    Bedard designed this huge open top on the RoG (Plein Air?) companionway for soft covers like a kayak. He's in Florida. NorCal boat is gonna need a hardtop. How am I going to leave it on the beach in Aquatic Park without a padlocked interior?

    So I made a mock up of the cabin top and then a two piece cover that wedges forward into place. Hope it fits when the boat eventually gets built. Yikes!

    Solo gave me this acrylic dome left over from Ocean Planet program. I'm thinking I'll make a second aft hatch with it for Pacific North West cruising.Name:  images6.jpg

    This is the most complicated fifteen foot sailboat design of all time.
    I tackled the plumbing for the water ballast system. First I eliminated the port cockpit cubicle because I need the space to store the composting toilet.
    The labels will need to be smaller.

    Holy cow. Does the boat need that to reduce heeling or to add displacement (like the Mac26X)? If heeling, just sit on the rail?

    After yesterday, I can help you with the labels!

    One of the funniest, silliest send-ups I've ever read.

    I think it's both Bob. Designer mentions filling both tanks in lumpy conditions. It's 80 pounds per side. What happened yesterday?
    Glad you liked it Jackie.

    Nah. You just need a bigger bulkhead. Just expand the plans by 15%. You got this!

    Are you building a boat or designing a new COVID respirator? --Pat
