and like most I wanted something different. I'm not a sailor but I do
like to row and use a electric trolling motor. So I left out the
center board, mast partner, rudder, etc. I also installed frames on 1
1/2 ft centers. I did install #3 bulkhead and decked it. filled the
cavite with foam flotation. I also installed a storage box with hatch
in that bow area. In the stern I put two foam flotation boxes one on
each side. I installed two row lock stations. I like that little
boat, its a little tender, but I'll build another for fishing.
