    Oh those are to small, they will clog when they are needed the most.

    You are talking about the limber holes, right? Might be true. I think we will have at look again at them when the wholes for the keel bolts are bored - although the boat is a glued construction and I seriously hope for a dry bilge.

    In the meantime more photos: Second layer of deck is done:





    and the cabin sole is also developing: You can see the two fixed-to-the-boat parts of the sole that have been installed now, leaving space for the removable parts of the sole in between:

    Run a light chain through them, it will clear any gunk easily.

    This would for sure add a traditional flavour to the boat ...

    Thomas,
    I mention the limber holes because in my view they should be effective in a worst case scenario due catastrophic failure of hull integrity, failure of a through hull or other unforeseen event. I'd rather have the bilge pump pumping water directly from the bottom of the bilge without filling each segment between floors and pouring over the tops.

    No doubt about this one, there will be sufficiently sized limber holes.

    I see they're down the middle. I would put them on either side of the floor so that they can drain even when heeled over on one tack or the other. A router with a large square bit would make nice square holes if run on a guide flush with the top of the keel timber. You're below the lower bolt holding the frame to the floor so you're not losing any strength there. Easy and quick to do.

    And the work continues. The cabin sole with the removable elements to access the bilge is finished:

    Closed:



    and open:



    Framework of the sofa takes shape:




    The head and the space for the head door is beeing planned:



    And finally the form tor the ballast keel is nearly finished: That ballast keel founding will be quite an operation!

    Very nice, I do Like the Gartside designs. I very near came to building a 24ft launch of his for a client, nearly ten years ago now.

    What is new? The ballast model is ready. Here to be seen on it's saw horses



    and here try fitted on the boat itself:





    A little fiddling around and we will have a fit. Time to add the still missing front part of the keel!

    Work is also progressing above the deck level: The deck house and the coamings are fitted.

    For the deck house sides as well as for the coamings the plan calls for a sandwich from a plywood layer in the center with two external layers of WRC, and so this is what we do:
