The Never Ending Search For Storage
In an attempt to make a 26 ft. boat more cruising comfortable, I plan to utilize some of the unused space under the V Berth for easily accessable storage.
In the area I plan to use sits the intake for the head.
It is a thru hull with a nut (ball valve screwed on). From what I have read it should be replaced with a flanged seacock anyway.
I am considering moving the intake into the port dinette locker.
I would not like the idea of things sliding around and hitting an intake.
How big of a deal is fixing the hole it will leave.
I do have a copy of Don Casey's Sailboat Maintenance Manual as well as the West Marine Fiberglass Boat Repair & Maintenance book.
I have read both, it does not sound like too hard of a project, just do it right !
Am I missing something, should I be concerned about fixing the hole myself.
I have done limited fiberglass work, but I am certainly not an expert.
I would appreciate some advise.
Thanks in advance,
