|Reconstruction of the sea chest: |
Y-shaped inlets for forward and reverse speed.
|Cut-out in the hull for installing the sea chest.|
|4mm-balsa plating and glass fibre coating.|
|Dry fitting of the inlet made from styrene.|
|Adjusting the fit was done with files.|
|Testing the inlet: it actually works very well!|
|I painted the hull flat black because it is |
visible from outside.
