Re: So: what modifications have you made to your boat to increase its seaworthiness?

I increased my cockpit drains in size from 1" to 2" and added a thru hull so I have 2 on the stearn. It' drains very fast now on either tack. I got rid of all thru hulls below the water line, ( No Inboard other wise I would have one for the intake) I increased the thickness of my lexan window's and have plywood strom boards that slide into postion on the outside. Added a mast head running light for better viz. ( I spend enough time in a commercial wheel house to know it's appreciated) That's just a few of the thing's I've done recently
