Re: Gangway Deck Socket

I'm not sure how much that starboard materials weight has contributed to your total weight, but have you considered drilling some strategically placed holes in it to lighten it up?
I'm thinking an inch and a half or two inch hole saw may do the trick.
Can you post any pics of it?
