Thanks Cookee

I'll glass the false floor in and leave the void as a void.

Cheers

Nasher.

Ocean 6.5

Hey Nasher....

how are you? Long time no mail........read this with interest. Strangely, my Ocean has a different set up...there is a drain hole in the rear of the anchor locker /well which drains into the inner hull and then back (seemingly passing the fuel tank) to the drain plug in the well /sump so that I can remove the bung letting the water into the sump and then pump out with the bilge when on the trailer /lifted at the bow....

I was in two minds as to whether allowing water into the inner hull on purpose (albeit small amounts) is a good idea (have to remember to drain the inner hull periodically)...had been contemplating putting a bung in the anchor locker as a result...

Probably not much use to you and your deliberations, but odd that the set up is different.

Hope you're well mate.....may be dropping you a PM in the future to pick your brain re repowering if thats okay.

Dan

Hey Chewy,

All really good thanks, although could do with some better weather! Heading off to Porthmadog early tomorrow to collect the boat......it's been travelling up from Newport Pembs over last few days (with the EA) doing more water sampling. Glad it's not needed tomorrow as the weather looks pretty bad......

Off topic am off to Poole mid October (work permitting) to do my D class helm...can't wait.

D.

Unfortunately it's the 18th to the 23rd.......shame, as i would have loved to have blagged a trip out with someone and would have been good to put names to faces!

Dan

Edit: The food is bloody marvelous...unfortunately am trying to lose weight before I get down there.....not very graceful when climbing off and on a capsized D class at the best of times! Last time down there I sat at breakfast eating muesli whilst the others tucked into a fry up....my mum always told me i was just big boned, and besides i'll be in a much better position come the next ice age!

Hey Dan, good to see it's all going according to plan

My inner hull is being prepared for a flexible fuel tank to go in at some stage.
In the mean time I've considered putting a bed down there as it's certainly big enough.

Give us a chance, I only get to work on the boat weekends.

Although the triangular shaped piece of Marine ply I'm going to use for the false floor is sat on the bench with the underside already coated in a layer of mat and flowcoat

I'll take some images over the weekend when I get to put it in.

Nasher.

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:-
http://www.rib.net/forum/showthread....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.

Nasher.

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.
