Chewy's Atlantic 21 project

Leading on from this thread:

Project Anyone?

I now have this sat on my drive!
It came with the deck pre-cut, console, a frame and two stainless tanks amd rails for slide on tubes. Anyway its built like a brick outhouse!
Its Hensh's old boat, he used to frequent here a while back.

Deck fits pretty much spot on, rather than have it so it can be lifted out I think I'm gonna screw it down then glass over it....

Didn't the RNLI make their boats so they could be basically taken to bits every three years or something at Poole?

Are you going to leave tank removal and bilge pump access?

I believe this 21 isn't ex RNLI, looks more like an offshore FRC from the a frame and deck.
I'll leave it so the tanks can be accessed still but the deck was purely screwed down orignally.
One tank has a slight weap and still need to check the other.
Am open to suggestions on the best way to do things....

My old build thread might give you a few ideas, being a very similar design.
Not saying everything I did was the best way of course!

I'd have binned it and made a new one in aluminium but that's just me

I would've made the under deck trunks twice the size as well.

I reckon you got the right idea just screwing the deck down and glassing over. My removable sections make the whole process much more complicated, a couple of hatches would probably do instead.
