Third Layup Complete - Stringers are now glassed in and the two Longitudinals have just been been added along with the first layer of the transom. The "V" cut into the bottom of the transom is so that a drainage bung can be fitted through the GRP without have to cut through the wood of the transom.

The First Picture shows the central drainage duct that is glassed into the base of the hull, this has holes drilled down its length and allows any water to drain through the hull to the back once the bulkheads are in place.

Then some pitcures of the bespoke GRP fuel tank manufactured by Osprey that is glassed into the hull. We have now moved over to a Weema style fitting for fuel senders that used a screw in sender rather then the older 5 stud plate fitting.
