The child bride is itching to go cruising in our blow boat again, so I'm pushing hard to get Skinnydip to the point where she can be rat rod run tested again, this time at WOT, before we go cruising. Like you, I want to see how she performs!
Through-hull drain tubes were installed port and starboard today in both the anchor locker and the e-drive locker. The four through hull holes were cut, then each tube was glued into position with protrusions of approximately 1/8" internally and externally. They will be trimmed back flush with the hull after the epoxy has cured.
The first pic shows the glass tubing, which were offcuts from the tubes fabricated up to house the stainless steel grab bar.
The second pic shows how the tubes have been glued into position ready for trimming.
