Congrats on your Viking, looks like quite a challenge ahead of you. OTOH you get the layout you want once you're done! Since they're in plain sight, torqued down the keel bolts
? Mine were all loose and I had some seepage in via them. Ended up raking out the keel
pocket seam and caulking then fairing with West epoxy
. Do you have the inboard version or outboard
well in the lazarette?
Mine came without any stove, have seen one with Origo
2 burner on stbd side. I put propane
one in with new sink/tank this spring. Tinkering never ends.
The V28 group is marginally active but very helpful webmaster. Sign up! There is a stripped out hull racing
in Ontario, so the hulls may be solid enough for that. Get yourself in the water with a clean dry hull asap, rather than sit on the hard
for a few summers working on perfection. Cockpit
ample long enough to sleep in under a boom tent if you need. Cheers
