out after removing a couple of hold down ss crossbeams.
The access hatches were about ten inches in diameter.
tank was under the aft berth and was also removable through the companionway
The engine/trans assembly was also removable through the companionway
door without any drama or cutting.
(airfoil section, not barn door) is designed to be neutrally bouyant so it doesn't add helm
while heeling, and is protected with a skeg
Since all of these things also apply to the HC34, though not a modified copy design, but an original by Bob Perry, along with the deletion of cable steering
and I've already said your woodwork is prettier, what are you arguing about? I've replaced engine/transmission, by just removing dodger
and putting engine
cover on dining table, very undramatic, took one day to exchange. Fuel tank
was in same place (which I've increased to 40 gal), along with another in lazarette. I believe you're arguing apples and oranges, a HC34, a HC33, or a LN35 are only related by country of manufacture...nothing else.
