That's how us scots make a hatch. How do you southern norverners make an atch?

I just thought that if Jonathan was going to have to remove his tank, it's not such a no-no as might be thought. There are three tanks in there so not much under 150 galls total. It wouldn't be too difficult to make a big lid to close it off once the new tank was in place.

Great idea, but since he has a rather nice cabin, can I suggest you attack the problem from underneath

Of Course! Why didn't I think of that ... I'm sure Eups will be grateful for your suggestion... what say we persuade him to bring his Rib over and we combine forces? I'll start from the Deck and you start from the Hull... with a prize awarded to who gets the tanks out first.....

Jono get with it, bloody big brute- not everything can be solved by brute force- I am talking about hairline cracks i, e less than a mm wide and about 5 cms. long. I am not talking about demolishing the boat. Anyway, if It cannot be done quickly and cheaply- will install new tanks under the front box and bypass the actual ones.

You gotta learn to be gentle, considerate, and understanding to lesser mortals or else you going to burn out long before the candle does.

best regards

Jonathan
