Ballast tanks 2

We have fitted the starboard ballast tank, with hatch covers temporarily in place.  Next step is to seal the seams with biaxial fibreglass tape and epoxy resin.  Note the quality black stereo speaker.

On the port side, here is the hole cut in the aft bulkhead for a sump tank which will be fabricated on the aft side of the bulkhead.  Inlet pipe (one and one half inch) and crossover pipe (three inch) will be fitted to the sump tank.
