the way things go its not unexpected to run out of good clean water while out to sea
and we all know its just not easy to get a refill right away.
so i put my brain to work on a simple solution.
i came up with the idea a while ago, took me a while to figure out the cheapest
and easiest way...
my brother and i are making a tubular steel frame that slides into the slot the slats sit in
this will be the casing for a wooden or steel hinged door that opens to the outside
with measurements we can make a door for any boat and you can add whatever hardware you like to match your boat
should have my title for my boat before too much longer, id like to know what you people that do this often would do as far as going thru this boat totally.
i know i would like to separate the deck and hull so i can rebuild the flanges and seal them better. also the rails on top have been gone...
can i drill a hole into my keel to see whats in it? and where would be the best place to do so?
ive noticed i dont have a very deep bilge so im curious and if i cant get the title i wanna know if theres lead in there to sell as scrap.
this past January i was given what im told is a '79 Bristol 24 Corsair just for hauling it away
it had been abandoned out in the yard of a foreclosed home
the previous owners had started to restore it at some point and had pretty much stripped it
then left it uncovered in northern michigan...
