I'm thinking about moving the bottle rack so it's sideways just behind the console.
My first boat had it like that and when I specced a new Humber last year It was side ways to.
Only problem is that it was done properly.
What is the glue they use to help bond it ? Any advice ?

The bottle rack will either be:-
Bolted to a deck matrix, best method imho.
Be screwed & glassed in, good.
Screwed to the deck & Sika'd (Sika 291 is the usual stuff, sticks like do-dah to a blanket) this would be my least preferred method.
If you turn your bottle rack sideways you will increase the forces on the rack mountings, due to the feet being further away from the centre line & increasing the moment. Stick some heavy diving gear in a rack & start throwing it around in a lumpy sea......... Also if you mount the rack sideways, loading of the diving gear will be critical to maintain the balance of the boat.
It also makes it a pain to get around.
All IMHO of course.

Yeah I see what your saying. It's more the structural fix, it looks like it has that glue and screwed. In the other Humber it is screwed and glued to, but I assume they have gone on to the strings rather than just the floor.

There will be about 10" left either side. For legs to squeeze through when we need to but I also like the idea of keeping people further down the boat so they are not walking on bags and touching things 🙈.

It's a big boat but only has about 500mm at the back where you can put your fins on straight.

Thanks for the info tho.

Phil.
