I've gone for 9mm here too, although I'm still worried that will be too thin. I've cut the sections (managed to get the whole deck out of one sheet) and glassed one in. Just waiting for the rain to stop to get the rest in!

Have you fitted tanks back into the stern?

No. As I said I'm going to leave the hull non-flooding. I've glassed over the drain holes (which just had filler in before).

I know what you mean about getting the fuel tank out from under the seat, I had the same type of seat on my 4.7 and it was irritating . Do you have enough room at the stern for a couple of Barrus Tanks?

Haven't touched it for a few weeks now - been too busy with other stuff. I'm hoping to finish the deck this weekend.

There should be space for tanks at the back but I would quite like to keep them out of the way. I can get a 30l tank under the seat, but am still on the look out for a couple of bladders.

while your at it with the deck, if you are certain to leave the hull blocked, why not utilize space under the deck for fuel??? Must be some scope for it?

Bit late now as the majority of the deck is down. I did consider "pimping" this one by putting under-deck trunking etc in but decided in the end to keep it simple. Theres very little room under there, I think running a pipe through for cables and things would have been pretty tight.
