Have been working on the boat
making a few modifications to get it ready for the season.
Wired new depth
finder, got a different boarding ladder, going to install a hand rail above the ladder today. Running all halyards back to the cock pit. Have to replace one of the spreaders, blah, blah, blah. Boats mean parts
, and time. I'm not complaining, I love messing on the boat
. Okay maybe a little complaint about the money
Here is my problem: The MacGregor
26 has no place to put the outboard
gas tank. Up 'til now it has always just sat on top of the aft lazerette on the stern. Aft lazerette is huge. I'm thinking maybe I could put in a through haul fitting for the fuel
line and just build a shelf inside the lazerette for the tank. Aft lazerette is sealed off from the rest of the boat although there are a couple of places where wiring
runs into the interior
. Possible fumes could get through these areas.
Obviously, I will need to consider ventilation for the gas fumes. Will I just need vents or also a blower?
