There was still plenty of room to store several large trash bags that we accumulated.

Re: Saba 50 Exteriors Dimensions & Specs

Great work……..
Some questions.

How high is air between water line and bottom of the hull?

Is the holding tanks for gray water? How do you empty them?
What about black water?

Batteries…….. Any chance to fit more batteries?

Cheers,
Magnus
