Bone dry

Just tucking BP up for the winter. I removed the Bailey hatch by the stern to check the sounder transducers & she's bone dry under the deck. You can see some sawdust that's still in there from the fit out, all powder dry

That rigging tube design is interesting.

Is it PVC plumbing fittings with Sikaflex to seal/glue?
