Has anybody out there shortened a Porta Bote?
Is it do-able? I've got a stowage problem which I'm working through.
(I'm thinking only of the later square cornered transom models. Chop the transom off, then move it forward & rejoin to the hull
& bottom by way of glue / heat weld / bolting / capping rail or a combination of all of these. And then maybe relocate the rear seat depending on how much the Bote has been shortened. Yes, I'm aware that the HIN detail will no longer align with the factual hull
length and so there will be registration
issues, but for now I am focussed on the technical possibilities.)
