The cabin sole panels came up, the table unbolted with four bolts and you could lift both water tanks out after removing a couple of hold down ss crossbeams.
The access hatches were about ten inches in diameter.
The diesel tank was under the aft berth and was also removable through the companionway door.
The engine/trans assembly was also removable through the companionway door without any drama or cutting.
The rudder (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.

Re: Hans Christian Models

Who said I was arguing? Just correcting a couple of things, barn door
Neutrally buoyant airfoil shaped with a protective skeg removable without digging a hole when on the hard..yes.
