Re: My new boat! (Lido 14)

Caleb has a good idea... you wont need very much floatation since there is no big lead keel to deal with anyhow. Just want a little reserve insurance... I have used the large 3 Liter soda pop containers for other small boat projects as reserve buoyancy... just be sure they are trapped in a enclosed space so they cant just float up and leave you sinking...The off brand colas usually have that larger size... they are very strong, much more than 1 gallon jugs...i guess thats from the stress of holding back pressurized co2 beverage when dropped after being in a hot car all day !!!! Good luck with the new toy !!! Bruce L
