Making Your Boat Unsinkable
More than once I have seen posts saying it's easy to make your boat unsinkable, but after searching the forums, I don't see a comprehensive discussions about it. Best methods? Styrofoam added to bow and stern? Coring materials? Is there an equation for how much styrofoam I should use based on displacement/keel weight/etc.?
I recently was given a lot of 6" thick blue Styrofoam and wouldn't mind adding it to my boat so that if I ever screw up and fill it full of water, it won't go down! What are the recommendations for doing this properly?
I'm in a Starwind 22 with 2600 lbs of displacement and a 775 lb ballast. But I would like to know general suggestions that could be applied to any boat. (but ANY suggestions/advice would be appreciated!)
