Re: finally got my Seasprite home!
Seasprites tend to sit "bow down" as they were originally designed to have a small inboard engine. As I intend on taking this small boat cruising more than a weekend at a time, I was going to double up the battery capacity and move them as far aft as possible. To do this I was going to put a sealed box under the cockpit with a watertight lid to hold the batteries. That is all wasted space on this boat, and just tucking the batteries up there would be a pain for maintance.
That is one of the reasons I was going for a full replacement.. but laying a new deck over the old one has it's advantages too. I will have to think hard about it
In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -buddha
