Very nice use of cardboard! Ever run out or do you just take apart and reuse?

I just toss it when I'm done. Othewise it gets a bunch of creases in it. A single cardboard box is easy to cut into a bunch of strips. They could also be thinner if need be, but don't skimp on the hot glue.

Silentneko I have been on vacation for the last 3 weeks and am finally home and am going back on some of the posts. One that caught my eye right away is your red 12G fuel tank you are encasing below deck. That is an absolute no go. Those red tanks are for above deck tanks with no enclosure of any type. If you want to enclose your tank use one of these, http://moellermarine.com/moeller-marine ... nk-032612/ These below deck tanks or tanks made for enclosures have a different lesser permeability than the red tanks for above deck tanks and are safer.

While this is not good news for you it is the rules by the ABYC and USCG and for safety sakes. For anyone else looking for tanks take this into account.

Tom, you might want to read over my thread again. It's not going below the deck, it's going to slide in under the seat in front of the console. I've made sure this complies with all standards, including the size of the cut out needed to vent for the cu ft of the compartment. Thanks though.

I bought a bimini for my OD18 and decided not to use it. I'm about 30 minutes from you in Lithia. Paid $169 but will let you have it for any offer, including 0 if you want it. It is all put together and the box it came in is gone. Easier to unload to a fellow Bateau builder than trying to return. The canvas is tan.

That's a mighty fine offer, and the color would work too. What width is it? Is it the 73-78" on the link?
