Bow cover, cargo net, fuel tank in bow and ladder

Hi all!

These are some pics of modifications done in my SIB this summer.
Well, the ladder was second summer. But I believe a ladder is very useful, and easy to use. So I insist with it!

First pic is at Cala de El Plomo. We mounted there a homemade bow cover and a homemade cargo net. Bow cover is useful not only to prevent water spray but also seagull shit! Cargo net keeps there 6 PFD, VHF, medical box, safe "whatever "barrel, water, ...

Second pic, also at El Plomo is a detail of the bow cover.

Third pic is a friend of mine at Los Muertos beach. There you can see I have already placed the fuel tank down the cargo net. The lady used the ladder to get on board. Easy and safe.

Fourth pic at El Plomo is boating crew: 7 people. That's why I need space and a cargo net! Also, you can see the ladder.

And last one, wifey skipping past Cala Enmedio.

I hope you enjoy them and take some ideas.

We moor the boat at Aguamarga, in a mooring block at 200m from the beach. So the skipper always gets to the boat swimming. Passengers get on board at a nautical channel in the beach.

Nice pictures Azzurro. My Honwave came with the standard Honda bow bag/cover but your arrangement is probably more useful.

I forget if yours is the 3.5 or 4.0m? We hope to get out on the river today in ours, first try of assembling the boat/floor with the public looking on!

Hi Fenlander:

Mine is 4.0m . Honwave bow bag is less than perfect. I'll not keep thinks dry, it is too small, and it's better to tie the cover to the rubber band with plastic hooks. And there is not much space inside the bag.

I carry plenty of things in the cargo net. My wife thinks I'm crazy, but when boating you always miss something; and as I always reach the boat swimming, I cannot take many things with me. The only things I take there when swimming is mask&snorkel, fins, a mobile phone in a waterproof bag, MOB chord and sunglasses (all hanging on my neck).

Just get a short neoprene suit for swimming, water's not so cold in the South (I've been in Penzance for 2 weeks - 30 years ago).

Some people uses kayaks (we have one). Get to the buoy and tie until you are back, then untie, get to the beach and chain it in a safe place. This summer we had plenty of kayak thefts (so what we did is paint terrific horribly ours with spray; even though, I find mooring is more secure than ports for thefts...).
Anyways I prefer snorkeling to the buoy, there's so much sealife in our cove.


A friend of mine mounts and dismounts each day. He has a 10hp engine and a 3.4m sib. But I'm afraid next summer we'll dive to find a free mooring block for him.
