones would fit in that space I needed that many to get the total fuel I wanted. Small boat regs in Canada state that each tank must have its own fill. ( I don't know if it is the same in the US...) Not sure why this is since aircraft often have a singl...

Daddy,

The tanks were 11 gal, located under the sole in the rear outer most areas between the stringer and the side hull. Also put a bilge pump in the center. I will see if I can find some pictures.

The cabin was made of 1 inch foam between two sheets of 1/8 marine ply vacuum bagged. The windows are glass and were quite heavy and obviously would affect the lines at rest. The boat is not out by much, it only fails to drain about 1/4 inch of water or so that pools next to the door between the coc...

The tanks are under the cockpit floor, as far back as I could get them. I also stored all heavy gear and provisions in the rear of the boat, including water (I don't have a water tank but had portable jugs which I strapped accross the rear transom). Even with full tanks and water she was a little bo...
