That is what I thought when I saw the boat last fall (and commented here I think).
Any added ventilation for the hulls in mind?

Looks great!!

No plans for the hulls as of yet. I get good flow at ancor from the exscape hatchs. I do plan a prop to keep them open.

I thought about that but was concerned about the freeboard there. It just seemed that a little chop could cause problems. Although water in the head area could be a non-issue I guess, even if it is salt.

Therapy,

With the escape hatches open at anchor you get no slop or chop into the hulls. We have sat out 30 knots no problem with water entry.

One small safety tip. We have a red flag attached on the security bar of each safety hatch with velcro. When we remove the bar to open the hatch we take the flag off and velcro it onto the steering wheel. That way you remember to close the hatch before you leave.

I think Larry means is that at anchor the flow of air was enough for the hulls, which I agree. It is great while sleeping, or showering. it is the saloon that lacks for ventilation.
Larry you did a great job.

All you do is pull the table off the 2 posts, then pull the posts from the base. FP supplied me with 2 mahogany posts that are 12.75" long and 2 3/16 " dia. you put these wooden posts in the metal base and place the table on top of the posts. place the cushion on the table top and you have it.

Scott,
Are the mahogany posts tapered at the ends like the metal posts? If not then one could use just about any material in their place. Of course you dont want to strip the ridges that are there for the regular posts.
thanks,
Lori

Rails

Hi All

Eileen and I also added rails to the stern, which give an ideal outboard mount.

MASF rating

Hi All

Has anyone else applied for a rating? I have the application here, and one of the things it ask is sail number. I was thinking it might be nice for us to come up with a standard. I was thinking FP36### where ### is your hull number. Coments please.

Larry

And it was such a good deal last fall.
I am sort of sorry (off and on) I did not bite even though I don't think it "grabs" me.
