Yep, having them secured is the plan.
We were looking for space to install holding tanks
and moving the ballast would provide a nice space close to the head
.... but now you all have me thinking ... and maybe I'll secure them where they lie with something like batons or screwed down cover and look for tankage in a different space.
Currently the shower
drains into the bilge
and I'm not happy with that...
...of course this is a "new to us" boat so I should really spend time living with it before messsing with things... but those tanks
are a priority.
