Re: Making Your Boat Unsinkable
I think I could put more than that in without filling any cabin space if I filled the front locker, lined the bottom of other lockers, and used the aft storage under the cockpit. Adding foam insulation to the walls would also add buoyancy (as well as sound/heat).
I'm probably not going to do that, but this doesn't seem unreasonable to me. Am I wrong?
Unless you glass that flotation space over, you can always easily remove the styrofoam or closed cell foam when you realize you need more space than you have left.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
