Re: Sole replacement ideas,
something to keep in mind with filling those pockets.. and this may sound counterintuitive.. You will make the hull stiffer in those areas by filling them. This will affect how the hull flexes when underway and when in any kind of rough weather. You could very easily be strengthening an area that was not meant to be strengthened and in doing so, subjecting other areas to newer and higher levels of stress they were not designed to handle.
If you want to add weight down low and do not want to use those areas for storage. I would build something to fit into the space, not something that fills it
