I am in contact with the company that will be suppling and fitting the tubes.
They have given me instructions as to their requirements .
So i have taken their advise so far as size of tubes and what they would like in order to fit them.
The plug for the nose has NO holes cut so the tube sockets can be fitted when or if i ever get it completed.
any thing from a 1 mtr radius to a radius of 1.250 .
as for stuff used to form a plug well it is a home build .
The foam used are insulation cavity boards the foam was cut using a kitchen waste bin as the template.
the lip moulding to attach the tubes to the rear of the transom "shock horror" again will be formed using the inside of the bin for a mould.
and the list i dare say will go on and on as home builds do.
However using odd items found around the home to assist in formwork does not mean the boat will be badly made.
The well at the rear for the bilge pump i was thinking moulding the outside of a plastic tupperware container.
The battery box well another moulding from some other item around the house.
