In some parts of the world they are considered a delicacy so perhaps if you had a section of untreated wood on the bottom of your boat, lets call it a sacrificial "wormode", you could cultivate and harvest the worms regularly as an occasional entré to be washed down with a good red. I hear they taste like oysters! :D
DON'T ENCOURAGE HIM!!! Next we'll be reading a tome on an e-chiller with forced refrigerated air utilizing an enzymatic reaction from methane in the sediments and driven by the catalyst associated with diesel exhaust to chill the worms down! And all of that will be constructed in a day or two with absolutely not a single drop of epoxy missing its target.

Glassed in two layers of 1/4" packers to raise the e-motor's anti-vibration mounts so that when they are adjusted down the belt can be removed, and when they are adjusted up the belt is tensioned.

Because the engine box needs to move up and down, there is a box shroud on its underside which penetrates into the cool air duct below.

The second picture shows the motor box tilted back to reveal the box shroud.

The wood boats I've worked on have all had a sacrificial 'worm shoe' the full length of the keel made of a wood species that the worms will attack before attacking the planking. In Florida as in all the tropics a wood boat has to hauled and checked every year, with the worm shoe being replaced whenever it gets too eaten up.

Thanks Marc, I'm enjoying finding my way with Skinnydip's build :D

Well Eric with his C21 build and Richard with his FS18 build are about to achieve significant primer milestones. Tomorrow I’m hoping to achieve one that will be a relief to me.

I’m hoping to epoxy down the aft locker sole, and in so doing, bury my less than fond memories of too numerous changes to the diesel engine and e-motor cooling duct runs and bilge blower choices.

Spent today addressing minor things that only become important once it hits you that the area you're working on is about to be entombed, hopefully for many years, or perhaps more accurately, so that it can remain entombed for many years.

I can’t wait to bury the changes.

And the next day, nobody looking at Skinnydip, including me with my self-inflicted amnesia, will be any the wiser. :D
