Right: the doubler plate welded in place on the foredeck. This provides extra strength for handling the heavy loads of anchoring and mooring.


Below: the rudder tube and rudder stock.

Below: the proposed Weaver forehatch. Opening is only 20" wide, which may be too narrow for use as an emergency exit.

Right: The engine hatch in pilothouse floor. Hinges and latches are still being designed. The smaller forward portion opens to view belts and access fuel filters, while the larger aft portion opens for hand starting and access to the GCF bypass oil filters.


Below: veiw aft through the open top of the pilothouse. Click on thumbnail for larger image.
