So JSP wanted some Pics.

I shaped a piece of Marine ply to fit in the bottom of the locker and bring the floor of it up above the water line.

On one side I bonded strips of woven mat and clear flow-coated over the top for protection.

The locker in original form.
This image also shows the anchor bracket in place that I fabricated as per this thread:-
Anchor bracket

The new floor in the locker with the already flow-coated side down, and the inside of the locker abraded where required.

The finished floor that Iím not that happy with.
Having run out of proper flow coat I mixed some wax into some lay-up resin along with the only colour I had, Yellow, which obviously produced a very thin flow-coat.
Itís gone off properly though, and as itís only in the bottom of the locker and will be covered with a rubber mat I donít suppose it matters that much.

Just need to add the drain now.

Prompted by another thread I thought I'd update this one.

Unfortunately I've realised I don't have any decent images of the drain in place from the inside.

It's important to note that any water that finds its way in when I hit a wave can't go anywhere else in the boat as the locker has a bulkhead seperating it from from everywhere else.

The fitting used has a bung which so far I've only used to keep fresh water in the locker short term to soak some of the salt out of the warp.

Excuse the just fitted nature of the installed pic, as I've only removed the old antifoul where needed. Unfortunately when the hole was drilled through from the inside it couldn't have been in a more akward place.

You can just make out the drain above the water level on the third image.
